Lol. Why would I feel bad? Do you know anything about the business I am with or how "smart the business owner" is? The company I am with now has been around since 1940 and is the largest Benjamin Moore dealer in the South by volume and dollar amount. I know its not quite 100 years, but there is no doubt we will make it to 100. If I still remember you, Ill be sure to reach out then and let you know we made it okay. We have been the heroes in our market for a long time, and will continue to be so. But, that doesnt stop some painters from going elsewhere. GL to your venture as well Mike, you will definitely need it if you keep jumping to conclusions about others you know nothing about. As a business owner, you would think you would know better.

I walked into the store never with a credit card in my life, barely knowing anything, and first time walking in an SW, and got a charge account for $300, then in a month got my credit limit raised to $2000. For people just starting out without access/know-how and/or anxiety about getting credit from actual banks, SW really seems like a good deal, and depending on the products you buy, it can be. I would say as well, as a painter starting out, people are often hesitant about paying deposits, or some people may not be confident enough to ask for big deposits up front, and imo all these factors make SW as big as it is today.
And there is a key factor in any business...the cost of money. Especially when just starting, or more importantly wanting to grow. A store charge account is a short term loan, and one manner the store covers the cost of the loan is through their pricing. And if they are generous to whom they extend credit, there will be a higher default rate on that credit. Thus higher prices to cover losses. But, as I stated earlier, the liberal credit terms are valuable to many business owners who find it hard to "buy money", so they are willing to pay a premium price for paint and sundries.

I remember opening my account at the local BM store in the 70's. Told them I need a couple gallons of paint...."on account"? they asked. I don't have an account I told them. " Well just give us you name and address, and you will. And if you pay within 10 days of receipt, you get an extra 5%" (because it is a short term loan, they are figuring in an extra 5% in their pricing, which they are willing to forgo if you pay within 10 days). It was the beginning of a long and fruitful business relationship. Things should be so easy today.

We still do that, yet not many customers actually take advantage of it.

...so any way...back to the original topic,
I also like the new purdy chinex brushes.

And for those of you who DO like or use SW, get their pro app and get all the coupons and offers you want.
Ever since they came out with the half price brush trade-in, I've not paid more than 8-10 bucks for brushes.

And yes, I do have a selection of Coronas and like them a lot.

Of the Chinex brushes I've used, Purdy are the only ones I didn't like. They just don't feel like they have as full of a stock as other brushes. Ever since Purdy was bought out in 2004ish, it seems there are more complaints out there about their quality. Corona Excalibur was my 1st Chinex and it is an excellent brush. I've gone thru several since then. Also up there is the E&J. Hallman Lindsay Paints has a private label Chinex manufactured by Wooster. It is a bit softer than the others, and also a very nice brush.

People can by Purdy seconds brushes in lots of say like 4 or 6 for real cheap on Ebay. Some have defects in the handle or a bad taper and need to have the bristles trimmed. Many of the brushes seem to have no defects at all but no brush covers are included.

Hmmm- Iím confused why anyone here would worry too much about the cost of brushes when sundries should be paid for by the job your workin?

I try & find the best deal n stock up on favorites but thats cuz Iím notoriously bad at remembering I need a new brush till the most inconvenient moment so I usually buy a lot of um online whenever theirs a good price & hoard.

SW, DE, and Vista Paint have the market cornered in our area...thereís bound to be one within a 2-3 miles of most suburban jobs. So while yes, SW has always been WAY overpriced for sundries, if Iím on a supply run its hella cheaper to grab what I need while doin a pickup than it is to burn gas & time sittin in traffic to drive across town just to save a few bucks.

I assume all painters know its overpriced...if uíve ever shopped other retailerís or online it only takes one glance to balk at the prices the first time your in a branch. *at least theyíre never out of stock on anything important for that reason haha.

But still...unless its for shop play or personal use, Iím curious why the price diff chat seems to ruffle feathers?

Iíve purchased unbranded/2nds on ebay a few times for product testing & play...have only had 1 batch that was a joke- the other 2 times I was blown away by the quality.

Once it was listed as unbranded picassoís that didnít pass QA in production. It was such a steal for 10- 2Ē oval sash that I assumed theyíd actually be a chinese knock off but the seller had thousands of reviews @ 100% so I gave it a shot.

As far as I could tell they were the real deal or at least so dang close I couldnít tell the difference. That picasso model is my everyday ride or die so I really tried to find a difference but it felt, looked, and acted exactly the same!

It seems like it pops up a 2-3 times a year, maybe more often. I got some coupon on my phone last summer for a ridiculous price on 3M blue tape and bought a whole box of inch and 1 1/2 inch rolls.

Probably my most used brands are Purdy and Corona.

I personally like the clearcut line when cutting wall paint. It may not be the high-end brush some of you use, but I have good production with them.

Plus...I only use brushes for an hour or two. I typically wash and switch any time I need to stop for lunch or some other reason, so my brushes don't stay loaded for hours on end. I keep a clear plastic box with 12-15 brushes on the truck, some being cut-ins, enamel, primer brushes, etc.

The quality of the paint is as important as the performance of the brush for great results.
