I hear ya Ric. We used to be our State's largest purchaser of Scott's fertilizer. With permission of Cindy Fla__(our Scotts rep located in Ohio), we featured the Scotts name in our yellow page ad and in our brochures. This was fine for several years. In fact, Cindy asked me if I would go one step further by showing Scotts fert bags in our TV commercials. We did. We had a very close relationship with Scotts until............. about a year before some guy bought a Scotts lawn care franchise here. We were not aware of any franchise in our area, so we were confused when we received registered mail from a law firm out of Washington, D.C. They strongly threatened us with a serious law suit regarding the use of the Scotts name. WOW! This was out of the blue BIG TIME! We turned this over to our attorney who proved we were in the right. Cindy vouched for us. So to this date, I HATE Scotts, I hate their devious attorneys, and LESCO has been our best friend since. Maybe it was the east coast way of doing business --- I really don't know, but Scotts has made a lifelong enemy with me. Cindy still lives in Columbus, Ohio, and we stay in touch. She lost her job with Scotts right after the Scotts breakup/sell out. She is a swell lady, and it's no surprise to me that Scotts fired her, cuz she is too good for "them".
