Dulux and More at Hot Pot Paint Vereeniging

Dulux and More at Hot Pot Paint Vereeniging


It’s early days in our new move to offer more to our customers via our web site. But at this point we are averaging around 60 visits each day throughout the month. Our target is 100 per day by the end of this year (2012) and then to just build from there. Can you help us? We would really appreciate your help in telling your friends on twitter, facebook and your own blogs if you have them 🙂

The more people we reach via our site, the more offers we will be able to introduce over time to give you even more value than we strive for right now and even more options. We already have had some great feedback about our web site and even had people travel to our store from over 100km away to purchase from us due to our great pricing.

Our in-store price watch has been met with hot controversy as we show the real prices comparisons when purchasing locally. The great thing about our price watch is that even if you can purchase cheaper locally, we tell you about it. So if our Dulux Weatherguard for example was cheaper at another store, we share that with you.

The whole point was to compare a true shopping basket experience to demonstrate that whilst we are an independent store, we aim to bring you the best price we can afford to deliver. We do not inflate our prices and have strict operational margins whenever possible. This combined with our great customer service brings you the ultimate shopping experience. Great service, better prices.

If you have had a good or bad experience, please tell us about it. We can be reached in store, or via our contact form on this web site and we always appreciate constructive feedback.

Join our on site newsletter for ever better deals as well. We now send out a Saturday deal flyer to our members each week on a Friday giving you even better than in-store deals for one day only each weekend.

Do You Browse the Web?

Hot Pot Paint Online Purchase Options?


We love to serve our customers in store. Its easier in general as we can better understand your needs and go through our wonderful paint and hardware range with you one to one. But sometimes your needs are more pressing and the option to call up and order over the phone has been critical to many in the past few years.

With the World Wide Web becoming ever more important in our busy world, we want to get feedback from our readers, browsers and buyers about the option to be able to purchase online?

[box color=green]What do you think? Would you like to be able to purchase certain product lines online?[/box]

Maybe you need paint, brushes, rollers, drop sheets, thinners, or tools and hardware, but simple do not have the time to come into store?

Perhaps you live in an area too far away from our Vereeniging store, but love our prices and would like to be able to order online?

Tell us what you think, let us know if you think this would benefit your shopping experience more with Hot Pot Paint. We always appreciate your feedback and would welcome your comments any time.


Either come along to see us in store to tell us what you think about web ordering, or give us a call, 016 428 5525, even use our online contact form to give us your thoughts.

Thanks for reading, have an awesome day, and we hope to see you in store some time soon.

Win R1000 Worth of Paint

Customer Services Team at Hot Pot Paint & Hardware


Our goal is to provide you with the best products and service at the right price. Sometimes we get it wrong and we want to make sure we are doing all we can to improve that every day. If you come into our Vereeniging store over the next couple of weeks, you may be asked to fill out a customer survey before you leave.

It will take just five minutes of your day, but will help us to make sure our service and our product choice is what you need and hopefully beat your expectations.

If you are lucky enough to get asked, you could also win R1,000.00 worth of paint on us in store. Each person who fills out a customer survey form will be automatically entered into our draw at the end of October 2012.

If you are coming to store Tuesday-Thursday mornings, then ask for Martin in store to assist you once you are done with your shop and you can fill out one of our forms 🙂 Otherwise we may just approach you randomly whilst you are here.

It matters to us each and every day of the year, so if you do not see our survey this time around, your thoughts still matter deeply to us! We always welcome feedback, so feel free to talk to Judy or Ernie Reid in store about your experience with us, or fill out the contact form here on our web site and tell us how you found your experience, either when you telephoned us or came in to the store.

If you would like to see some new ranges stocked, let us know. For example, Power Tools, Swimming Pool Kit, Lawnmowers, Leaf Blowers etc. Tell us what you would like to be able to purchase in store, we always appreciate your feedback.

We hope to see you in store very soon, thanks for using Hot Pot Paint & Hardware.
