Excellent friendly service.

I've been shopping here for years. Service has always been excellent. I just bought a tin of paint here and accidentally dropped it as I was leaving. The guy who served me cleaned it up with no fuss and a few jokes to make me feel better! Highly recommended!

rude and unhelpful staff

The staff were very rude and clearly couldn't be bothered to assist me.

Can’t be bothered

Just lost a sale of over £900 worth of paint as the guy who answered the phone could not be bothered to write down what I needed and add it up ...... I’m glad he doesn’t work for me is all I can say ......

Rude and unhelpful.

The guy made out he was exhausted from mixing the paint. Really? from putting paint into a machine that mixes it for him? Then said it wasn't that close of a colourmatch, and when I questioned this, he said it was either that (Johnstone's) or pay for a more expensive brand. Rude, unhelpful, miserable old bloke. And no, it wasn't a good colourmatch. (Thankfully found a better shop since then).

RE: A White mix only!

I asked for a colour match. The employee saw my required chart colour and went to their paint mix machine. He then presented me with my required colour matched paint can. I opened the can, was shocked to see he has supplied me with
WHITE BASE PAINT! My required colour is certainly not white! I went somewhere else and they got it right!
Your staff member was very miserable also!
This has cost myself time and money.
I will not be back!
