Hi California Shoppers,
I live and shop in Los Angeles, and would like to know if there is anyone shopping in LA, who is interested in partnering to do some merchandising. MarketForce/Certified has quite a few merchandising opportunities which need 2 people, and I would love to do them, but don't know of anyone else in the area that would like to also.

Anyone interested can contact me or reply here.

Hi Irla, been a few days since your post, I was curious if you found an assistant yet? my husband and I work as a team in the Inland Empire area (when work finds us!) and do a lot of travel work (when that finds us).
I was sent a posting from the narms recruiter for work close to me from Market Force Information and was wondering if you ever found anybody to help you with these projects?
We may know somebody in your area (if they haven't left merchandising yet, a lot have!)
If you want you can E-mail and I will check with them.

Hi, I'm Kathie, and I've been shopping the Temecula/ Murrieta area in the Inland Empire for about 18 months now. I love fine dining shops, and amusement parks/skating/places I can take the kids, like Mulligan's. So I don't do a lot of the more run-of the mill assignments. I like reimbursements over just pay so I don't have to declare it, and I get free experiences. Folks at Volition have been really a big help to me!
If anyone in my area would like to network at all, I would be happy to send you any assignments I can't do! Thanks--

Hi Kathie, nice to meet you. I am not in need of anymore jobs, but I appreciate the offer. If you are ever in the Orange County area, let me know and we can meet for coffee.

Hi all...my first time on the forum here and I just wanted to send a BIG "thank you" to everyone who has generously shared so much helpful information about this industry. Before officially starting, I read everything I could find on ms-ing and the good companies via these forums and was able to avoid many pitfalls and problems that beset newbies. Usually if I had (and still have!) any questions at all I could quickly find the answer here.

I really appreciate everyone who has shared their valuable learning experiences with others and I hope to meet many of you at IMSC in LV.

I am new to this MS. I a so new I have not done a shop yet! I think this will fit into my life. I have a business with my husband and we are busy from April through August then not so much the rest of the year. I can start out slow and pick up some speed around Sept. I will be able to work in Temecula area and in the Fullerton area. I have Pam's book and have read through it twice now. I have registered with one company because they are looking for someone with my make of car. I read the company website areas intended for the client to get an idea of what service they offer.
I appreciate all of the info on the forum.

Hi Laura, thanks for purchasing the book. I am only about an hour away from you. I see a lot of postings for jobs in the Temecula area. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can be of any assistance to you.

Here in Temecula and I have completed 2 shops! Wow. I wonder how many people are shopping in Riverside County? How many shopping do not know about or post on this site? How many shopping don't want us to know about them? I would like to know you...whoever you are!

Wow. Some of you shoppers really get around. Here I am thinking I will just shop in my own town and some of you are all over the state! I think you must be good planners. When I visit family in Idaho maybe I will plan a couple of shops for Boise. Maybe something on my way through Las Vegas!

Hi LauraLyn, yes it does take planning (hubby's department) hear you on the Vegas thing, haven't had any projects there for awhile, may have to go on our own and help their economy a little.

Hey everyone. Been on this forum for quite a while, and have been MSing since 2004. I started in the Fullerton area, moved to the Inland Empire, and now live in Visalia. My main area is Visalia/Fresno, but I take routes anywhere within the state. :)

Best shopping experience? A FF shop in Mammoth Lakes in February (i.e., had to go the long way to get around the mountains - a 6 hour drive one-way), and the company ended up offering me EVERY shop they had along the way, allowed me to take my 2-year-old son with me on the shops, and reimbursed for gas and my hotel stay. I still hold that company very close to my heart.

Hi everyone. I'm in the Murrieta/Temecula valley area. I shop and merchandise all around southern Riverside though I prefer staying local. I would love to get to know any others of your that are local too. I know the competition is tight with the recession and all, but we can play nice I'm sure :) I know some merchandising jobs that need partners, so having someone to work with from time to time would be nice. You can PM me anytime. Thanks!

Hi All, I have been mystery shopping for almost 5 years, just found this site earlier this year. Nice to know so many people do just what I do. I am from the Lemoore area, but travel quite a distance when necessary.

I saw a shopper yesterday while I was out doing a shop. It was nice seeing one in my area. I wanted to say hi, but didn't want to jeopardize either of our results (same client, different companies)
