    Been doing the local cvs for a few years
    Merritt says they don't have the contract back
    Any idea who ended up with them this year

    Cvs hasn't made a decision yet, Merit still might get them. Ferrandino got the land contract, so we'll see. Merit was great last year.

    I am also wanting to know this. We'd been working with Cherry Logistics on them.

    Cherry Logistics told me they would probably find out next week, I hope they keep them. Ferrandino can pound sand

    Ferrandino lol.... don't plan on getting paid then.

    I'd only consider them if Merit had them. Likely will be Ferrandino or USM... so not likely we'll do any in the foreseeable future.

    Cvs through Merit was top notch last year. Pay rate was great and 15-30 day turnaround.

    I worked for Merit for 3 years doing Rite Aids was previous Lipinski. Had to give them a little push once in a while but got paid and was paid in right order. This year I had a major issue with them. I told them in Jan. snow needed to be pushed back with loader in one lot and hauled from another. Never got clearance I gave them a price as they requested and told them they was going to have aplowed in parking lot unless something was done. 2 storms after I told this they gave me clearance to do so but from the price I gave 2 snows earlier. I did the service 2-18-14 and just got paid 2 weeks ago. They stop answering my emails, phone calls, and wouldn't return my calls. Finally I threaten hard and got to speak to someone. They said the problem was they couldn't get it entered in to system to pay me. I told them do the old school way of just writing me a check and I would be happy. They lost rite aids so they probably figured what the heck they would pay this guy. I got paid though only because I didn't give up.

    I did plowing for ServUrite last year. Very happy with them. Always got a call back and most the time some one answered the phone. Oh, and most importantly I got paid in good time.

    They have upstate as well. Just one problem they are less than half of what it should be. $5200 all inclusive on a corner lot? I don't think so.
