    Just wondering how many Michigan mowers we have around. I am in Grand Rapids. Just heard about a guy who is bidding ALL of the CVS pharmacies in the state. One of my firefighter friends gave him my contact information for this part of Grand Rapids. Keep an eye out and maybe you can sub for him too if he wins the bid. Of course, my buddy didn't get any info from him...so if you're out there......give me a call.

    Nothing but a mess. The best thing you could do from everything I've heard - esPECially here in Michigan, is run the other way. Here is an example. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?threadid=31860&highlight=CVS

    Have you ever looked at these places? We call it "The Rite-Aid mentality". Spend $10,000 on landscape stock and grass, then let it go to waste in each manager's idea to "save a few bucks". These places are a waste of time. They all look the way they do for a reason... because they're not willing to get up off any money. Personally, I wouldn't go in and mow a weedpatch like these in such a high traffic area. It's not even worth the liability.
