    Contractor letters went out. WalMart has notified their stores and all bidders have been notified that USM was the provider chosen.

    Most of the Wals Marts in my area are in plazas and they don't have control over them.

    GV, we have several in plaza's that Walmart is responsible for, so most likely USM has the ones near you as well.

    If they are the landlord then yes, but if they are a tenant they no.

    I got a call today from USM for a wally world an hour away. Said the store manager didn't have anyone and they were desperate. (It's a mix of rain/snow here tonight - lol) Good to see they have things lined up early. Told the lady that I'm an hour away on a clear sunny, dry day. 3-4 hours away in a snow storm, so no, I'm not interested in it.

    It depends on how the lease agreement is written, weather the tenant or the management company is responsible for snow removal

    yeah the heat is on.. just warning when going over to an WM with your plow trucks and lot is a mess people are going see you for it.. no matter who is it.. if people go in store and ask manager about it will say it's the plow trucks outside or something not their problem. :dizzy:

    So maybe to end the confusion. You should get a plow route and stop hanging out at walmart during a snow fall

    One of the Wal Mart's in my area, the city actually owns the lot, but Wal Mart must maintain it. Its going to be interesting to see who they get for cheap this year.
