Why wouldnt you be allowed to tell? You are not giving away special information. We are not mystery shopping. I dont do the DG's but I think it is Hallmark isnt it?

Not typically for something like merchandising... I have checked and none of the companies I work for have any clause that prohibits discussing what items are serviced in store... I would never discuss pay specifics for a company or client specific or protected information but just giving the names of companies that service a product is not against anything I have agreed to as a merchandiser.

Only mystery shopping companies dont allow you to disclose that info. Not merchandising companies. There is nothing secertive about merchandising at all. In fact companies I work for want you to tell everyone so they can get more employees in case they have open areas. No reson to withold a company name in Merchandising. That wouldnt make any sense.

Looking for info on who does cards in Menards, and regular Dollar stores. I was in a dollar store over the weekend and I heard the worker saying they needed a new card merchandiser and she said the company is Galleons?? Never heard of it. Anyone know?

This was a regular Dollar type store not a Dollar General or a Family Dollar. I do not have a Dollar General in my area and I do the Family Dollar.
Who does the cards in Menards? Books? DVD?

I know that Hallmark does some of the Freds stores, I don't know about the company.

When I worked for American Greetings I worked in a Dollar General doing a reset. That was in Maryland.
