    Hey Guys,

    Hope you can help me out, I am not asking you to give me your exact properties and their pricing for Walgreens.

    But I am just wondering on average how much Walgreens are going for per push/season.

    I do not want to go out a start low balling or anything but just want to get a feel of what the market is for these Walgreens, most of which I am interested in are, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I will help. An average walgreens 1-4" will pay about $90 in this area to the national company. they will also pay about the same to salt per application. The 4-6" rate will be about $150. 8"+ will be $200+. I am in the cincinnati market so this should help. any question I would be more that happy to help. Thanks, ChadOberson@obersons.com

    Everybody had to start somewhere, guys. We all know that most clients are NOT going to be sucked in by a wicked (read: unreasonably low) price this year--not after last season.

    Besides, if he were to lowball and grab a bunch of stores, he'd likely suffocate playing the waiting game, anyway--like a lot of "new entries" last year. And maybe he's situated right near the tri-state border, and can actually do 3 states within 25 miles.

    Thanks to Chad, for at least being forthcoming.


    :D

    Let me take you to my office, sit down and show you what accounts I have, how much they are worth and who to talk to for you to steal them from me. :laughing:

    Either got a Springwise or AGMUS Rfp, both of which are giant wastes of time.

    Got the same e-mail. I called the guy to ask if they have the contract but he didn't pick up. I'll try again tomorrow.

    SMS also takes care of Family Dollar and they definitely have that contract.

    Good luck with that. From the looks of your sig you should be able to handle that without any trouble.

    The message said they needed pricing by Monday the 26th, the one attachment had a virus and Norton wouldn't open it... seemed kind of odd

    That's odd...the message I was sent didn't have my e-mail address but yet it came to me. I thought that was strange. Did yours have the correct info?

    As long as it doesn't snow you'll be fine.
