the several creppy things I do....
Especially at Target..
- I like to compile all the pegs with 1-3 figures onto just a few pegs, making them full and leaving 5 open pegs. I do this before
I ask the employee for cases in the back. When they say there's none, I tell them the pegs look thin(because they always say they cannot stock unless there's room on the pegs). When they see the pegs sometimes it works and it gets them to draw a case out of the back- it's worked enough times for me to keep trying it. Works especially great if you have a store that still has buttons on the floor mounted scanners-if you punch in the DCPI verifying quantities in the stock room and then coupled with peg quantity reconfiguration you have all their anti-lies at the ready!
- I reconfigure the figures on the pegs to create 'room' when I notice cases on the pallets, then I ask a toy person for help stocking cases. If they help me fine, I offer to help stock 'em. If not I get the cases anyway
A rare trick I tried and it worked a couple times...at any retailer I get sick of seeing the pegwarmers. So what I do is I place them all on their own pegs then call a clerk for help, complaining that 'these are the only ones you have?', ' I already have them' Do you have any more to stock?' Like I said, sometimes that method got me a case too.
Sometimes of course I get bored and just rearrange all the figs on respective pegs to see who the real pegwarmers are
