    We have a Hamm's home store here that sends me a few a year.

    I've referred a few repairs and installs back.

    Just realized that huge estate management company we are working with this week was referred to us by a carpet retailer. I had talked about that partnership in a different thread. And booked a job today from a different retailer.

    We still do the My Flooring Warranty program with one retailer and they are the ones we get the most calls from.

    I go clean a Residential this Friday, it happens but not everyday

    Lady walked in and asked about Carpet Cleaning... the shop called me and we booked over the phone.

    The two high end carpet retailers that made it through the recession send us work.

    The larger retailers here seem to be evenly divided between referring work to cleaning companies that pay kickbacks or refusing to recommend anyone so they won't have to answer for the work.

    Two started their own cleaning departments during the recession.
