Anyway, It so nuts about opening the stores early. But it must be because retailers think they can make more money like that. Surely the customers who wait at midnight would also wait at 10 a.m.
No clue

It's silly. In my store they made us be there 1 hr before the store even opened, which is silly. Usually we come 30 min early. Then from 6-7 not a single person walked in my store because the rest of our strip center still wasn't open from 7-8 one person came in and slowly shopped around for an hour, she wasn't done til after 8, so for the first 2 hours they had us open WE MADE NO MONEY The GAP opened at 8, so then at least one store was open. Our strip center doesn't open early because people don't come to our type of center early, they go to where there's a Kohls or Sears or something... Target, Walmart, etc. We have none of that. We have J.Crew and Talbots and Coach, Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, etc No one is giving away like cheap TVs at 2 am in my center so no one comes there til after they do all their crazy shopping.

So for us to open early is silly, but they always insist we do it. It's their payroll We didn't get "busy" til about 11 am.

It's the corporate thing. They make all the stores open early because some of the stores are open early and get overflow from the big box stores. They don't bother to look at it on a case by case basis. As you say, it's their payroll, but it always pisses me off that employees get blamed for not being good workers or are the ones who pay the price by losing their jobs when managers make stupid decision. I read some crazy figures about how top managers incomes have increased vs. the line employees. IT's now 300 times greater. The CEOs take almost no personal hit for poor management decisions.

My district manager has the power to say when we're going to open even if the rest of the company was opening at 6 or earlier, but she's new and doesn't have the guts

How many employees were on the payroll during the time you made no sales?

Just me and one other girl from 5-8, and then another girl til about 8:30 when we made our first sale. I figured out the pay, it's a little bit less than $100. Pennies to them

I didn't mind not having anyone giving me problems for 3 hours, but I could have been sleeping

This song has a country feel to it, but she's definitely not a country artist. A contestant sang the song on the Voice.

I don't understand why people do that

So here in the valley, this guy camped out of best buy for almost a week so he could buy a 40" Tv for $147 or $174. Yesterday, he bought a whole buffet of Thanksgiving foods like pumpkin pie, mashed sweet potatoes and even a propane turkey fryer to fry a turkey to share with everyone there. I doubt the money he saved on the TV would cover the food cost.

That was really nice of him, but you've got to wonder at his reasoning.

Few things are as good as Brutus pics.

I read that Grace Potter was touring in Europe when her twitter feed started going crazy. She was taken aback.

It's nice camping out here as overnight low is around 50-60 these days and they actually have TVs with them

I can understand it when they otherwise couldn't afford it or when it means extra things otherwise for their families.

But, when people lose sight of priorities and actually knock people over etc.. it's gone too far.
