After my demo, I am swinging by Best Buy for a quick display audit and a 5-minute brochure replenishment at Sam's Club (no associate interactions needed for either). Both of those are within a mile of the store where I am doing my demo.
Valet parking and then walking from there, 2 blocks to quick bank shop with bonus. Then, on to another valet parking shop across the street from a favorite restaurant that has a great $6.99 daily lunch special (no report.) Sunny day in the mid-40s, no wind, good walking weather in the city.

Local Habit Burger for Tri Tip sandwich. Great MSC but unfortunately the reimbursement has stayed the same over the years even though the prices have steadily increased. I just get the sandwich now without a drink, fries or their great onion rings. Habit loses out as they no longer get an evaluation of the other items on their menu.
@Jenny Cassada I did separate shops for 4 different MSCs that day. I've done the route shops for CSE at SFO, MIA, and JFK. They're super easy to complete. The retail shops usually take 5 minutes to complete, specialty/services shops take about 3-4 minutes, fast casual restaurants take about 10 minutes, and sit-down dining take 20-30 minutes. The report is really straightforward and usually takes me 10 minutes per shop to complete. If I do a route, I usually will also pick a few extra separate shops to make a bit more.
My week in review. Two lunch shops. Way too much stress and work for the reimbursement. They were delicious though. Toy store and got my first Christmas gift completed. All 3 shops were right by my job. Made $650 for a 4 hour focus group re: IT. Fed us and all. Wish I could do this every week.. Yesterday, a nice dinner but not my favorite menu options. Hated the report. Taking Dec. and January off because I don't want to be bothered. Happy holidays to all!
