    Yeah, there's so many boxes you might as well just build it all on the floor. Doesn't look like it'd be transportable after the fact.

    Agreed. However I would probably trade the 15 Pallets of Pushers I received today for it.

    There are three possible fixtures. Everybody gets two, twelve stores get a third. No passes for you... lol.

    I've got the smaller fixture and a special project to handle tomorrow. Hoping to leave before lunch.

    Nope, I get a pass on this one. I haven't received any boxes for it, no POG for it in our workload. And now that I've said it out loud, I am going to cross my fingers I haven't just jinxed myself!

    I'm betting city stores or weird format stores might not... otherwise I hate you. Lol.

    Are they like 9 feet tall with long boxes the length of the pallet?

    No, those aren't in yet, except 4 random boxes that came in with some of our regular pushers, and another that came in 8 months ago, that confused the shit out of me, and some other Signing guy was poorly missing (Along with like 20 of the Grates).

    That said, I expect them Sunday.

    Lol. Just a regular suburban pfresh over here. Sorry! You know if I had to build it too I'd be complaining just as much as the rest of you.

    Yeah it was very difficult to transport. It took flatbeds and three people to move it, which I had to do since the store was open and I couldn't take up the whole Accessories floorpad with guests shopping. All in all it took about ten hours including moving it. Although, I'm sure a veteran could've done it faster. A bunch of the plastic screws I got didn't seem to be threaded right. I don't have fingerprints anymore.

    Oops...We got just one pallet of those today and we didn't know what they were for and nobody else seemed to know.

    So since nobody would own up to ordering them, the bulk backroom TM put them up in the steel in the fixture room.

    He's in for a surprise if we get 14 more pallets tomorrow...

    My Pallets have annoyingly been trickling in, (up to 4) so we are setting our revisions by whatever the fuck fixtures show up that morning which... with how big Market POG's are quite fucking annoying... so we are setting our revisions by whatever the fuck fixtures show up that morning which... with how big Market POG's are quite fucking annoying.

    No. just was pondering the thought of one us missing ~30 of those Cheese Grate's for the pushers about 8 months ago (literally 8 months ago), when some mysteriously showed up on one of my signing Pallets.

    Oh yeah just putting the table and freestanding fixture sucked. I think we spent a total of 8 hours putting it together, and the projected time was 4 so that's just way off. Those big white viking screws don't secure very well, hoping they don't go anywhere since it's all supposed to last through Father's Day? Yikes.

    The overhead ribbon is complicated but once you figure out how to put it together it'll go by faster. I think I would have just built the two halves, hung those separately and then joined them in the air with the wave looking back on it. It's kind of heavy and difficult to maneuver if you build the entire thing before hanging. There is a LOT of tension on those hanging cables because of swoop they want the ribbons to have.
