    Default Halfrauds i now know why.

    Went into Halfords today to pick up a tin of ultra blue paint for a mod.
    Check the little list that was hung up. Yes they do it
    Check the price. 5.65
    Check the shelf. Nothing labelled up as VX Ultra blue.
    Ask the lad to check. He checked the same shelf i just checked and said we must beof it out but we can mix it up for you.
    I said OK I'll wait. He said No you will have to pay now and collect it tomorrow that will be 11.50 please

    I said how come if it was on the shelf it's 5.65. You say you mix it yourself and it's 11.50.
    I said stick it I'll go to the dealer it's 9.05

    They never have ultra blue in any of my local halfords either - always have to get it mixed specially but never had to wait overnight for it!

    Stores only get the stock they sell the previous week, so if they sold 2 tins to one customer then it will be the next week before they are back in as they only stock 2 cans of each colour in store.

    As for the 11.50 to get it mixed - it's only 10.99 in every store i've been in, and they charge that because it's made to order rather than the load they get from the supplier that could have been mixed and canned last year.......

    They are also double the size of the ones you get from VX if i'm not mistaken....

    Also, with the christmas rush starting, stock deliveries on a Monday and budgets being cut they probably didn't have the staff to spend 20 minutes mixing the paint.

    I spent the whole weekend being shouted at by customers from all directions because they couldn't get what they wanted when they wanted it!! Thank god i'm off tomorrow!!!!!!!
