Yup, we were clearancing SO MUCH stuff out of the back. Partly stuff that never got restocked due to the "2 of each size" rule and no one ever having time to rework the backstock, but also in Mens/Performance/Wild Fable there was just so little room compared to the VMG in the first place, and the VMGs not calling for half the product we had on hand on top of it... entire size runs of stuff just ended up in the backroom their entire life cycle. It feels like a really shitty way to run things, especially since Flex and OPU don't look in the SL stockroom. And the stockroom was so full it was literally being hung from the ceiling, and there was honestly no way a TM could find an individual item without a lot of hardship.Yeah, ever since brand TMs stopped being a thing, TMs can't just move stuff around at my store especially since our TLs are usually working with the VM to do adjacencies. Mens is part of my zone and with the remodel we lost so many quads/convertibles that we have mountains of new mens clothes in the back, I just told the ETL about it and she said that she would try to find room for it next adjacency.
All I really can do is make sure my tables/racks are filled, but still shoppable.
