I bought a can of “black” spray paint at xc, Fennel & Upper Gage, Hamilton and when I went to use it…it was “clear”. Â I had shaken the can, no colour. Â I sprayed it on newspaper…nothing. Â Great! Â The store does not do refunds or exchanges. Figures. Â They keep the paint in the back room, you have to ask for it. Â So I gave them the benefit of the doubt, ok, it’s just the one can. Â I had a can of white at home so I started my project with white instead (purchased long time ago elsewhere). I ran out of paint so I thought I would get white at the same store. Â Again I had to ask for it and the same guy was getting it for me. Â I asked if he would kindly spray it on the cardboard he has there…just so I can be sure it is white and I explained what had happened to me. Â He didn’t want to, he said, they are the colour of the lid and kids use them and put the wrong lids on them, that’s what must’ve happened to the one I bought, that’s why they keep them in theÂ back now. Â Well I told him. Â The one I bought was from the back…YOU got it for me and it didn’t work. Â So he reluctantly squirted a little and it just got a bit of paint on his finger, it was white so I took it.
I went to use it yesterday and it wouldn’t spray evenly…it just splattered and then quit altogether! Â I was so mad. Â So now I’ve spent about $4 (they were $1.99 ea) on paint that’s no good and I can’t do anything about it! Well, you can be sure I will never buy a SINGLE THING at that store again. Â What a bunch of scammers!!
