    Just got this on my fax at work today. (Yes, I work for Sherwin Williams)

    This is BIG news since SW has almost 2500 retail stores plus a recent aquisition of several hundred Duron paint stores.......[​IMG]

    Sorry, I thought I had it sized reasonably.

    I thought you were accentuating the positive ! It's a tiny glimmer of hope, a rare bit of intellegence.

    This is awesome! I just sent a positive note to Customer Service via their website, suggest others do the same to let them know this was a good idea.

    Yup...it is big news.....If you read the memo...."Due to feedback from customers and employees,"

    So boycotting and letter writing does actually work.

    Sherwin Williams is a Fortune 200 company, not some second rate discount chain.

    Due to feedback from customers and employees," :evil: :D

    Good for them.

    It's a pity, though, that their paint stinks...

    Now if only the ICI Dulux paint store in Tacoma to change their policy against concealed carry. I told their manager posting this policy made the store the preferred retail store to rob. He told me they had to in order to try to dissuade drug addicts from entering to buy chemicals of some sort. Frankly he didn't seem too happy about the policy. Too bad, their paint is the best I've ever used.

    Wow, very cool.

    Ialways liked their paint, not to mention their very politically incorrect logo.

    Probably spray paint or tolulene. They could try selling the cheap spray paint for $5.00 a can and then gluing quarters to the ground in front of the store and watch the druggies try to pick them up.

    Know anything about that Spot77?:evil:

    Huh? What is the logic behind that? Are all the druggies walking around with CCW permits? Or do they really think a SIGN will deter an armed robbery?

    I like that quarter idea :) Be even more funny with a 5 dollar bill!

    That's great! I wish other companies could see that letter. It might make them stop and think about their own policies!

    Around mid August Sherwin Williams sent out a memo stating that a no weapons poster must be displayed in all stores; even in states which don't allow ccw.

    Lame idiots.
