    Reflecting the current market conditions, we regrettably need to implement a price increase of 4% comprising elements of both material and shipping costs, effective on all deliveries made from 1st April 2021.

    Prices never go down with trade paints! but you can pick up 10ltrs of Crown Matt retail for £12 in Wickes with 10% off for the trade accounts, retail seems to be getting cheaper doesn't seem fair does it?
    :facepalm:
    More conversations with customers about material prices

    Went into ldm Norwood on Sunday ar2 was cheaper than my online club price . £30 plus vat, and I don't have an account there that was shelf price.

    Apparently the takeover still not happened yet.

    Trade paint from the DCs a piss take now. Was in B&Q week or two ago and 10 ltr tub of Leyland Hard wearing matt caught my eye, £42. Rang my local Jonnos for a price just out of interest. £69 Inc trade discount. R.I.P. big white shed YNWA etc.

    Bought from Toolstation with 4% cashback. Buying a few paints from them now I have local branch and using tcb. Just have to shop around I guess. No idea of trade centre price for this product so I'm not exactly shopping around am I

    Seems like we are being forced out of work sometimes.

    What makes it worse is when some trade centres give Joe Public the same prices we get.

    I was told be thingy Bob, you should alway review your discount all the time at all the places you shop, you maybe surprised, they may give a little more.
    Always worth asking.

    My local Brombrough Paints is cheaper than all my tik trade prices by a long margin. 26.99+vat for 10L ar2 and about 20+ vat for a 3L optiva 5. Bit of a drive so usually stock up on ar2 when im passing or pop over if i need something asap

    They have a big sign with price on the stack of 10L tins at the entrance to the store - not my specific prices, anyone who walks into the store will know that price :scratchhead:
