Love the second floor office! Much easier to see the team if you need to do paperwork, that would be cool. We have a similar old jewelry boat except ours is about twice the size, the biggest oval if you look at the jewelry vmg. We keep on getting bumped back on remodel schedule, I wish we could at least just get the new fixtures for style, that wouldn't require any actual construction workers.

A&A 2.0 remodels still require construction crews to come in a build the fixtures. Also take out your jewelry boat.

True. We keep getting bumped back (supposedly) because we're a super with full grocery and they're reluctant to remodel that down to the pfresh type when we're still posting good numbers.

Love doing the Remodels, challenging and exciting; my last one was intense but smooth and quiet. The company is always changing. Beauty Blowout is now considered “old” and one of the next remodel assignments I have has the newest Beauty Layout, which is exciting.

Tech also has some newness coming along, super excited if I get to see one of those this year.

Be prepped for guests asking “where did you move this” in areas that haven’t been touched.

Payroll wise, store and remodel payroll is separate. The only thing I know is that if your store decides to go “crazy” with remodel payroll, it’s not good and the store has to pay for it.

All stores I’ve done were Next Gen, HL Wrap layouts, corners. They’re also doing away with corners, kitchen corner isn’t a money maker, neither is stationery, heard Seasonal corners are really the only one where it’s beneficial.

No second floor offices here. Being on this forum has shown me how small my store really is, lol.

Our jewelry boat is about the size of @FrontEndBitch 's, and to me they are such a waste of space. There is nothing we carry that is so expensive that it needs to be locked up. Maybe at one time Target wanted to seem like they carried expensive jewelry? I'm not sure, but the time has long passed that a jewelry counter is necessary, and it sucks that stores have to wait for a remodel to get rid of them.

I’m super excited we’re getting brand new everything!

We’re one of the oldest stores in our district

Ages ago we actually carried real gold! The store I built about 17 years ago had real gold and some semi precious stones, we sold and changed watch bands and batteries as well. We had a specialist for the boat that also ran accessories.

People come in all the time and ask about getting watch batteries replaced and said how they came in last month and got it done 😂😂

Ahh, I figured it had to be more functional back in the day, lol. Once the company got away from gold and gems, they should've dismantled all the counters. Ours has three-tiers full of crap and fixturing behind it - it's an eyesore. Maybe one of these days I will go clean it out and liberate those three-tiers, lol.

I mean we have basement offices if that counts, lol.
Weird! Both stores I've worked at all of the offices are just at the front of the store! We're a 2 entrance super. Left side is general merch entrance with guest service immediately to the right, SD office directly behind it. All of the rest of the offices including breakroom, tmsc, even the candy/front lanes stockroom are all between there and the grocery side door. But the oldest store in town (VERY early in the number system) has the offices all the way in the back behind their fitting room.

Our store is in the basement of a shopping center, and we have a set of stairs in the backroom that leads downstairs to TSC. It’s also where the break room is, as well as all of the leads offices

What kind of newness for tech?

I am not surprised at all that the kitchen corner and stationary corners flopped. Buying in those departments, you're looking for specific things, not a bunch of visual adjacency nonsense. Some departments, it's fine to have VMG stuff. Home, along with bedding and bath tables it makes sense. All of style as well.

But *stationary*? Why they thought a stationary corner was ever a good idea is beyond me.

I hope this is a signal that they're toning down some of the visual crap.

Tech remodel just gets a bunch of discovery tables and open up the area like all remodeled areas. Lowered walls, more interactive displays. Carpets and a seating/bar area for market source or mobile plus guests.

Yeah some stores already got it when they got A&A 2.0 or home innovation or some other smaller remodel. Most stores that already have it, got it because they’re not getting a full remodel.

Yeah my store got it years ago because we weren't getting a full remodel back then.
