People on this board say Aldi is shopped and there are a few stores in southern NH. However, I have never seen it on the job board for the MSC I thought did them, so maybe the NH stores are not shopped. The major chains (Market Basket, Shaw's, Hannaford's, Stop and Shop) are not shopped. There is a smaller chain on the North Shore called Cosby's Market, which was once shopped. I just check the MSC who shopped them and I don't see them on their job board. I have not been checking that particular MSCs job board recently, so I don't know if Crosby has stopped their shopping program or whether all the shops have been taken for this month.
Thanks so much. I am already signed up with Northfork and will try Trendsource (although I have in my notes from 2012 that they require tax ID). I was set up with MF in 2012 but haven't down any shopping since then and am trying to get my login to work!
Never heard of Crosbys. I know Trader Joe's are shopped and I think I've heard Whole Foods might be, but I also know I can't ask for the MSC. Sounds like our regular chains aren't shopped based on eclark3 (those are all my regular stores).
If anyone else has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. For that matter, if you have any favorites in this local area, that would be great as well! I'm doing the sign up for a bunch thing, but so many aren't around here at all...
Actually, there's lots of pluses to having an EIN. It is more secure than your social security number. Your 1099 from The Source will show your EIN; there's a place on Schedule C for you to put it, too, for IRS purposes. (I might be wrong about that; it may be somewhere else on your tax return.) Also, if you ever apply for any kind of state or city licenses (you're a business now!) they may ask for it in order to be licensed.
One chain of Market Force grocery shops are just wasted space on their job board in my area. Sometimes it's only the reimbursement. The other chain is acceptable when bonused because it's so easy. Maritz used to have a grocery client for a chain in upstate NY which I think is also in the states you asked about.
