Salinity confusion

Ok, so im running my 1st cycle. One coral store (1st store) sells me water a week ago. All toxs r fine now. Go to another (2nd store) for coral ques. They test my water. Also ok, but salinity too low. They say I need 2.4. I do a 50% water change 2 days ago. Now, salinity at 1.4 (at 2nd store). I go back to 1st store. They test, say I'm fine at .25. I can safely add fish. WHO IS RIGHT? I am totally funcused.

Reef Aquarium Water Parameters by Randy Holmes-Farley - Reefkeeping.com
From the article....
"For reference, natural ocean water has a salinity of about 35 ppt, corresponding to a specific gravity of about 1.0264 and a conductivity of 53 mS/cm."
"I suggest targeting a salinity of 35 ppt (specific gravity = 1.0264; conductivity = 53 mS/cm)."
