For anyone that has their own business maybe you can help me with this.
I have been putting up posters/cards inmy local supervalu for the past year or more and now over the last 2 weeks when I put up my advertisments etc , within 2 days they are either torn where my number is or have been removed.
I complained about this to Supervalu as they police the board and they have reassured me it is not them removing my advertisments.
I have an idea who it is as their is a beauty/hair dressers int he same complex as the shop and I am in the same area iykwim and also there is another lady who has started to advertise there also the last 2 weeks.
I am so annoyed as the expense I go to , My cards cost a fortune and my advertisements take me ages to do I so them myself and all for what
I am going to put them up again tomrrow and ask the girl in the kids shop who is besize where the board is to keep an eye and tell me if she sees anything ….
I am fuming ….RANT OVERJanuary 24, 2008 at 10:40 am #53458
Alison that is really really poor. If it is the people you suspect they are truly unprofessional and lacking in integrity.
I hope you can resolve it!
Best of luckJanuary 24, 2008 at 11:05 am #53460
put it this way alison those who do bad will receive bad so whoever is trying to remove your advert making it look like kids have messed around will only get bad their way no good will come of their meaness…..
can you laminate your advert that might help make it a little tougher to rip……January 24, 2008 at 11:14 am #53463
excellent idea Scole!January 24, 2008 at 11:16 am #53466
well it would really pee off the person who is trying to do that to alison……January 24, 2008 at 11:41 am #53471
LOL I had this vision of unscrupulous ad wrecker in my head trying to rip the laminated ad with their teeth and being descended on by super value staff
Laminate Alison!!January 24, 2008 at 3:02 pm #53493
the worst thing about all this is the person i expect of doin it I go to her salon every 4 months fork out 140e to get my hair done 👿
even if I laminated they can still remove them 👿 ,I’d love to hook them up to a live wire and give them a shock 😆January 24, 2008 at 3:05 pm #53494
aw no! change salons!
live wire would work………eekJanuary 24, 2008 at 3:26 pm #53496
I am going to put them up later and sit and wait in the car and see if they are taken down .GOD HELP who takes them down 😈 , there is enough business to go aorund everyone , the reason she is taking mine down is because I am 50-60% cheaper than her. 😀 I say that gets up her snout more soJanuary 24, 2008 at 3:47 pm #53500Taylor5Member
Would you not call in to the saloon toi make an appointment (which you wont keep of course) and while making uour appointment say "Oh my adverts are being destroyed and some supervalu staff seen who didit! Im totally shocked and will be keeping a close eye on this person" then give a sharp goodbye and leave here with that, if she is doing it she might shit herself if not she will just think your a nutter!!!! 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆January 24, 2008 at 3:57 pm #53502
Taylor5 thats mild to what I’D LOVE TO DO 😛 😀 😀
Its an idea though. Hubby and I are trying to come up with something , going to bring DD for a walk soon and we might just pop by that way and put up some more and see what goes downJanuary 24, 2008 at 4:04 pm #53504Taylor5Member
I had someone gpssiping about me a few years ago (about an accident I had) this person didnt go about talking about how bad my injuries were but went around telling anyone who would listen that I was taking my employer to the high court…… I went out of my way to see her and said "someone had told me there was loads of gossop and I found out who this person was and was very surprised at them etc" It was well worth it for the look on her face, she went bright red and I know from then it was her! Need I say the gossip stopped 😆 😆 😆 😆
You will know by the reaction you get if its her doing itJanuary 24, 2008 at 8:01 pm #53515breathingspaceMember
I know how you feel Alison!
I’m in Drogheda and the same has happened my posters and business cards.
But what goes around comes around, so whoever it is, they’re not doing themselves any favours.
Laws of Attraction!
Hope you catch them red-handed & red-faced!
