Home of Economy is going to start carrying the Valspar line of house paints. In the past we've carried Van Sickle paints. I thought the Van Sickle did a great job at a very good price, but not enough customers knew who they were. Above you'll see the new display (not quite finished) in Grand Forks. We will be rolling these out to the other stores as we go along. In the meantime the Van Sickle House paints have been marked down to make room for the new Valspar. The paint market has changed over the years. Rather than looking for a good paint at a good price the consumer wants color and is willing to pay a bit more for what they get. Valspar is in other stores, but don't worry. We are offering our "Guaranteed Lowest Price" guarantee on the entire line. If you find it on the shelves of a competitor, OR in their ad, we'll match that price. I don't think we'll be having any problems with anyone's regular price because we've priced it to sell. But if someone else has it on sale our customers can buy it where they know they'll be treated right. We are still carrying the Van Sickle line of implement and farm paints. We do a great job with the equipment enamels and barn paints. We aren't going to mess with that business.
