    I have stopped at both of these stores in the Cuyahoga Falls area only to be told by the manager "I am not aloud to discuss this with you". This has been going on for over a year. All I do is go into the store ask to speak to the manager, I hand her a card and identify myself and explain that I would like to discuss your snow and ice management for the upcoming season" All I am trying to find out is who is in charge of it and contact information. At one point I was given the name of the excising contractor but this is not what I want. How do I get her to listen to me?

    Most likely you need to speak to a corporate manager type,not at the store level.

    Go directly to their web site and check for vendor info to see who to email or call,calling is much better though ,

    SMS assist has wal-greens in Ohio, and I know CVS is under a national company as well. I just don't remember which one. Personally, I wouldn't plow for any national, but you can do what you want.

    Ferrandino and Sons has CVS in this area, I don't think they go into OH though.

    It seems that OH is still in Region I though, so maybe they do cover it.

    Our Walgreens highers local plowers, a friend of mine has tried to get there two stores in this area for years and the will not change contractors. He did get the summer maintenance contracts for the two stores, trying to get his foot in the door for winter. He also told me they are cheap, and just breaks even with all the summer work.

    Walgreens and CVS both are with Ferrandino and Sons this season, at least that is what I gathered from my F&S territory manager the other day when I was doing a site inspection at a Target.
