    I guess I should have said, they have SOME of the Targets in Minnesota. I thought they had them all.

    They have the ones around me in Central MN, our target is plowed by 2 extremely rusty early 1980's chevy 1/2 ton trucks. The guy who does it owns nothing but that, no equipment of any sort

    USM has some of the Targets, spread throughout the country.

    Pricing is predatory; If it's not one vendor, it will be with another, and the price will be lower. If you like servicing Target, get ready to dip in to your margins to continue service.

    I had heard they had 300 Targets on a 3 year contract. This coming winter would be the last year of the contract. Lets hope so.

    AGMG invites you to submit a proposal for snow and ice management for Target locations throughout your state. We just received this request and I know is a quick turnaround. If you are interested in putting together prices for this site I need to have your bids back by Saturday April 23rd at noon est.

    I find it funny they now give examples of how you are to perform the job. They're still out fishing for those inexperienced contractors........

    AGMG has always been good to me. That said every year it seems the contracs get longer, & more complicated. As all nationals are now doing start plowing at 2 inches....but maintain slip free conditions, call it like it is...a clear lot policy agreement. Ill definitly quote the work, but everything gets factored into pricing, read the agreements guys. Last line of scope of work, looks like a section others have talked about before from someone else.
    f) If any claims are made against AGMG or Target as a result of the work or as a result of any actions or failures to act by the Supplier, or if AGMG or Target reasonably believes that such claims will be made, AGMG or Target may withhold from the amount otherwise due or to become due under this Agreement such amount as AGMG or Target reasonably determines may be necessary to cover such claims and to cover any costs which AGMG or Target reasonably anticipates may be incurred in connection with defending against such claims. The foregoing right to withhold payment shall not be AGMG or Target’s exclusive remedy and shall be in addition to any other remedies which AGMG or Target may have under this Agreement or at law or in equity.
