    Is this Real Life? (A Market vent thread)

    My store has them carrying forward on the 11/29 Entertaining salesplanner with the hormel trays. They are not fun to put together, though they sold well the first week and haven't since.

    What to do with all the Discontinued?

    This would make too much sense, but products on pogs that die or get replaced with a revision or transition should jump to clearance as soon as they're NOP if they haven't already

    DTL said the same for my district>store. In talking to TL over plano, we figured that it wouldn't happen and they'd go back to asking him to do it. Always interesting to see what they come up with that never works out.

    Chemical reset - Discussion/planning/tips

    My store has had two working on it, and I don't think either of them had much idea about plano at all. The PLUG DBO and the Chem 'DBO' (Backup receiver). It's been an absolute disaster, they've been slowly working on it for almost two weeks. GM2 TL was off last week for the biggest moves...

    I'm going in least going to the flagship store, would be interesting to know if I can just walk in and present id and TM card.

    That's what I was leaning towards and what i'm probably going to have to do. Working to make sure all the displays are present, audit out any missing, it's a big mess and was left pretty haphazard during the October transition. SD had me captain PLUG through fourth quarter, so it's my project...

    Working on streamlining the small appliance displays, and want to create a spreadsheet for each pog. Was hoping to be able to print the line listing like when you pull a pog up on the zebra (with the products AND displays), but it appears that it is no longer functional on Online Planogram. Is...

    1-for-1 Scannable Sheet. It's a Group effort.

    The Amp fillgroups were AGCS (Curiosity Shop), AGDE (Disney Eats), AGFZ (Frozen), AGHH (Home for the Holidays), AGKD (Key Destinations), and AGFS (Family Sleep). Other than Disney, Frozen, and Family Sleep, I never paid much attention to what products or which salesplanners constituted the others

    We used a couple of pink single use plastic tablecloths taped over the red plaid cover. It looks terrible and won't last

    Closing team

    Not to mention when CL is on lunch. Typically, there's only one TL left to cover, so that literally makes them the LOD. All this talk, for example, if you're a market TM you should go to your market TL..but what if they're not there, etc.

    Thanks! Will have to give it a try next time I do one with pegs.

    Planogram training

    How do you do it without guessing? If it's easily explained that is. I've seen some of those funky letter codes on the pog schematic which makes more sense when looking at the image above, but wouldn't be too sure where to start.

    I wonder if things might really change because of both of these BI articles. Considering Target is trying to garner positive press over Circle and the Good and Gather rollouts, this brings to light the issues we've been dealing with

    SD was shocked that revisions aren't getting done. A lot was pinned on a former GMTL but it's not all their fault. TMs have no idea or do it wrong. Even plano team tied a new reset for a 20' foot aisle and didn't bother to find the label strips. That was 4 days ago, and it's still not done. Even...

    Correct - had a guest ask about a Bialetti (the coffee brand) toaster because we had a model for it. Will check tonight and scan through the displays. Thanks.

    I've undertaken maintaining the PLUG aisles on the salesfloor, and what with the reset coming up (10/6 for my store at least), I have dozens of old displays for models we don't sell anymore or were never put onto the floor. Should these be tossed? Or defected out and wrapped up on a pallet?

    Absolutely. At my store we've condensed Bulk Plastics inside to one 2-sided stretch of the steel (in addition to a container outside). I can still see single bins and full boxes I backstocked months ago. No one pushes it beyond what comes off the truck, so it almost never moves.

    I ended up going to this store when I was in NY in March. The store was clean and well stocked. That being said, Target probably works to make Lower Manhattan stores appear pristine - this one even has a Chobani Yogurt Cafe. Obviously this works at a store of this size. In contrast, there are 20...
