Where Are You Shopping Today?

I just got home from vacation, got some PO shops and convenience stores to do this week before the weather turns to crap again.

It's lame for you, but at least you know the scheduler was telling the truth....

Yeah, they were sold. I just looked at their website. The new company shops its communities.

Is it possible that the property really was sold and the group that purchased it is a different EPMS client who then immediately ordered more shops?

I do a ton of work for EPMS and have seen properties sold from one client to another. It's never happened while I had one assigned to me, but it could...

eye, this was with EPMS. It wasn't strange; she straight up lied. Now the job is back on the board and I got it.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
Today I had to go and take an exterior photo for an audio shop I did on Friday and the requirement was not in the guidelines (I saved a copy of the guidelines)....fun, fun, fun going 1/2 hour out of my way. On a positive note, I picked up a highly bonused shop that took me 10 minutes on site, that kinda made up for it LOL

Tomorrow is lunch at the Capital Grille
Well.... I WAS going to shop a casino today. It's been snowy and cold. Schools were cancelled, but businesses were open. When I called the casino, it just rang. However, casinos never close, right? I made the 30-minute trek and, when I arrived, it was closed. Every other business that should have been open was: drug store, grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, etc. But, the casino was closed. (It's normal Monday hours are 9:00 AM-4:00AM.). Aargh.

You probably looked like a gambling addict.
I shopped the few products from PapaChina with the online process. They are the wholesale supplier and today I am feeling good that I connected with them.
2 Goodwill shops, 1 Post Office Shop, 1 HP Ink Audit, 1 Grocery shop, and 1 online RAC shop. For me, that's a busy day, but for others, not so much.
@guysmom, the HP ink audit, how are they? Do you have to take a ton of pictures secretly? There are many in my area, but i wasn't sure, specially for the pay.

How do I get post office shops?

Sign up for the most talked about companies, it is one of them.

Busy day Weds and long drive

If I get done with these relatively early..will look for more shops..new area for me and don't want to miss shopping opportunities I could have done if I would have just looked for them.

@SoCalMama..sorry to hear about your husband, hopefully he has a quick recovery

It really depends. I usually don't do the ones in Walmart, because WMs are usually one big, unkempt mess, except for a couple of locations where the WMs are small or Neighborhood Marketplaces. I did a smaller Walmart location yesterday...yes, have to try your best to take covert pics. The labels for the out of stocks can be tricky, because you have to get very clear close-ups of them. Today, however, I did a CVS location....very small ink section...NO signs, just 1 picture, no out of stocks. It all depends. I've done them quite often, so I know what to expect. If you've never done them before, I would start with a CVS...the ink is usually located somewhere in the middle to rear area of the store. Then try a Walgreens....but the ink there is usually at the front of the store on a wall, a little trickier. Then, when you've done a few, try your hand at a smaller Walmart. You'll never know if you don't try! I can usually be in and out within 15-25 minutes, depending on the store.
I do the ones in drug stores (regardless of brand of the store) since the section is small and the number of photos is low. I did one in Costco and could not get a straight-on photo of the price tag because it was so high up. I am about 5'9", stood on my tip-toes, and reached as high up as I could with my cell phone - and the shop was almost refused for poor photo quality. The competition for drug stores and stationary stores in this area is fierce for the covert assignments. I take all that I can get. I don't do the announced photo audits, but they go quickly also.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008
@myst4au, thank you. I have to start with the easy ones, I am not even 5', those high shelves will be a challenge! Lol!
@guysmom, thank you for your suggestion. Let me see if i find a CVS to start with. Will let you know how it goes.
Don't exclude RiteAid or Walgreens or probably any other drug store. They will be as easy as CVS.

Nowhere due to snow.

Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.

(Yes, I stole Hoju's tagline.)
A bank platform, a teller shop near that, a bank phone shop.

Based in MD, near DC
Shopping from the Carolinas to New York
Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
2 gas station audits, Broken Yolk for breakfast, Smart and Final, Chase bank, BJs for dinner.
I can always get more shops between the two MSCs, but it's very hard to regain my trust.

The internet doesn't make you smart. It makes you good at regurgitation.

Thanks. He is still there and won't be out soon.
SoCal, prayers are going up for hubby.

I'm doing a shop at Sonic for dinner. The last one I did was for breakfast a few weeks ago. I went to do the report, and my item was not listed. I thought messed up, so I ate it (hee hee).

I read the guidelines for tonight's shop, and I was correct in what I ordered. Oh well.

Oh no! So sorry to hear that. *Hugs*
