they don't want my money!

Mon Jul 15, 2013 5:14 pm

I went to 6 different stores, today, mostly to cool off, but I needed a quart of Rustoleum dark hunter green paint. None had it, none offered to order it. In the last store, a young clerk looked on his Iphone, and found a dealer on Amazon, that had it cheaper, delivered price, than his store charged, for the quarts. I went home, and ordered it. (They complain that the internet steals customers. I would have ordered it, from any of the six stores, had they offered to get it!)

Amazon is pretty amazing in what they carry..... the problem with paint is it must ship ground so takes a while to get to ya.

That's funny- I painted my '46 Chevy Dark Hunter Green many years ago and last year I wanted to get some matching paint. Got tired of asking at the various Rust-Oleum suppliers. Nobody can be bothered to help a customer. They like to carry Hunter Green but not Dark Hunter Green. Like ya said it's easier to just pay $5-6 bucks to have it shipped rather than driving around. Doesn't matter to me if they can't use air freight, not in a rush.

Cost me a few coins LESS, from Amazon, than the store list price! Ed

It's a very dark green, like my truck. (Tractors are red, Trucks are green) It's for an indoor project, and won't show! Ed
