My wife - who happens to be a pretty good friend of mine - asked if I could help her with a situation outside of any photographic requests. She works for a company that does marketing work for several charity drives; diabetes, breast cancer, etc., through stores all over the country. They run these ads in stores but the people at the stores will never send them the ads when they are printed. Her request is simple but it requires you (if you want to help) stopping by the stores to pick up a handful of printed ads and then mailing them to her.

IF YOU DO THIS... I will send you a signed print on 100% rag paper from my fine art collection in appreciation for your help.

Here are her directions:

Here is the info for the Drug Ads and Grocery Ads that I need…..
In-Store Drug Ads for Sav-on Drug Stores break on Sunday 2/26 (this Sunday)
In-Sore Circular Ads for Albertsons Grocery break on Sunday 3/5 (next Sunday)
I need both drug and grocery from the following areas:

Florida – Sav-on Albertsons
Texas – Sav-on Albertsons
Denver – Sav-on Albertsons
Pennsylvania or New Jersey – Sav-on ACME

I am attaching a jpeg to show what the ad looks like with a little variation depending on area, but they will have idea what to look for.

She's asking for a half dozen copies mailed asap to my studio address here in San Diego:
Robert Sanders
11717 Sorrento Valley Road
San Diego, CA 92121

Thank you very much for your help and remember there's a signed print in the offering.

I hit three Acme Sav-ons today in the Southeastern PA area and the circular/flyer (or whatever they call those these days) was nowhere to be found. Checked with managers in both deprtments -- grocery and drug -- and neither had a clue about it (don't worry, I didn't get into any of the specifics of "why" I was interested in seeing one, just that I was curious to get one).

So I struck out for you ... sorry.

If there was a date mix-up or you get more info of a specific Acme/Sav-on market that does have them in my area, give me a yell and I'll grab the half dozen for you!

Robert, I found two different ad circulars for Acme. I pulled 6 of each and they are on the way tomorrow morning. They aren't exactly the same as you posted but they are the sales for Feb. 26 thru March 23. Hope these work for you. Luke

Thanks for covering us PA-ers. Luke. I saw the two Acme flyers (one broadsheet and the other a tall booklet) but thought Robert was looking for the specific one he posted with the Sav-on items. Could be wrong though.
