anyone around for the vineyard vines launch today? i went in last night to do the signing because my etl panicked when they realized i wasn't going to be there, but the amount of signing i had took me about 20 minutes to complete (like they seriously could've done this themselves, it was that easy and that little) and i just spent the next couple hours doing my own stuff lol. managed to snag a free t-shirt, tho!

on another note, it always cracks me up when i'm putting up the easiest overheads like the whale overhead and my co-workers gape at me like i'm doing god's work.
Same! All I had to do this morning was hang the overhead and I also got a t-shirt out of the deal. Spent the rest of my short shift working on late pogs.

Had 1 guest waiting at open. Said she got there at 6AM. She said the other Spots in our area had long lines, campers from last night, and TV news camera crews at them.

I did not get a shirt 🤬, only got to do softlines tasks. But did get to leave early when we ran out of easy stuff...

From the June addendum, when we all change to Go Cart at the end of July-ish, "Only ETL's, PML's and AP team members will have access to place orders in Go Cart." So order, order, order! Write down all the hard to find numbers and kiss the ability to order goodbye!

Fuck me. I already have an extensive list of part numbers in a ring binder but I am not sharing that voluntarily. And I am ETL-less right now too. Time to call in favors with my PML, he owes me quite a bit!

Or, conversely, I'll just add ordering to the slowly growing list of "Shit SigningLady Doesn't Do Anymore." I've scaled back so much in the last couple weeks!

Only those people? So not the Store Director? ;)

My PML will refuse to order store things, as anything he orders comes out of his budget.

You know who I blame for this? VMs and their obsessive need to fucking order and hoard everything.

Let me know your size! We had extras yesterday. I can try to snag one for you tomorrow.
Lol, I unplugged all weekend and didn't even read here. Xl or xxl. Also mad there red/white lanyard wouldn't let me order it with $30 if other vine stuff in my cart. Sucked butt. I'm doubly annoyed now that I had to take down the whale today because nobody who asked me could be bothered. 🙄

I will see if I can find where the TL hid the shirts tomorrow and let you know.

No only can you not order but every store will be set a yearly budget and every order has to get approved by your DSD admin

Well, there goes any last remaining semblance of brand maintenance. Broken label strip holder? Just tape the strip in I guess! Old, yellow peghooks label fronts? Leave 'em, they ain't broke yet! Missing a fixture? Make it work.

totally put in a large order today for shit i know i'm going to run out of. i might start a similar binder that @SigningLady started w/ part numbers just so i have them in the future. i can't believe not even TLs can order? that just seems excessive and it feels a lot like something target is going to regret in the long run but what do i know, i've only been here a little over a year. smh, target.

Where does it say only ETLs, PMLs, AP can order in addendum? I only saw the budget part unless it's on another page I haven't seen.
