Crazy couple of days!

I'm doing my first floor set with my new store and it's a HUGE move!

If you have never worked in retail before a "floor set" is when everything in the store moves around and you typically get lots of new merchandise in. Retailers tend to do new floor sets for the new seasons and it's nice because it gives you a chance to really do some hardcore cleaning and organizing. In my case some "Spring Cleaning!" =)

We started last night at 6pm and by midnight we should have had 50% of it done. Let me tell you, we did not. I left at midnight and two other girls stayed until 2:30 am. I was back at 7am and we tried to work on more today but it's next to impossible when you're open. Who wants to shop a store that looks like a tornado blew through it?

The entire move is supposed to be done by 10 am tomorrow morning and unfortunately I think I'm going to fail that test... it's just not going to happen. That's okay though, I want this to be quality moves and have a beautiful, ORGANIZED store when I'm done!!
