Default Paint retailer here, may I come in?

Hello all! I'm a paint retailer in Central California, small town foothill area. I have been unsure how to introduce myself, so may I just say that I so enjoy reading and learning from all of you with the REAL work experience that I don't get from my side of the counter. I have been selling mostly Benjamin Moore paints for about 15 years now, with a smattering of experience in a few other brands and various sundries manufacturers. I am constantly humbled by the way some of you problem solve and the insight you provide as pros. It helps me understand my contractors in a way that I don't believe I could otherwise. I want to say Thank You!

Welcome

My BM dealer just stop selling quarts of Aura. Sherwin Williams doesn't carry quarts in Emerald Exterior. What the hell am I supposed to use to paint a front door?

Behr Marquee is not available in all sheen levels if you only need a quart.

End of rant.

Your rant is legit. I can't fathom why someone wouldn't carry quarts if at all possible in ALL products. When Ben Moore doesn't provide products in quarts, we pour off our own to accommodate the customer. I'll concede that I don't currently carry 5's of Aura, but probably will in the near future. Too bad Cali is a little out of your way....

Welcome from the great northwest!

Glad this crazy board has been helpful in understanding your contractors. You're suspicions about contractors have all been confirmed I'm sure!
