Mid February around valentine you might not get a response right away but a lot of times customers hold them til they need you . Greenleaves does not have 5000 house though . So I am sure you have a lot more areas you can hit. The post office for greenleaves is on the left on 190 if you are coming from that way . It's right near old navy. That's we're the flyers have to be dropped off. Expect 1- 2% response if you get more then that's excellent.

We just switched in September to Crediit card only all of our resdential customers must put a credit card on file with us in order to do business . I was skeptical at first about doing this but it's going good . I'm glad we did. We get a few that don't want to put there cards on file but those are probably the ones who aren't going to pay anyway.
