Not sure if they’re set the same everywhere but we have them front and back. The sidecaps on the front are on the left and the ones on the back are on the right so they’re on the same valley. The side caps only go on the side where the base decks stick out a little more on the left or right. Some of them have just the new header and not the side cap.
Thanks, one more question. Do in-aisle baskets have specific locations? Not sure if I saw that in the adjacency map or not.

They are tied to specific ECs. The top of the SPL will say something like “place basket in aisle near this spl” or something. If you look up the grocery fixture rollout guide it shows an example of what it looks like.

I went to a nearby Target this weekend.

Jesus christ what a shitfest. I saw numerous moveable walls that were somehow missing pieces. They had the grey endcap headers, so much outdated signage, including numerous Christmas backer papers, and the old style Card aisles actually had lighting falling apart. Clearly their POG team doesn't update things, because the WiFi adapter POG aisle had POG labels for headphones.

And it's clear there's no zoning being done.

It was a shitshow.

Why is it the pog team's fault?? There is no pog team is there? I suppose any signing that is messed up is the signing specialists fault too.

I am so sick and tired of not being able to order stuff off of SAP/GoCart.

If the SD has to approve all orders, why TF does it matter what my position is?

So many things are not being ordered and we are running out. My TMs come to me to complain about it. And I’m like I can’t order stuff anymore. Go talk to “ETL” and have them order it.

They have enough on their plate. I’m sure they can remember a TM telling them they need X when said TM probably doesn’t even know the part number.

Then they come back to find me to ask me what it is. If I don’t have my book or the POG, then I need to look it up!

Just give me access back already. And the position. And the pay grade. And my pay.

Also, this position is pointless with the way GM is going. I sort the pallets by area and put the signing in to the dedicated spaces for their areas.

Most of the time they don’t get touched. I’m running out of room. I spend more time removing outdated signing and taking it to the baler/compactor. When we still had a Plano team, our signing and POGs got done. Our store and processes were 👍.

Yup, our signing, POGs and especially pricing were on point. Pricing has fallen way off, I don't know who is supposed to be doing it but Style has unactivated and unmarked clearance everywhere. Hardlines seems to be struggling too, with the amount of salvage I keep finding.

Are the "official" signs about returns on air mattresses orderable? We're down to one "real" one and the store-made ones were noticed during a visit and taken down.
