CANADA A DISASTER!!
I made a trip to Vancouver Island and visited both Targ stores in Victoria and the one in Nanaimo yesterday and today. I cant believe the emptiness and that each was in a state of redville. And I thought the Vancouver stores were bad. Out of stocks were rampant and store conditions were deplorable (is there a way to attach pictures to this site?). I talked to TM’s and a TL and their response was it was busy last weekend and they hadn’t been able to recover or fill the shelves. You have to wonder if this is poor strategic planning (was it a surprise we had a Labor Day Weekend that is always one of the busiest weekends of the year), lousy levels of distribution replenishing sales or a lack of TMs to do what is needed to be done. This was EMBARRASSING to say the least – customers (oops… guests..) were laughing or speaking extremely critically of the stores! All leadership is off to Minneapolis for the annual waste of time and money meetings this week – cant wait to hear the propaganda. There is no chance this sinking ship can turn fast enough to save the foray into Canada. Yet another striking example of useless leadership up to and beyond the group level. buh bye tarshit!
