For reasons unknown to me, I cannot post in the submit news area so . . . . . .
Bear with me, this will be long.
Last night at my store we had a problem with the TIE Bomber and a custome. Lets just say she could not buy it and many unpleasent words were said. When I cam in this morning and was putting out latest batch of AOTC stuff under lock and key I was told about this. They asked me to take a look at what was denied sale. I knew what it was. I tried explaining to Managment for about 20 minutes that this could be sold b/c it does not say AOTC and sdoes not have a blue background. It was part of the POTJ line.
Ok, you all know the problem. So after what is seem like trying to drill a whole into a cinder block wall by banging my head against it, they finally got it! They took it to our UPC office and the girl there called Home Office about it. I then find out that some idiot there says its a promo item to be held till the 23rd b/c its for the new movie.
So, after being made to look like an arse I still held my ground on the issue. About 2 hrs later, HO calls out Toy Dept Mgr and told her that there was a mistake and to go ahead and put it out to be sold!!!! I told her to double check w/the register and make sure it could be sold b/4 we call this woman from the night before back. It rang through fine! As a matter of fact, we have sold 3 today with no problems!
Now since this was done at the HO it SHOULD be company wide. It may take a day or so but you should be able to purchase them now. So GO, get your Bomber and let me know if you did.
I edited the title b/c I think it didn't get the point across
