        I just want to tell you what Outstanding service I received from the store. I stopped in on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 to just get my can of paint mixed up. I found out that this paint can I had was 12 years old and may or may not be any good. Chris from the Commercial Store in Richfield, MN. showed me what my paint looked like after mixing it up. First of all there was rust pieces on the top layer of the paint because I didn't properly seal it. It was thick and Chris thought maybe if we added a little bit of water and removed all the rust debris I would have enough. He went back with my can of paint and with a mesh cloth he captured all of the debris and I got myself over half a quart of paint. He went over to the sink and added some water and mixed it all up. He opened the can to show me and it looked like a brand new can of paint!!! I actually had tears in my eyes!! This guy-went above and beyond what he had to do for me.

        First of all it was a commercial store so he could have sent me on my merry way, but he didn't. You are so LUCKY to have an employee like Chris! And I haven't even told you the most amazing thing that happen to me. I asked him what I owed him for his time and he said nothing! I have told my story to so many of my friends and they will shop first at Sherwin Williams. Than-you Chris from the bottom of my heart for helping me out. The paint matched perfectly and I really can't thank-you enough!

        Sincerely,

        Susan

        We decided to get an in-home consultation before painting our house. We knew we wanted to add a bit of color but had no idea how or what colors to chose from. Nicole came over with her millions of colors and very much knowledge on everything! She was sweet, caring, and listened to what we thought before pulling out colors to choose from. We went from wanting one or maybe two colors for our walls, to getting 4 different colors! :) She was genius and worked perfectly with us!

          I recently made a review and I was very upset. I was not getting any help from this company. After many attempts I did get my situation resolved by the District manager Monica **. She was very understanding and provided great customer service.

          Not reliable. Don't expect them to be open when promised. I called at lunch time to confirm their hours. They said they close at 7pm. I said I would be by after work. Stopped by at 5:45 after work and lights are out and the door is locked. Tried to call. No answer. Me and another customer hung out to dry. Today was also the last day of the 40% off sale. How convenient.

          Purchased Snap Dry on the salesman's recommendation. As a homeowner and boat owner I have painted with many products. I attempted to paint our front door with this stuff. I had the door off and on saw horses. The first attempt was with the recommended foam roller. The paint was thick and sticky. I could not get it to roll out without leaving those edge of the roller tracks. That was bad enough. It dried in a horrible orange peel finish. I had to strip it off because as I wet sanded it it had poor adhesion. The second try with a 2 inch Purdy brush. Never finished because you can't keep a wet edge.

          It dries thick and fast. I thinned it slightly with a very small amount of water. Still couldn't keep a wet edge. Temp was mid sixties inside. No luck with 15 airless tip either. More orange peel. Now I am out of paint, stripper, and time. I still have some primer and sandpaper left. I will get more stripper and a different paint. A thoroughly exasperating waste of time and money.

          We are upscale painting contractors in Southern AZ. SW paint, like a lot of things these days has gone from great to **! Especially their upper grades like A100, Duration, emerald (interior and exterior). We no longer use these products. They have flashing (sheen discrepancies problems) and line out whether rolled or sprayed. This is never good on a $4 million dollar home!

          Mixing paint back in the day (we’ve been doing this for 38 years), clerks had to eye match most colors and use a pull tinter for stock colors. Now it’s all computer scanned and there’s no skill or knowledge involved, a minimum wage job at best. Most of these kids wouldn’t know the first thing when product problems arise and the reps won’t tell you that corporate took the chemical guts out of a product line to save 5 cents a gallon (millions of dollars internationally) for fear of losing their job or having to reimburse us to make it right. It’s kinda a shame because at one time we used a lot of Sherwin-Williams product. Buyer beware!!! (

          I recently purchased a five gallon bucket of the HGTV Home paint. It clearly states it is one coat guaranteed. It was NOT one coat. I painted over a medium shade beige and a cream color with an off white color. Both had to have a second coat. At least the light shade should have only needed one coat. I am not happy that it did not live up to its claim. It was not a cheap paint either and I had to pay my painter extra to do the second coat. I would not buy this paint again.

          My husband and I went to Sherwin-Williams in Lockport, IL to purchase a gallon of paint. My husband inquired about the 30% off sale. The employee told us the sale started the next day, but we could purchase the paint today and bring the receipt back for an adjustment. We decided to get the paint. When we returned to get the adjustment, the assistant manager informed us his employee told him about it, but it is not their policy to do that. He refused to give us the price difference. If we would have known about that, we would have just waited to make the purchase. I am very disappointed that they would not honor the sale to us due to their own employee's mistake.

          Was in store on 6/4/19 to order a part for my company sprayer and I was dealing with THE STORE MANAGER. I told him what I wanted and he said I will have to order this part in and it may be in this coming Friday or Monday next week. Well it’s Monday and I call to see where my product was and the lady told me that the manager was very busy to talk to me about my order and said he did not know. I really wanted this product I asked for on Thursday for him to ORDER!!! Will never step foot in this place again. The manager was a **. He was on his phone the whole time I was in store getting my stuff that he really never ordered.

          When I went in to the Dayton Mall store the other day, I asked for a sample to try a color. The salesclerk told me to be sure to CLEAN THE PAINT OFF (after drying) before applying the paint we choose! I’ve never heard this before!! I verified what he was saying “So you’re telling me I have to use a chemical on my freshly primed drywall to REMOVE the sample color, even if I use that same color?!” He said yes, that it’s not a good quality paint so it bubbles or crumbles off under the better paint later. I verified what he was saying with the other clerk to be sure he wasn’t New & didn’t know what he was talking about. But she confirmed it, although she seemed uncomfortable. He then proceeded to charge me $9 for a quart of what he just told me is BAD paint! That’s $36 per gallon for BAD PAINT! I can get EXCELLENT paint from another brand for less than that! Now I’m afraid to use their paint after I already paid for the sample!
