Repacks are highly dependent on available help, if you have help they're fine, get stuck doing a mountain of them by yourself and you will quickly hate life

Our AP has now decided that EVERY phone case and phone accessory now HAS to be keepered. Not breezing through those Zone 9 repacks. Oh, and AP thoughtfully ordered us multiple cases of keeper sizes we don't need to help us out.
I wonder if they realize the teams that go through our stores have the keys to all the keepers/cases we are only stopping the small time people the professionals we are only slowing down. in fact their we probably selling the cases to some other mom and pop store.

Keepers are asants, they stop basically all impulse theft and don't impact sales negatively as long as paying guests are able to select the keepered item from the hook, taken off at front end checkout. Depends on your theft risk tho, my store is very low risk and the lowest in our district by shrinkage numbers.

Ah. Fond memories of the original cardboard amplified gifting ‘fixtures’. The large stuffed animal one survived 18 hours before falling victim to the crown.
These are literally the same, except they're green. They suck ass. At least one is already falling apart from getting hit several times per hour.

Dunno why if it has to be cardboard why not the super thick triple wall shippers that pumpkins and melons come in. I hear those are rated for at least 200 Crown hits. But tbqh I'd prefer if they kept all that shit out of my aisles to begin with. Why not a fucking focal with the basket holders for the stuffed animals like they have the beach balls?

That thing sucks too.

Did anyone else get a new smaller one this year?

Did you just get like 2 casepacks of the balls, and the genius setting it saw 100% ready and put it up only to have it empty?

Do your local thots climb inside to have their friend take an Instagram video of them dancing in it?

Do you enjoy the show before telling them to knock it off? 😂

Maybe they're going to change it back once they've shed enough TMs?
I had hoped at one point that stores would be allowed to find their equilibrium and drift back to processes that clearly worked. Apparently that will not be the case given what I’ve read here in the last couple of days.

Otherwise known as stores with 10,000 hours of payroll per week

when someone says e2e works 100% and their store is always 100% clean 100% of the time that's how you know they're at a district store with magical fairyland levels of payroll
or they are sitting in corporate HQ or are part of a bot army to convince people that E2E is working. and that I would not put it passed Corp to trying to figure out who we all are then coming after us.

tinfoil hat is a bit tight today.
