Any hints for surveillance of other local frame shops? What are some good techniques for comparison price shopping? Do you get relatives or friends to do the scouting/spying for you? What's the best kind of work to take in for an estimate? How do you play dumb and not give yourself away? And does anyone really get into acting out this subterfuge? I wish I could psych myself up to go out and get some answers. I'd love to hear some ideas. I visit other frame shops out of town, but don't compare prices because the markets are different.
