Looking for the SAP order number for the aisle number sign. Where it says G32. Searched Go Kart they only had white aisle signs. Thanks.
I just ordered a ton of gray numbering. I can get you the specific numbers Friday but if you just search “g1-99” or any section letter it should pop up. You’ll get white and gray both horizontal and vertical numbers. They’re all there.

have the white numbers always existed? i mysupported this a few months ago asking about it because a grocery team lead wanted to know if we could get white numbers vs the grey numbers for the grey headers in grocery and mysupport told me they didn't exist lol.

They exist. They’re used in small formats. We had red headers with white letters and just got new white headers with gray letters. I’ve ordered both on GoCart before.

Who's bright idea was it to have a mini patio flat (2 tables, bench, 8 chairs, 5x7 rug) in a 4x10 section?!?!

It's leaving maybe 2-3ft of walking space between aisles because pushing in chairs is very difficult for guests it seems.

They could have at least mention there would be displays in entertaining so I would have left more footage space, but too late.

They are basically turning the VM position into signing as well now. They are becoming responsible for more of the non-pog ISM. My VM relies on me for a lot of assistance, but he's going to need to figure this out for himself as I am very busy with presentation stuff now.

Anybody's vm actually doing the non-pog signing? Overheads or CSEs. I had my signing/entertainment guy do it.

Mine is doing it! We agreed I would "assist" him for awhile until he's done the CSEs a few times but all I do is hand him the panels to put up- he hangs it himself. Hanging the new swim CSE last week was definitely a two-person job though since our "temporary" OPU space is now permanent and he has to navigate around it. He's trying, he doesn't like it but he's doing it.

I've been doing all the CSE and OHs as VM. Its fine. The only thing is when they come in and critique like, one pair of pants that aren't hung properly.... or a hurdle that isn't 100% sized... in January, when everyone is scheduled 5 hrs. Like, I would love to follow up with tms, or help them out.... but when no one's here, or I'm up on the wave...??? How does that work?

And they want CB1 filled, and Home decor perfect, and whatever else.

I basically just say. Yup, working on it. Or yup, we have a plan for that. Cause what can I really do? Lol.

Sooooo I'm back for a bit.. I've been tasked to clean our fixture room. I already told my SD we're not following the 8 foot rule. We're going through toys, infant, beauty + cosmetic reset. There's no way I'm palletizing that.

lmao if they make me stick to the 8 foot rule i'm gonna LOSE it. i read on the addendum that they have to take pics as "proof", though, so i'm afraid they'll push me on it.

I can fake it right now, get the pic taken, then do what actually makes sense for me after. Told my VM I'm the one who has to use those shelves above 8ft anyway and I am Wave trained so its really not a big deal for me put them up or get them down. And we absolutely DO NOT have space to store multiple pallets of shelves.

How are you guys storing your side caps? Right now they're on a shelf with a black crossbar to stop them from falling. It's been working but it takes up so much space

There is literally no space for "nothing over 8"
My SD and etl came to an agreement of 10ft. We were able to save two pallets of shelving this way and you can barley tell the difference. My last issue is the style crossbars. If I can remove these from the shelving wall, that'll solve all my issues

If you come up with a solution to this, let me know!

If we’re thinking of the same thing my old store did one flat cross bar all the way across the bottom in each section so like 4-5 bars and each section put 2 of those softlines outpost things and hang all the style bars on those. You can fit 15-20 per bar and they don’t take up a ton of room. Also if you have some blank wall that doesn’t have and spines or anything for shelves you can just I’ve your PML screw in some long hooks or something to hang them. How do you store them? Do you have them all in the shelf spines?

Ours are stored underneath the softlines shelves in the fixture room. Not really in my way since it's in their area but none of the softlines TMs can use the Wave so they can't stow their own, always leave it for the VM or TL.
