    I know of a few who took bids for Walgreens. Are you curious who actually WON the bid?

    It is yet to be determined, as told by a store manager just yesterday. 8000ish stores? Insane.

    I am far from a lowballer, but depending on where in Ohio they are located, 2,800 might be right. Then again if they are in the snowbelt, forget about it, they will lose everything, as well as the contracts next year.

    Well, if they turn out like the lawn care has--quality down the crapper--$2800 might be just about right.

    Around here they are decided by the store manager. Last year they tried contract all the Missouri and Arkansas lawn service and gave that up before the first cut...

    Seasonal pricing is stupid. You can average and calc numbers until your fingers fall off. It's just a shot in the dark with a hope of coming out on top.

    I stayed away from them when I seen seasonal.
