Get rid of ALL Christmas signing on the 24th to be ready for the 26th.
My store has already set and filled mini! Woo!
How the hell is that even possible? My store still has some stuff from mini in the backroom, let alone having it all condensed into rear! We've been trying too...the whole Plano team (except for me, I get dumped to Hardlines/Electronics when Plano hours are this low) has been working on condensing and organizing Seasonal and Toys as much as possible. Unfortunately, sales floor coverage is so light that we never have time to work on it during the day and help them, so pretty much after 11, our focus is solely on pulls since it takes us the whole hour to complete them before new ones drop. The idea of even doing something like a midday zone is a very rare occurance.
Our PTL and her team are awesome. They're a bunch of hard-working people and deserve more pay and recognition than what they get. They always seem to have the next sets for mini and seasonal done at least a week-if not more before Target's deadlines.
Honestly, if they're getting done a week or more before the set date, then some of their work is getting shifted over to flow because the flow team has to stock the stuff that comes in after POG sets it, but before the actual set date. Some stores don't have an issue with that and there are times that happens at my store. For my district, setting anything earlier than maybe the Wednesday before is a big mistake unless the POGs are green. Our DTL reams us if aisles for new sets are light on product. And coming soon signs...simply not allowed lol.
Takedown for Christmas Signing doesn't start till the 26th. You have the rest of the week to complete it. See the Monthly Signing Update for more details on takedown.
Mini-Seasonal sets 12/26 so that needs to be ready to go...going to be a fun day setting POGs around the crazy day-after-Christmas shoppers...
