Time for a mega-thread resurrection  cool

I've worked at a BBB for a couple years now. There is a real 'family' element to the staff. We all have each other's backs. Managers...not so much, but thats a whole 'nother issue  Grin

Recently we have begin beta testing of a new club, Beyond Plus. Basically, for a nominal charge (29 dollars either monthly or yearly) you get a 20% off everything coupon monthly. These are rare and can save you a ton. We are really trying to go paperless with our coupons, which is silly because our main demographic is older women who aren't so 'technical.'

I work at a very large BBB, which has its own Harmons Face Values department, which we bought out a couple years ago, and a Fine China/Registry department, which handles Wedding and Gift Registry. This accounts for a large chunk of our business.

Most of the other stores are very small. Cheektowaga store #140 is maybe half of the size of mine (Clarence #1059) and much older. Amherst #632 is brand new but still small. Neither has a Harmons section, but Amherst has a registry department.

We are pretty good with shrink. McKinley seems to get hit the most because it opens into the mall, so people can "grab and go" very easily. You wouldn't believe some of the security reports we get.

I'm pleased to work there, but I wonder if we won't start seeing a decline in business. Seems like some of the programs we are trying make us more desperate for customers (Beyond Plus is really strange).

The one where I live (Southington, CT) shares the former AMES (originally Zayre) with Bob's Discount Furniture is really small. It's under 23,000 square feet. You can see a picture of the store on the landlord's website.

The one in Simsbury, CT is just over 30,000 square feet.

Closest one to me is in Lisbon, CT, it's a small location. There's also one in Dayville, CT, a bit larger there...

Most of our shrink comes from sheets, with makeup and small kitchen gadgets not far behind. We lost something like 12 grand from sheets and bedding alone.

We also seem to be bringing in a lot more electronic toys and things than we had in the past. These are big targets for thrives.

Here's a photo of the Lisbon, CT location

Dayville is my second closest, and I'll be there today.

Nice photo, but it's not Bed Bath & Beyond.

That's what I get for not paying attention.
Anyways, I'll edit this post when I upload my Dayville photos in a hour or so
Nevermind, they turned out blurry thanks to the rain.

We've rolled out a new merchandise line, called "the Grainhouse." Lots of country-themed stuff with fake wood and soft pastel colors. It looks very nice and has started to sell well since we brought it in one week ago.

Also, I was wrong with my earlier post. Amherst #532 actually opened in 1995. Cheektowaga #140 opened in the mall at an earlier date, then moved to their present location in 2011, according to our employee website.
