I'm curious to hear how the other stores with Ulta are going now that it's been almost two months and things have had a chance to settle. Our issues have been pretty typical Target ones, missing ISM, people messing up counts, not having enough bodies for coverage, guests being goblins and opening things. Anyone else's drawers absolutely suck balls?

So strange because my store is the biggest in the state but in our remodel we didn’t get the Ulta or the Apple Store. They redid all of them though, we got electronics 2.0. I don’t know exactly what the code name for my stores beauty is but it looks like a Sephora lol.

Probably beauty blowout 2.0. Ulta remodels are based on a lot of factors, apparently.

Repacks are pretty dumb, on the truck there's usually one or two items inside these repacks making it very likely to get crushed by heavier boxes or thrown off the conveyor belt during the unload

Yeah I don’t know the code name but it looks very much like a beauty store. There are basically isles within isles with tables and stuff. Really cool for guests. Have no idea how beauty is doing mentally though LOL

If your store is anything like 95% of the ones in north Texas, then there is already an Ulta right next to your store so it wouldn't make sense. I only know of one or two in my area that got the Ulta remodel

Anyone who doesn't have an Ulta keep getting a bunch of Ulta products in their repacks though? I don't know if I should hold onto them for holiday or go ahead and put some of them out.

We have. At first I was just finding a spot to get rid of them. Now we have so many I wouldn't be shocked if there was a POG for holiday. Maybe even the beacon since it's so many gift sets.

You must be in a big city. I never even heard of Ulta until we got one.
About 30,000 people, but just a little bit outside the metropolitan area of a major city.

I keep getting SSZ 2 repacks that are supposed to be just Ulta with other random shit thrown in - kitchen, clothing, accessories. I don't know why the DCs can't keep things straight. Ask your reverse logistics TM about sweeping them back. Probably should mySupport it too. Failing all that, defect them as ESIM and donate them, I guess.

I don't know what's worse - getting crushed tiny repacks with one item in them, getting a full uboat of pristine full size repacks with three items in each of them, or the full size repacks they sent in advance that were overflowing with thousands of, like, 5 nearly identical shades of lipstick or concealer or eyeliner, packaging crushed just enough to look bad, that I spent entire shifts for 2-3 weeks painstakingly sorting out so I could backstock them. You'd think the last one is the worst but sitting on the floor of a backroom aisle (secretly listening to a podcast) for 8 hours while making stacks of lipstick is almost meditative. Doing it for weeks kind of canceled out any calm it generated though.
