For 22 years I have been buying Para paint and stain from the same retailer. While the retailer is under new ownership I expected,the same friendly quality service. Today when I went to buy stain I was surprised that they had only 2 cans. The busiest part of the year for painting and they had only 2. I asked if they could order more and perhaps. The order lady would be in on Monday but she had to have a certain quantity to order. No thank you. 

I went to Home Hardware where they perfectly colour matched. Stain was on sale plus I got an extra can for free. Interesting that Home Hardware was busy and the other place was not. A message there I think.
