I'm hearing that other stores in the area are allowing vendors to pull skids to the floor without them being on flats when the store is open. Any other stores out there allow this?
We load the skids on the flats for them and they take it out that way. I really don't understand how that's any different than pulling the skid out.
I think it's BS too. I've had to move them after they were put on the flats and they are really heavy to move especially on the nasty flats we have. It's a pain to have to load the skids up for each vendor too. I realize that there's no easy way to do it but it's a lot of wasted time and energy. I knew better but was hoping we didn't get the memo!
We are a 7:30 unload store too. There pallets and jacks and skids and crap everywhere. Interesting how one store can say no because of safety and branding but another store gets told they can have them on the floor until noon. I guess Target feels our guests don't deserve the same treatment as the ones at other stores. If our store didn't have a group of 30 to 40 walkers in the morning, maybe it wouldn't be so bad.
