My store is as old as it gets, we have had our remodel pushed back for a decade now. The only real difficulty I'm having is half the cameras we.dont get anymore, and we have electronics pogs on the back wall that extend beyond the electronics area. I am also agressivly marking down nop mobile accessories that got really out of hand.

......i can tell you many things about it. And how to fix the many issues. Feel free to pm me

But hint? Have AP start stashing lockibg cabinets, and figure out what you're strategy is to deal with losing all your space at the boat. We have 1 bathroom sink sized cabinent. Choose wisely.
We have a rolling cart for all Ap supplies already that we use with excess so we kinda have that covered ahead of time at most that cabinet will probably just be for the bare necessities. We already have excess cabinets then what we truly need now we are I believe 5+ over what we are suppose to be allotted. Since we still use MarketSource I can hear their cry’s now that there’s no room for the amount of junk they have on their side that they don’t need or use.

Still surpassing sales even with a clueless ETL. We are almost at a TV shortage again lol. We always able to come clean on all work daily & including 1K in audits daily so it be nice for them to not send the same product on almost every truck by the dozens when it doesn’t sell through that fast & our backroom Waco’s show it.

They are shifting so many hours to the overnight team that there’s barely anyone on the floor all day when guests need help they expect 1 or 2 to run the whole floor and do backup/reshop & help with opu/ship with bare minimum hours

Anyone else have the apple resellers coming in now with legit looking tm discount cards that match their ID? So sick of dealing with them.

Can’t wait till they try that at my store. They know how strict we are with it. One time they literally had 2 car loads according to our Ap of people & were hunting down non Tech Tms to help them with their Apple products. It was a hilarious shift for sure.

So you don’t even limit them? We limit one item per person per day. The frustrating thing is that now with the matching discount cards we can’t remove the fraudulent tm discount. It would be nice if corporate gave us a discount verification app where we could scan the card and see if the name actually matches in the system.

Our Etl and stl won't let us we've had it as a known issue for a while now especially since they definitely don't work for target considering they don't even speak English.

Our TLs have been reporting the TM number though
