Default Something I'd like to see - a glossary.

I'm seeing lots of acronyms and jargon I don't understand. How about a glossary under lists of doom.

What is a CSM, LP?

I'm guessing a "planogram" is a store map.

I'm sure there are others.

It was something I was considering, but it was low priority on my list. I managed to get roughly six days worth of forum tales harvested for the front pages last night - I need more meat on the bones there before I do much in the way of articles like that. Thanks for the offer, Ree!

As a general note, if anyone wants to suggest and submit an article, get the OK from me and I'll be quite happy to look it over. Just give me a nudge before about what you intend before spending time on it, and I'll let you know if it fits in

I believe CSM is to Wal*Mart what our SC's are to my store. In my store SC's are Service Coordinators. They try to keep everything running smoothly up front with cashiers & service runners. They coordinate everyone's break times, lunch breaks, count the drawers, do cash pick-ups, etc.

A planogram is a sort of schematic or diagram for setting-up a particular shelving unit. It gives all the necessary information needed to put our products on display including which fixtures are needed, shelf heights, where each product is to be placed on the shelves, where the tags for each product goes, etc. They are measured down to the inch and I've never come across one that wasn't spot-on. The people who work up our planograms are pretty darn good at it.

LP stands for Loss Prevention...floor walkers who look for shoplifters. They're supposed to be incognito but everyone knows who they are in my store because they've been there for years and stand out like sore thumbs. It's so funny to see them hiding behind a display trying to catch someone in the act. They can also see through the little holes in the pegboards which are used on the backs of our shelving units. Try looking through one once. It's amazing just how much you can see!

Just a reminder...thanks for all the ones given so far, but I did ask that you email or PM me with your definitions.

If you're going to post them here, please don't assume I will look here. Send them to me as well if you want your definitions in the list. Thanks.

Sorry Ree. I was so excited that I actually knew some of these that I forgot Mark's idea was to have a glossary.
