Who's building grills at your store? PML said their not responsible to build anymore but he'll try to help. Presentation is busy as it is, like damn Target cut us some slack! I know our TLs won't do it.
Direction from HQ is that store team is to build all displays, including grill displays. No PML involvement. I will probably end up building everything, like every year.

Does anyone here know how to report CEVA delivering the wrong signing pallet? Our entire pallet was meant for a different store (the wrap has our store number on it, but the packing slip for the pallet says the other store's number.) I could not figure out how to mySupport it and asked a leader to reach out to the other stores to see if we can find our pallet as it contained parts to swap out they heyday focal...

Not sure if this is your area but 3 POGs/Aisle for toy transitions are not calling for strips when it should. POG says to print the labels when there are lots of shelves. Pain in the arse to set individual labels. I can try to mysupport but we would be done by the time it gets fixed. Specifically the one for Barbies, Core activities, and Craft activities.

When it happened to us, I called the other store to let them we had it just as a courtesy.
Then worked with receiving to make sure it was shipped back under the right catagory so it wouldn't sit in for long before being shipped to them.
I can't remember what the catagory for the message to my support is but it took some searching.
This was years ago so I'm sorry I can't remember.
Just saying it does exist.
But I'm pretty sure it will matter more if the other store that got your stuff makes any effort to fix the problem.
Some are less attentive than others.

They already sent the new labels last week. We are moving into beauty tomorrow
"WE", your store must still have a POG team? we is specialty setting beauty. we are trying to set a week out, but due to weather and added truck we are starting a day late! At least with starting early if you fall behind, you don't "really" fall too far behind! lol 🤪

Yes we still have a pog team . Not to far behind in terms of stating current with workload however beauty freight is starting to come in so the sooner the better . I think my specialty Leader or etl would be losing their minds if they would have to do it .

Hmm... We got more toys strips but they are just duplicates/updated prices of what we already have. It didn't fix the issue I'm having with missing strips for certain POGs that calls for Print labels only.

I think they would have to change that particular POG from Print labels to Use shelf strips in order for the strips to come in.

But it's whatever now, we should be done with toys today.

Same at my store. We set without the strips but it seems like it took twice as long. Frustrating for sure.

Week 1 and plans are on track for set so far, but I feel like it's going to take us over a week to finish out setting cosmetics. The last 3 days we've been drowning in beauty freight. Covid cases are up too! I just had to close last night, lots of truck throughout, beauty has 5 u-boats now, o_O
