    Just had a letter through the post from Dulux stating that they'll be putting paint prices up by 3% from january 4th.
    No doubt all the other paint companies will be doing the same.

    Yep. Johnstone’s seem to put theirs up 6% every year.

    Meanwhile B&Q will still be pumping out their cheap nasty retail paints out at get 2 for the price of 3.

    Droolux probably have to in all fairness.

    All the paint companies have had a record year and done very well out of lockdown!

    I had the misfortune of using Dulux this week The matt emulsion is shocking utter crap, the Satin WB was ok but £20 for 750ml.

    As I have said before the retail is a joke I have seen Crown and Dulux for 10 to 12 pounds for 10 ltrs the price for this is going down not up! but trade prices are constantly going up making it impossible for us to make a markup without us looking like we are ripping off our customers

    Dan’s got pictorial proof!

    we don’t wear longjohns much down here in the tropical southern counties @Marylee, but when we do, look out ladies! It’s the perfect accompaniment for a beer belly.

    They are similar to lady’s tights.
    If you’re busting for a tiddle, they’ve gotta come down.
    In my case they do as I usually end up putting them on back to front :biggrin:

    if you put them on back to front, isn’t that reverse cowgirl?
