    which national takes care of shopko stores? got a call this afternoon for the local one, guy who does it is a friend of mine. she insisted his price was too high and needed more bids. only 4 of us in town that do commercial property. apparently, nobody else put a number on it either.

    Would you bid against your friend? I'm just curious because I'm in a similar situation in my town.

    If loyalty to your friend is important you and you don't want to "steal" his business, why not just put in bid that's higher than his?

    definetly put friendship first, more importantly, don't let these nationals dictate prices!!! u and the other guys that could do this property, find out his price, and double it, triple it even.

    and he can do a modest increase in his price also, and they well be happy to pay it.

    Friendship aside, he was looking at who handles the Shopko account... You could call corporate & ask.
    I believe they are based out of Greenbay WI
