Goodbye Source #2

Today I got some bad news for my coin roll hunting hobby. The source for half of my coins is no more. The powers that be said it had to end. I didn't get any more explanation, but I imagine that they realized how much of an expense it was to help me. I always tried to be extra courteous to the tellers that helped me out there, but it only takes one person up the chain to end things rather quickly. Lately the halves from that bank have stunk so I don't feel too bad about moving on there, but I am bummed that they will not be collecting the coin rolls the customers brought in for me. Those coins yielded some good stuff and it is far easier to get such coins regularly from a teller I built up a relationship with rather than go around to different banks to scrounge them up. I am also a bit concerned that the higher up has put an end to source bank #1 too as they are the same company.

I'll have to look into some other sources and make do with source #1 (maybe) and source #3 for now.

A teller saved one Canadian penny for me.

Found: 2 pennies (1 at Circuit City, 1 at Sovereign Bank), 1 quarter (at Circuit City)

Damn... that's a shame and a PITA...

This is probably an obvious question, but do you know anyone who works for a bank, who might be able to put you in touch with someone else working local to you?

Do you have any charity / thrift shops that you could perhaps try and build a relationship with?

Let me know if you want any more suggestions.

Hey. Thanks for the advice. I think I'll just hit up other banks I've worked with a bit and try to establish some new relationships.
