Seriously, I like working on occasion at the “Treats & Treasures” kiosk featuring sweet & charming princess themed gifts and dress ups at Provo Town Center.
I just don’t like that I only get to stock it at 6 am or after 10:30pm now that the holiday hours are extending…I worked tonight from 6-10pm and just got home because of the stocking for the “big rush” tomorrow we expect sales to be HUGE. I enjoyed seeing some friends there tonight and showing everyone the cool foam swords we got in that make sounds like “cling! clang!” when you hit them (only $10.95) and I also played our musical tutus for everyone (Swan Lake, they’re motion-sensored).
It’s a toss up if I prefer designing and creating store displays or working with the customers, I really enjoy design and the behind the scenes “creating a story with merchandise” and the psychology of where to place things, etc. Visual merchandising is even better and more effective when you have the right tools (grid pegs, shelves, etc).
