Anyone know what the 3/10 cloud island shipper is for? Cant find the pog for it.
Crap. I forgot all about that. Was due this week and I'm off tomorrow. I couldn't find the pog for it either and I had set it aside to ask around, but got pulled 10 other directions throughout the week. Oh well.

Of course ASANTS, but doesn't your store have Stationary transition next week? We are completely moving all aisles but 1! New fixtures and everything. Huge moves! And you're not involved with locating and organizing the signing pallets?! That's just messed up! Until we are told we are completely disolved (Presentation Team/Signing Tm) we are still business as usual. Someone has to do the work! I would love for anyone else to step into our shoes right now but no one wants to step up to the plate. So, we keep plugging along till someone tells us to stop.
I’m doing mine without any presentation team help. I’ll let you guys know how it goes, but I’m not worried. Planned it out more than the presentation TL would have lol

My pog team does that half the time🤷‍♀️
I do it occasionally but at the end of the day as long as your labels are put in order I don’t care that much. The one reverse standard thing I messed up on was I’ve printed my labels before tying it in reverse so my labels were all messed up and I couldn’t figure out why for a second...

It's fine until you have a revision for an aisle like boys action. Maybe half the pegs change. It can be a real pain. Add in that what should be set in a certain way isn't.

It always confuses the heck out of my inbound team if the label strips are one direction and the pegs count the opposite. 🤦‍♀️

I'll usually fix it if I catch it but sometimes it's brought to my attention after the fact and I forget to fix it. It's funny how much it trips people up just counting right justified.
Right? Especially since it's not perfectly in order anyway... just look for the right location, lol.

I have almost nothing for stationary. I got two new posterboard fixtures, and two other fixtures from that section along with them... all of which are still brand new from last year. Otherwise the signing I've gotten is like, a 6x18 and a shelftalker and thats it.

Just remembered, got a handful of other fixtures for it, a extra basedeck fixture for writing utensils and some dividers, some clear front railings, a nine inch white bar for bags or something else. But almost no signing at all.

Nope. Hardly any new signing.

Only have Art 1, 2, 3, and 4 left to set since we started setting last week. Going pretty smoothly and I'm really enjoying taking the clearance out of inline and salvaging it immediately. So nice not to have to deal with it on endcaps.

Now if OTC next month could set just as nice that would be fantastic! 🤞
