    Have my numbers all crunched for the best buy bid, but only have one company to submit it to, anyone want to pm me if they know which nationals are all bidding on it?

    I would assume USM has something to do with it as I have heard that they have most around here. AGMG sent me a RFP for them but none were close enough to me.

    I know USM had the contract for several around here in past seasons, they aren't the company I am bidding for.

    I was offered a best buy next to a large lot we did last year. USM had it. Lets just say i :laughing::laughing::laughing: about the price they offered me it at. The number i had figured on it was almost double what they offered.

    Given that many Best Buys and similar retail chains are in commercial centers, unless you are the guy with the contract for a few other places in the same center or the guy with all of the CAM areas, you probably cant even come close on price, unless you're willing to lose money to get in the door.

    I have a 8 acre plaza and the best buy is attached to it. I have a loader on site and I still couldn't touch it !

    I bid a best buy this year but I don't think we will get it.
