Hi Sharon,
NCIM does have the Kroger store here in Port Clinton as well. My understanding is because of the pilot program that went on in different areas of the state in Ohio - they will be having all of the Kroger stores. I may be mistaken but I have a friend who worked in the pilot program and they will soon be in all of the stores soon. Demos Express. Now in my area - Demos Express is not in the Target store. Encore has Save a Lot stores and I have worked through Mass Connections at the Save a Lot stores. Sounds like a lot of musical chairs. A lot of changes going on.

I know Demo Express amd People Plus went into gether and it is called Called Sunflower Staffing here.Which is still being called Demo Express when they post ads, Which I was told by a PP scheduler they do the Sunflower Demos and only have the Super Target Stores.

I have this Wk done some Krogers through another Company for a high profile Glade events, through promo works, and my Kit came from NCIM.

So far MC hass not Had the Save a Lots here. Our Save A Lot is a independent owner,not a Company store. Which the manger talk to me 2 years ago about doing a demo and he like to have fell backwards when I told him what it would cost him.

Sunflower staffing(was formerly Demos Express) did not make it in Port Clinton or Sandusky, Ohio, Kroger stores. I received a phone call from NCIM and they are doing a pilot program Mondays through Thursdays from 1:30 to 7:30 creating meals - same meal all four days of the week. I went to the Interview on Wednesday in Maumee and there will be training before program launches. It will be the end of August - Two people in each store. They will be looking for Subs as well. It is in different Kroger stores - They are looking for NCIM people first and then others. Very good money. You might be interested in filling out an application or if you do work for them already call your Supervisor and see if it is in your area. It is not in the Columbus or Lexington, Dublin areas because Sunflower Marketing is in those Kroger Stores.

NCIM is still in the Dublin and Columbus Kroger stores. I no longer work for them but have several friends who do, and they are still working although not as much as they used to.

HI Jenny, In Sandusky they are working four days a week at the Kroger Store there. Here in Port Clinton we are only working two days a week. I work once a week and a friend of mine works a day as well. Things are slow here when the tourists leave. We are going in our seventh week of doing recipes and promoting. It is a lot different. I thank God for the little bit I work. It brings in the bacon. Ha!

Hi Mary, I have never heard of them. It sounds so much like a couple of other names out there. I guess Google would give you something.

Since I was out of the loop for so long I have lost track about what
is going on with demos. Are demos still going on in Walmart? They
had come to a complete halt where I live last summer.

WOW! Janjojo,by the looks of how many posts you have were you one of the originals or the person that started volition? Just curious. In my Walmart,it it crossmark (a little)and especially campaigners(Advantage sales and marketing). Mainly i just see campaigners carts and it has made a huge impact on Walmarts sales. Walmart now loves Advantage.
