Anyone shopped the Ace Hardware shops?

This shop is listed with the msc that shops 5 guys...

I wanted to know what fee you would shop it says it takes 20 minutes but I very recently shopped a very similar store with another msc and that took 40 minutes...

Shopping Idaho and Oregon/Idaho border region.

But this MSC's requirements are different. IMHO, much easier. I love these shops! The employees are so well trained and customer service oriented! Sometimes it's hard to stay in the store the sort of "requested" 15-20 minutes. Much simpler than Intelli-shop hardware store shops.

IMHO, of course -- YMMV.
Hi, I just completed one today (my 2nd ever). I felt it was good entry level and easily completed, less then 72min. porch to submit. Compare reimbursement to expense depending on area you MS in, the experience was worth it.

I've done these for $20 plus the reimbursement. I will not do them for $10 and I certainly will not do them for $7.50.

They are not difficult.
I've done them from $6-$35. There's one that's walking distance from me. I usually go for $10 but someone has been taking it for $6 lately. I actually miss doing them and was looking forward as I needed some paint brushes
If offered by the MSC that has an App, I agree they are very easy. Better yet when bonused

The shop is quick and easy. I have 5 convenient locations near me, complete at least 3 each month at the base price, and soon will have new door hinges throughout the entire house. I am well stocked with paint brushes, rollers, plastic tarp, and enough pints of paint to complete my dining room.
Easy Peasy. Stocked up on loads of tarp, rollers, brushes, a cute Christmas lamp, Santa stickers, grout cleaner. I can go on and on. Takes less than 10 minutes and the reports are short and to the point.

Since they changed the required purchase item to no longer go along with the scenario that is great. I have several rolls of Teflon tape from those days.
I like doing these jobs but its been months since I have seen a job for them posted in my area. anyone else having that problem?
I usually get them done between 15-20 minutes. Depends if the sales folks are paying attention. Sometimes, I find myself browsing aimlessly for 10 minutes before talking to someone. That makes the shop extend to 22-25 minutes.

Pretty easy shop.
There is one near me where nobody wears a name tag. It's a hassle to pull names out of them creatively. The other ones I've done are a breeze, and I'm all stocked up on lightbulbs now.

Don't forget to get the employees name - if they don't have a name tag you have to ask. I just had one rejected.
