Trend Source question

Hey all, Im curious how many shops you can shop per day for them. In this case its the same company same city but all different locations in one city. Here is an example in case the question is confusing..I will use Shopko since I dont think Shopko is shopped by them.

Hypothetical city
Crevent

So lets say Trend source has 15 shops for Shopko in Crevent, but each one is a different location (Different Address) but all are in the same city

Am I allowed to shop all 15 stores if I want to?

Ignore the obvious time constraints for this question just giving a hypothetical scenario

Shopping Idaho and Oregon/Idaho border region.

You'd be wrong. They do shops at the retailer you mentioned. You might want to edit that out. But I have no idea how many shops you are allowed to do, because I never do more than 3-4 (if that) for them in a month.
There is most of the time some sort of rotation, but try and sign up for a few, see what happens.

Thanks..did not realize previous company mentioned in my pre edited question is shopped by them..have never seen it in my area.

Thanks for the responses but I think my original question is being misread. Im not saying that Im shopping the same location same city same address 15 times in one day.

What Im asking is lets say I sign up for 15 different location but same city and same store name..and lets say I want to shop all 15 shops in one day..lets say September 24th, 2019 as far as you know..Is this allowed?

They are not shopped by them, at least in my are of Los Angeles, CA.

They shop several office supply stores in my area, and I don't think the store is the actual client, I think it's the product that is the client, but you know how it goes in this forum smiling smiley
They are pretty responsive to email, though it's not immediate. I bet you could send them a message and find out.
They are in my area of the midwest.

I don't see why not? I usually only do grocery stores, which have time frames. So, even when there are 5-8 really close together, I only do 4. They answer their phone if you call (not on the weekends though). They are in San Diego, CA.
I get called and texted a few times a week. I sometimes call them. My impression of their work hours is that they follow Mountain Time rather than Pacific Time. Before 10 AM Eastern (= 8 AM mountain), no answer. After 4 PM Pacific (= 5 PM Mountain), no answer.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008

I think that most of them work 7:30 - 2:00 Pacific Time. They also work one weekend a month.

My scheduler (the one who I do the most work for) texts me at 7:45 AM Pacific most of the time. I see her text on my watch and reply a few minutes later. I am usually elbow deep in something hazardous that time of day, acids, etc.
My experience with them is they always email an answer next day, I've also gotten calls...they are good about responding.

I know their hours were 7:30-4:30 PT a couple years ago. Not sure whether or not that has changed.

I have done 7 of the same client in one day. I don't believe there's a daily limit, but there may be a self-assign limit. Also be aware if you're planning a faraway route that they unexpectedly change the shop dates sometimes (especially if it's a hard-to-fill location) due to spacing.

Happily shopping the Pacific Northwest. Shopping since 2013 and editing since 2018 smiling smiley
Thanks all again..redrose I will keep that in mind...also redrose noticed your in the pacific northwest...if your not already signed up with them
Reality Check
Customer Impact

Have lots of great shops in that area

Reality check is more reimbursement shops but pay well considering what type of shops they are.

Yes, you could shop the 15 different locations I believe but not all in same day. Check the resource guide on the TrendSource website. I also do a lot of shops for them.
They don't have any limitations on the number of shops. But most shops have a window for the shop and that can constrain the number of shops you can do in one day. They are in San Diego. The schedulers start at various times, depending especially on which part of the country they are scheduling for. Everyone is usually there core hours (10-2) M-Th. Fri is hit or miss. They are very responsive by phone.
Trendsource is at the top of my list. Easy to deal with, and responds quick to any issues. Never had a problem with them.
