The thanksgiving OH goes to market power aisle. I have 2 entrance and still received the thanksgiving OH + 2set of OH for FOS
This

I originally put the Thanksgiving one up front but was told to move it to market and put Christmas in front of the door. We'll just have to listen to guests grumble about how "Putting Christmas up before Thanksgiving is even here is a crime "

My receiver just smiled at me when he saw I found the two new ones today. I get that sending bins pre-built saves us time, but it doesn't save us on precious space! And I would love to jump into setting all these just to clear them out of the backroom, but I am still knee deep in finishing loose ends in seasonal, finishing mini, and finishing home decor.
I claimed one of the containers out back for signing and divided it up into 12 sections (6 on each side). Each "location" gets it's own page. I wrote every single sign into a location so that people can find their stuff when they need it and I don't have to get calls every 10 seconds. I might setup something similar in the fixture room after the holidays, but with actual locations and scan them in, but I'm undecided. The fact that they've given me time to do this is a miracle, though, and I imagine not everyone is going to have that luxury.

So we had 15 pallets of mini to push

STL thought we had a truck today.

We did not.

Plano was just me and my PTL.

Ended up being us two and six inbound people doing the pallets.

Felt like I dodged a bullet.

I'm never able to open any attachments in mySupport. I received my tree lot hanging lights OH today DTS. I'll just plan on getting OHs up as they come in, not even sure what I am missing or not. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Why are there like four boxes for the fucking mini seasonal overheads

Why is this how they think things should be done

Anyone know the part number for the metal piece that hold up the inline headers in electronics? I have signs but none of the clips/brackets. Maybe @SigningLady ?

I just sort the pallets. I really don't like that things are coming in label amp gifting with a rear seasonal label on it. I gave team ahead up about the dual labels then this week we get things with amp labels the the VM tells me isn't for them. They maybe needed in seasonal on counters that are already set and stocked. Just so productive HQ.

Perhaps I am just blind, but I can't find where to find the store-specific holiday hours. The instructions say to go to Workbench>Tools>4th Quarter Planing but to my knowledge (limited as it may be) Tools doesn't exist. Used a varying degree of search terms in Search to no avail. Also tells me to consult the STL for details. I feel that they just copied/paste the same text from last year. My SD didn't have any clue where to find it and told me that she would get back to me with details later. I feel like I won't get any help from that route, so could anyone tell me where to find this elusive store-specific hours?


EDIT: SO my PML took to Yammer and apparently the page doesn't exist yet. Should be up by next week.

The only store specific hours are for blue state laws and small formats. If you’re not on that list you follow the standard hours
