Saw this on twitter and had to share... idk what store but this is so nice and I’m very jealous
I see they are following the "don't stack shelves higher than 8ft" that I saw on the info for the refresh. Hate to think about how many pallets of shelves they need to store because of that. 🙄 And we store ours differently, one up, locked in, the other flipped on top of it.

Love their many boxes of clearance stickers, looks to be about how much we have too.

I feel like this makes my fixture room look bigger. Ours is similar but we have a whole other side of light duty. And where is the printer/computer? Also, no softlines shelves or fixtures/bars??

that's how we store our shelves too! i don't even want to think about how many shelves we're going to have up in the steel taking up space once this refresh kicks off because our entire wall is LINED top to bottom with shelves.

and if this store is anything like my store, softlines has their own fixture room.

I would love it if our softlines had their own room! Then my VM could stop passively complaining about any messes from GM/Plano but never actually helping keep the entire room clean.

Herein lies corporate's utter refusal to accept the fact that "not all stores have enormous fixture rooms". Or even "big" ones. Or even "medium" ones.

YES! Complain but do nothing about it is right ! Softlines should have their own ! Stay out of ours and STOP your whining !

I wish this too since softlines is the one trashing our fixture room.... I watched a SL TL and the VM just dump amplified gifting fixtures and regular shelves on the floor today...

OMG, this makes me want to weep for the travesty that is our fixture room. And the thought of Softlines having their own? Yes, yes, a thousand times YES, and please give ME the hours to maintain it.
I've yet to see any hours to maintain the fixture room as stated in the addendum. I would never touch if except that as a presentation tm, we use it more than anyone else. So, if it becomes a disaster, it effects us more than someone in Starbucks. The maintenance falls disproportionately on us.

We kicked Softlines out. They now keep their crap in the back of the training room.
Then what happens when HR has to lead an orientation or host a district meeting/training? This is the problem I’ve been dealing with ever since AMP became a thing.. They’ve completely taken over the room and now I have to scramble to clean it for district meetings. 😒

Every store should be getting them for the patio set this year. Supposedly they’ll be used year round for something. The pictures in the addendum looked like the old ones so I wasn’t hopeful but if they’re actually that much better I’m excited

They are a lot better. More sturdy. The back of the c rail is like the bars with holes we use for the hanging patio furniture. Then the dividers plug right into the holes. The dividers aren't constantly sliding and the c rail doesn't feel like its going to fall apart.

Ok, I'll check the addendum tomorrow. I remember reading they'd be used year round too and didn't see how that was possible. Excited to be able to toss all my old c-rails!!

I can imagine that if they work well for patio, that the next home reset, they get more to go on area rugs.

I do want a pic tho.

Same upper top piece, not surprising

The dividers are great and should absolutely go on area rugs.

Oooh, those dividers look kinda flimsy. I don't think they'll stand up to too many umbrellas/rugs being shoved in very well.

I never said it’s maintained. Lol. Their fixture room looks like shit 24/7. It’s a dump.

We have a divider wall and each side has its own door.
