Tagging DO's and DON'Ts

Tagging DO's and DON'Ts

Never do any of the following with your tags.

  • Do not change a price. Ever.
  • Do not cut the No Discount off because you changed your mind.
  • Do not use white out on a tag.
  • Do not use stickers to change a price or consignor number.
  • Do not write on the back of a tag.

Ok, so why all the rules on tags? Think of your tag like you would think of checks to your checking account. If you write it in pencil, someone can change it. If you change a price, how are we to know if you did it, or someone of less than honorable intentions did it? Did you cut your tag? Or did someone wanting a deal cut it? If you use stickers and the stickers come off, how can I pay you when the consignor numbers don't match up? Did you add the sticker over the price? Or did someone not want to pay your price? If you write on the back of an old tag, when I am sorting tags, will I know if the item that sold was a $3 sweater, or a $90 stroller? As the person in charge of your tags you need to make sure that your prices and your intention is incredibly clear.

As a result of all the possible ways to change a tag, we will not sell any item that comes through the check out that has been altered in any fashion. Yes it may sneak by us during the check in process, but it will be a waste of our rack space and your time to tag it, because we will not sell that item. So please write a new tag for any changes you wish to make.
