Hey that reminds me

I think I heard that a can of SPAM is opened every 30 seconds in the United States?

That's really wild cause SPAM sucks and I haven't had it in like 10 years +

Default Misrepresented at first, YES, you are right!

PaintPro, will you now tell us what position you hold with Valspar?

I gotta say, I feel like you have earned a little less trust as you came onto this forum not being forthright about who you are and that you represent a manufacturer. We LOVE manufacturers' reps here as they can impart a lot of knowledge and answer a lot of questions. But you have portrayed yourself as a painting contractor

You have basically misrepresented yourself, haven't you.

You said, in the above post, "I am new to this forum but would like to tell you my experience with the Pro2000 from Valspar", but that's not exactly accurate, is it?

You also said, "I think too many painters have become blinded into thinking the smaller paint store has much better service." Please, do not insult us for the purpose of promoting bLowes. Some would consider that spamming.

Well, PaintPro, now that the truth be out, can you come clean and tell us who you really are?

thanks


I am a sales manager for Valspar. I have worked for other manufacturers as well including Sherwin Williams, MAB, and Duron paints. All of which are now owned by Sherwin Williams. I made a change in moving over to Valspar paints from SW for many reasons. They are a great company but they have many issues just like many of the large paint companies out there. I have a great deal of knowledge in the paint industry and have tried and used many products in the past. Paint reps should be out there learning about their competitors on a daily basis. Im not sure that they all do this but it is there job. I have various old SW customers who have used our new product and other Valspar products and had great success.

I am very surprised by this site. I have spent many years attending PDCA events, ABC events, and various other different painter association events. While attending these events, most of the painters were always interested in new technology and learning about new products to make their life easier and put more money in their pockets. With that said, yes shopping at Lowe's may have been a challenge in the past. We are working on those issues. But, as I said before, small paint stores service has gotten worse over the years. I used to deal with it firsthand. Their are various advantages to using a big box. I am not going to go thru everyone on them on here.

If you are interested in trying some of our products and learning about them, we have sales reps that can offer information about them and see if they meet your needs. I know our products are just as good and in many cases better than the competition. I will put my money behind it.

Many of the painters on here may not know but Lowe's can offer all the same services of the small paint store. The big difference, though, is that we can offer two companies truly standing behind one product. I didnt come on here to sell Valspar paints. I was just interested in seeing what this site was all about. If you are interested in more info on products or Valspar, let me know. You can always email me. [email protected]

[quote=onthecoast;84149]Sounds like a television commercial to me


Lowes doesn't give a rats ass about earning your business. 9 out of 10 times I will walk into that store without so much as a " Hello, Can I help you find something? "

The only time they were really "Helpful" was a few weeks back when all the Corporate guys were in for a visit. Just about every associate I past approached me to ask if I needed help and to remind me they are near by.

For God's sake people


If you talked to a local rep, you would get all the help you need. Lowe's is interested in helping. If you had a bad experience in the past, I would love to hear about it. But, things have changed and Lowe's is changing daily. Valspar has sales reps to help you that work for Valspar but represent Lowe's as well. They can take you order over the phone, email, text, etc... If you contacted one of them, you would be helped. In the past, they didnt take the time to help contractors because they were more of a DIY superstore. Now, they are more focused and understand what painters need. I completely get it if you are basing your opinion on past years.

The unfortunate thing is that by misrepresenting yourself you have damaged your credibility and possibly that of your product to many people here. Kind of a shame, as I liked the product and I was trying to give an honest opinion to the fellow members here.

Integrity is something that you cant buy for any amount of money, but you can lose very cheaply.
