    Pricing and Presentation Transition: Freight Flow

    The buyers buy well in advance. I think the average is between 2-3 years lead time (especially if it's seasonal or exclusive). You can't fault the buyers for doing their job, they didn't know Covid and the freight issues would happen. And with the amount of money spent to buy and build these...

    Pricing and Presentation Transition: Freight Flow

    Hot wheels, squishmellows and brightroom cube organizers are clogging our steel. We’ve had some luck with transfers. I tell my pog team to defect all DCode/clearance that’s found while setting. It’s not a ton, but it’s one less endcap. I’m hurting on shelving, so trying to build flex end caps...

    Pricing and Presentation Transition: Freight Flow

    Currently, I'm guessing, all stores are overwhelmed with excess freight. We're starting to see the influx of all the product we didn't get last year along with all the stuff that was ordered for this year. At my store, our backroom valleys are filled to the gills and our steel space is jacked...

    Old Fillgroup Acronyms

    If anything, it should’ve been an F for fasteners or another H for hooks.

    Drastic Counts after Audit

    Does anyone know what happens if a Drastic Count is neither Accepted or Rejected? Does it time out? Does it get deleted and added back into the audit for the following cycle? I'm asking because our closing expert does the audits, but our closing lead doesn't do anything with the drastic counts...

    Old Fillgroup Acronyms

    PHAR is Over the Counter. I'm in agreement with @Ashfromoldsite about it was a zero and not the letter O. I forgot to include the numbers. HB01 is Personal Care and HB02 is Hair and Skin Care. Both being Health and Beauty groupings. I'm also in agreement with @60SecondsRemaining that the P...

    Old Fillgroup Acronyms

    Does anyone (looking at you legacy team members) recall what these acronyms stand for? HIPA: Home Improvement P? A? (the P might be Plastics and the A might be Air Filters). HBO: Health Beauty O? (we us HBA: Health Beauty Aids, but I know it's O and think it stands for Offerings).

    Price change process

    There’s still a consistency to what drops and when. Nothing drops Sundays. Bulk of the clearance drops Tuesday. Price Changes for Hardlines and Home/Seasonal drop mid week. Market and Essentials are everyday. Style, Beauty and Tech are early in the week. Pricing will be the heaviest on...

    Inventory overstock

    This is happening with TVs and Baby water at our store. Seriously, we are hardly selling any TVs, but we'll get a half dozen each truck.

    Self-Evaluations

    Well, that wasn’t the input I was looking for. Also, That’s a wordy reply to say that you don’t write much. Maybe someone else has something more concrete to share.

    Self-Evaluations

    Thought I'd reach out to the community and see what sort of goals are being put down for the coming year. I'm not sure what goals I'll put down. Last year, it was to spend more time in my department (which thanks to Covid and turnover, that ended up being a daily necessity). Probably going to...

    2022 Vacation/Time Off Changes

    Effective April 2022 Biggest take away: you can post for vacation pay out for up to 40 regular hours worked (so if you’re scheduled a holiday, but your total worked hours are less than 40 minus that holiday, you can ask for pay for the difference). Still can’t get pay out at end of year for...

    Pricing and Presentation We Need Shelves

    Our shelves go to the ceiling (when we have them). The only change was how we stored them. We used to hang a shelf, then put one upside on it before hanging another. This allowed you to store about 50% more shelves in a column. Now we're only allow to hang them, no stacking. Said it was a safety...

    Pricing and Presentation We Need Shelves

    They probably HAVE to expand or remodel as a budgetary requirement or risk paying more taxes or something related to the large influx of money they made over the past 2 years. Honestly, I think this would be a great time to cut back on full resets and just have fronts be the primary and rears...
