I updated and someone finally got back to me. And I did give them a break — but really, they have a problem and what I had to walk through was a bit excessive for my complaint, though Elke was forthcoming.
Things that are key (for me) to do business with.
- Good product.
- A business has to have a transparent way to reach them. MG’s new owners do not want to be reached.
- Everyone has mistakes, misbatches, etc. It is how they handle the problem that determines if I will still do business with them. As a two-person small business, we manage to connect and respond to our customers. When I finally got through to them, I still was treated suspiciously. Thankfully, Merriartist, who I buy from all the time, knows me, knows what I buy, and backed me on the return.
I went through all the steps and finally after a couple of weeks they were as dry as they were going to get. I had to return almost all the greens and many blues and a couple of browns that still gave me a headache and smelled badly from quite a ways away. I HAD TO PAY FOR THE RETURN. I like the quality of the paint on the ones I kept, but I won’t buy them again. Not when there are great paint companies that fulfill my basic requirements.
