B&Q / Price of paint

1 389 Honeypot Lane, Stanmore, United Kingdom

My son recently purchased a flat to rent out. It needed some decorating so my husband and I helped them out along with a professional decorator who was quite expensive so we ditched him after some initial work. We needed to buy some extra paint for the walls which was Dulux emulsion, 'almond white' we sent our son & his girlfriend to b&q but they didn't have this colour so they went off to an independent supplier. They ended up paying £68 for a 10 ltr pot of paint, absolute extortion! When they returned to the flat I obviously questioned the cost, but realized they cannot return a mixed pot. We telephoned the number on a receipt left from the decorator, which is where he got his supplies from but not local to us, and they quoted £42 for the same paint, such a massive difference in price. I actually cannot believe the price they were charged & feel there should be some comeback from this? Please advise. Kind regards Frances Dewitt
