Testimonials from dealers…
The most important thing I’ve seen them do is provide professional training. I can tell you firsthand that every person I have on my paint counter has been certified through the paint and coatings course. I’m encouraging my employees [to take other courses], they are all pretty comprehensive. With that course, you get them up to speed in half the time it would otherwise take.”
– Chuck Kempton, Dugan’s Paint & Flooring
“PDRA brings us current and updated information on industry subjects that many people are thinking about. And, it brings us great connections. I was recently traveling in Wisconsin and stopped in one of the PDRA member’s stores. They had some really wonderful store displays, and I took pictures so I can try to figure out how I can incorporate those ideas into what I do in my own store.”
– Carolyn Manhatton, Excelsior Paint & Design
