    Republic Service Group?

    Oot of San Diego?

    Office Depots.........3 of the 4 are in multi-tenant buildings.........pretty sure they don't know what they're talking aboot.

    Anyone hear\here\hier of them?

    Check, 4 of 4. They are not standalone stores.

    More nosy than anything else, as I highly doubt I'll do more than call or email them back and ask a bunch of questions just to waste their time.

    Beats me, but apparently they know what they're talking aboot.

    Oops, what was I thinking. They don't even know that these buildings are rented.

    Yep, they called my office today asking for a bid (over the phone) for landscape care for of few office depot stores. I told the guy $20 a month and he said surely you're kidding. I said surely you're kidding with your question too and hung up.

    I'm kinda bored, so I sent the following email to him\her:

    His\her response:

    Me:

    If it was snowing or doing anything, I wouldn't bother. But what's a few minutes of time and some monitor ink. lol

    Ho yeah, they also have contracts for Kmart (didn't know they were still around), Sears and Pizza Huts.

    Isn't Republic Service Group the massive waste management company? Competitors of Oakleaf and Waste Management? They had revenue of $78 billion last year.

    I don't see waste management on their website, but who knows.

    He\she never replied to my last email. Big surprise.

    Mark,

    Is that you typing? Your usually spot on with the english and not exactly pc. ( aboot -> about. hear\here\hier -> hear, his/her/it ) Blink once for help.


    Just asking them for a bidders package. If they do not have this or know what it is then they can not be representing these stores in any meaningful way. But having fun with the national guys is right up there with hammering on a blind call trying to sell you medical pills from Canada :nod:

    Showing signs of being PC means that one is giving up on getting the Republican presidential nomination.

    He's going rouge, aka Hillary supporter.

    He\she was from Kalifornia............I was probably too offensive for the PC morons in that state.

    I know at least for Ohio, Tegrete has Kmarts. We got the shaft on the one we've had for 3 seasons with only one complaint total for 3 seasons.

    I wouldn't piss on Tegrete's HQ if they were on fire.
