Since the ground has started to thaw, the fire dept has become a regular at J's. Too bad they aren't here to shop...You see the shopping center is built on an old landfill. The methane alarm has been going off way too much lately. This is what i found one day when I arrived at work. Silly thing is, some of these people are customers waiting to get back into the store to shop!
Liquidation has been going well. The first 3 weeks we had record breaking sales. And that was with 20 and 30% off. The 4th week they changed it 30-40%. Still higher prices than a regular store. But people are buying this stuff like there is no tomorrow! We move stuff, only to move it back. Clear an area, only to fill it again....(job security) Currently we are working on measuring and taping up all fabric. Once that is done the cutting counter employees will no longer be needed. :( However last week they started training all of us on the registers. When our position is finished, the seasonal employees will be let go and we will take over their jobs.
Most of the Mgrs have moved on, several of the supervisors have moved on too. Funny thing is they all went to the same store.
