    It's more enjoyable to shop there. Never buy an item not on sale: Get a coupon orWait one or two weeks and it's on sale.

    Pros

    My area had some celebrity shoppers. Seasonal smells?

    Cons

    While employees are supposed to be suggest products to sell to customers, poor management prevents it. You are not trained. If you are trained, it is by someone who wasn't trained. Many customers come to the store with projects in mind but no idea what supplies are best; untrained staff can't help them. the main duty of most staff is reshelving.

    Almost all staff is part-time; my store had PT employees typically working 3-16 hrs a week. The stores are really dirty, and the stock and shelving style is difficult to keep maintained. In framing, you are tasked with upselling what is already overpriced services/parts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees Employ more full-timers who can provide knowledgeable insight to customers.Offer low prices instead of stupid rotating sales. Ever notice that the frame shop is always 30-60% off? It's not a sale when is never regular price; the sale IS the regular price.
