Thread regarding Kmart layoffs

shoparazzi program

I'm just wondering if anyone on here works at a Kmart that is running the shoparazzi program. It seems like a huge project for a store to support (if customers are actually using it). For those who are unfamiliar, basically you give Kmart your shopping list and they do all your shopping, even if Kmart does not sell the product. Associates are responsible for driving to other retailers if Kmart does not sell a product, in order to fill the shopping list.

I would totally do this job. Out of the store at times, getting paid mileage to drive around and shop other stores, maybe do a little shopping for myself, stop for lunch, meet a few friends. Heck, I could even deliver a few pizzas for Dominos on the way and make a few more bucks. Where do I sign up

Chances are it is only being done in stores that already offer the service. This is a new job description for a dedicated employee.

As for the service itself, it ultimately enhances loyalty from members and increased basket size.

I can't believe that they are going to do this. Another stupid moronic idea from corporate

Stores that have mygofer home delivery have done this but without a designated person doing the picking and store back up for contacting members. So while it may not be a new program, there's a new name and what appears to be an expansion of the items available. Most of the mygofer items shopped from non-SHLD stores have been HBA and specialty grocery.

This is insane. A bunch of young kids (or retirees maybe) driving their own cars to do this? What could go wrong? (actually I can think of a big list...)

That could be hilarious. I wonder what the limits are on what they will pick up? How far they will go, and how big? Can I send them out to pick up 50 sheets of 5/8" 4x8 drywall?
