    we unlocated and deleted all the bakery locations in the freezer. the backroom TL asked how is this supposed to work and the answer is we challenge freezer everyday now. so were unlocating and deleting all the locations for dairy and freezer, and pushing to the floor daily. sounds fine except whos going to do this? when you write a schedule that is 1 tm ALONE for 2 hours to open, and has to pull all the autos ... yuck! it likely works in a higher volume store, but lower volume, less payroll, your killing your TMs.
    sad thing is now i cant find anything that start for as much as theyre paying me now ... well ... that'll hire me ...

    One time we got a TON of Wal-Mart's milk and some genius actually stocked it on the shelves. It was around Black Friday or the big Back to College event, so Starbucks needed milk and I had to grab the Highland stuff because we literally ran out of Market Pantry milk.

    I wouldn't even mind if they would at least put it on a separate pallet. Instead we get a few boxes each with meat, dairy, produce.

    signingminion WAVing in the air like I just don't care

    60k weekdays is ultra low or low volume... not sure the cutoffs but we are 80k most days 120k weekends and org chart 3...

    I'm hoping we get that new table. We are perpetually short shelves and can't order more, nor have we been able since right after we opened...

    Pfresh store TMs - any advice regarding routines to keep your bakery table looking brand? Ours was blown out as hell today, so I locu'd the open stock, printed off labels, pushed everything I could, and backstocked the rest. That worked well enough, but I had holes the open stock didn't fill, so I ended up manually scanning the shelf labels and memorizing backroom locations for the case stock, which is not really optimal. I really need to start carrying a note pad. The table looked nice, I just figure there must be a more organized/efficient way to do this, or a routine to set up so the table doesn't end up looking barren in the first place.

    Super, not Pfresh, but the TMs who fill the bakery tables write down everything they need on a notepad and grab everything in 1-2 trips into the freezer. This is once daily and the tables still look barren sometimes when it's a high traffic day. The bakery/deli/sushi freezer is also unlocated, so it means less time in the freezer. It helps that the freezer stays organized, so if you have people who just randomly choose places to backstock the items, unlocating everything won't help. The random stray box of stuff is found once a quarter when food inventory happens, but it's never more than a box or two.

    Our freezer is split up by fillgroup, so all of the bakery stuff will be together in the same few sections. It's just a matter of going in there and opening boxes to see what we have.

    If you're going to be scanning shelf labels, you could do it with a myDevice and create a batch for anything that has locations. Then the batch will take you to each location and you can decide if you want to pull it or burn it.

    Thanks for the answers! It sounds like I need to learn how to create a batch with the myDevice.

    For the bakery table I usually do a needs fill for that POG and after that I do a batch for anything that doesn't pull. And then of course sometimes you have to go on a scavenger hunt because the counts are wrong and you gotta find those 30 French breads

    We do not back stock any bakery we have 1 metro and 1 tub of bakery in the freezer which we push at least once a day if not twice. We keep all loose bakery in the box. Breakfast & cookies on one cart and kings Hawaiian & bread on the other

    Go under research or manage inventory/pog fill on the red screen. Close the batch on 2nd screen, Grab a PDA to pull batch under work batches. Under research or exf.
