Tariffs impacting GM profit.
Probably getting rid of the apparel areas. No manager ever visits that area in our store and actually refuses to work in clothing. We know that managers exist because of other associates talking about them----but we think they're ninjas because we never see a manager.
This sounds plausible - the previous SM at my location said that some store buildings are going to have a much smaller sales floor (he talked about some buildings being used as half store/half distribution center). Many GM items will likely become online-only.
I don’t think he is lying. We will have to wait and see.
