No hours for signing this week. So those two pallets of signing that came in last Saturday and Monday can go straight to the compactor. I'm not spending my time at Target watching my work build up while I do another job ... sfs. I'll gladly do whatever I'm scheduled. But I refuse to watch other work build up waiting for me. Let management hang it.

Does anyone have the part number for the 2 little white attachments to adhere the label holder to the fixture?
I'm pretty sure you have to order the pieces together with the label holder itself. I can look tomorrow for the part number for the entire kit.

Yes. We did. Read the packet for your store. For us we are supposed to use it for a future set. On the top of my head I don't remember what area just that the PMT does not have a work order to build it.

I believe the whole kit number is PR001. It's been awhile since I ordered these so I can't remember if you can order each piece separately as well.

honestly fuck that though
We ended up with 4 extra bookcases. PMT built them already so we are using them for extra flex space in some areas.

I agree 100%. It's been a nightmare with AMG this year and they included revamping Mini-Seasonal along with it! I think it's just too much work for crap that will not sell at full price. I've dubbed this set Amplified OMG 2.0! Anyone had fun with signing it? Sales floor is in charge of setting it and the signing specialist is having a hell of time putting up the signing that goes along with it. They have a captain heading up the project but they've already thrown her under the bus! It's just as bad as modernization and the new unload process.

The only issues I had with the amp signing were the shitty outrigger type ones. They don't go into the plastic holder well and are designed weakly. Everything else was pretty straight forward, just followed the pics in the VMG.

I hate that the the double sided tape that goes with the plastic holder is not the removeable type. I tried taking one off and it left half the tape intact. I guess I'd have to goo gone it after the holidays.

Whos ready for a story???


For the weekend deals under store communication, it says to remove blah blah the day the deal ends. Fucktards decided to toss the entire fucking fos stanchion. Both of them....
My store did that with the toy event stanchion after the first one. You know, the one that had written right on it "store offstage from this week until this week for the lol and paw patrol events next month." The one time someone decides to destroy their own trash instead of leaving it next to the baler like they always do... smh

Tape the big one to the metal stanchion. Or put in a plexi/metal base one. The new one is easier to read but too low to the ground.

All that's left is an empty metal stanchion. I don't care at this point. Definitely not my fault lol

Edit: to clarify, they tossed the Xmas fos that was attached to the metal stanchion.

Yup! We said, "F*ck It!" We have enough wires and ceiling clips so we are going to use it all! Looks good and I'm pretty sure no one will notice anyway. :confused::rolleyes:
I would have loved to have done that, but I made the mistake of asking first. I wanted to place the extras above the new Amp. Gifting area by Home and by RTW , thinking it would help call them out more. Was told no. So I put 6 in the power aisle and crushed the rest.

uhh.. what. this store i shopped at yesterday. there's a few things wrong with this tree set. could you spot them?

i feel this is what seasonal would look like next year if the signing/plano position disappears.

😂😂😂That power pole!!! 😂😂😂 The physics of how this tree can possibly be rotating is confusing me. Doesn't the cord catch on the branches? And wouldn't guests be able to reach up and pull on it?

Also really enjoy the ceiling tile in the background with a power pole cutout in it still. Classy.

I really shouldn't judge the tree too harshly, I have one that is only half lit because I haven't found the time or made the effort to get all the cords plugged in together.
