I don't know if it's just me but I notice mysupport is on their "A" game lately. They've been ordering stuff that I've been missing or can't find part #s for and it gets here within a few days or week.

These stupid directionals....36" wires don't fit. Wtf?
I ended up using 12" and 18" or maybe it was 18" and 24". Can't remember from this morning, lol. Those bone arms are cute but they were a pain! Especially with those barb strings added in too. Can't they make the metal part a bit longer so they don't constantly fall out while I'm trying to hang?

No one in my store knew about the focal toppers until I asked them why they didn’t use them.... I showed them the picture someone posted earlier and they were all fasinated. They then “couldn’t find them” so I took a peak and the first box I see says “seasonal focal topper retro fit”

I'm about to put up directionals as well...What do you mean by "don't fit!? " I was able to put mine up with the 12" and 24" wires with a little finagling, but I did it!
What height ceiling? I'm 14ft.

Amruth hates me.... thankfully grainger and office depot do not. Overnight shipping ftw.

Instructions were not like the lantern/chain set up where you tear according to ceiling heights. I kept the length of the skeleton bone as is and the instructions also stated bottom of the sign to the floor is supposed to be 8'. Unless that rule doesn't apply anymore?

Should still apply. I used that rule to hang my directionals too.

It would have been nice if the POG had called for those shelves instead of saying "fixture unknown". We set shelves in the top notch after like 30min of staring at the POGs and label strips in confusion. Fairly sure the boxes we got just said "focal shelf" or something and for some reason they got put with the roller shelves we received for the vitamin aisle reset.

Ours didn't have the ISM label on them, just the stuff the manufacturer put on. It's a shame they didn't bother putting the actual fixture on the POG or we wouldn't have wasted so much time setting it with shelves then having to redo it. The saddest part is that it actually probably looked better with the shelves the way we had it set up, we had to add dividers to the topper shelves since the stuff on the front and sides is different price points and because the shelf is so tiny it all gets pushed together.

Who looks at the seasonal visual adjacency at your store? It showed the topper and where it would go.

Also the transition notes included the info on the topper although it says to follow the pog and gives you a fixture number but that doesn’t exist and when you scan the topper it comes up with a foxture number Ax0000 and no pogs.

I think my PPTL assumed it was a cardboard or plastic buildout, which our STL doesn't allow us to use so we would have had to use the normal shelves anyway. She tends to not look at visual anything since that she feels that falls under the VMTM (who doesn't really do much except dust the Hearth and Hand aisle at our store).
