well ritz friends --

i'm a manager now.
store 1847 in monroeville, pa.
a BRAND SPANKING NEW STORE.

if any of you are familiar with the Boscov's department store chain, you'll know that there is an agreement with almost every Boscov's that Ritz Camera rents space from them. i'm basically a store within a store. 625 square feet of joy. and, for the time being...AA status. and somewhat decent factor figure.

i don't have a lab...i have one of those G4 machines. my finishing (if i get any) gets couriered to the hub store in the mall itself. (my old store, 45.)

things are way different. the best part is: i'm right next to major appliances (ie: 50 inch plasma screen HD TVs with direct tv!) and i get to watch Steeler games. how cool is that?

the downside: since not many people know we're there yet...it's been super slow. i have faith that it will pick up though.

Hopefully your Boscov's store will pick up. Ours (1834) has been here for almost a year now,though I've only been with Ritz for five months, but it's so much slower than the regular store in the mall (135). In fact somedays we don't sell anything at all. I hope you don't end up with that problem. At least I have time to do my homework while at work.
How many people, including yourself do you have working at this new store? We only have three and I work at our other store at least one night a week as well.
Is the china and gift department right across from you? It is in my store and I'm so tired of looking at lenox collections all day.

Oh and I meant to ask what your factor figure was. I'm not sure what ours is, but I know it's fairly high, I made it on to one of the contest lists after just one sale...
