A reset is a large-scale rearrangement of a store's products. Resets are completed by teams of merchandisers and can take hours to several weeks to complete. Most stores conduct resets 2-4 times per year. Resets are done to keep things fresh for shoppers and maximize sales.
Each reset has a designated Reset Team Lead who will assign you your tasks. The Team will explain how each task should be done and will check your work when you're done. It is crucial that you follow the Team Lead's instructions.
While each reset is different, common tasks reset merchandisers complete include:
- Moving products to new locations within the section or store
- Tearing down and rebuilding entire sections
- Removing old products that have been discontinued
- Adding new products / new product lines
- Changing or adding new price tags
- Changing fixtures
- Changing graphics
- Adjusting shelving
If you don't understand the terminology or are unclear about what you should do, make sure you ask the Team Lead for clarification. The Team Lead is responsible for getting the reset done on time and correctly, so they will help you with whatever you need.
