Buying & Planning

Merchants, planners, and allocators in our New Jersey, California, and New York buying offices have a direct impact on the execution of our off-price strategy. Whether you are experienced or just beginning your merchandising or planning career, your role will be crucial in ensuring our stores are always stocked with great products at great values.

For most associates, we now have a hybrid work schedule that combines working from home and working in the office. As we continue to monitor the public health situation, these guidelines and the timing of this work approach may be updated and are subject to change.

Additionally, each and EVERY Friday, our Corporate, Buying, Planning, and Supply Chain teams are encouraged to complete their workday at 1pm to get a head start on their weekend.
