OH! P.S. Here’s a little bit about us, in case you’re curious:
-We’ve been in business here, in Anoka, for a little over 25 years now.
-We’re owned by a brother/sister duo and have a small, dedicated, and super talented staff. (It’s actually more like a family around this place.)
-The building we work out of is over 100 years old. It used to be the bank. The safe is still here (it’s used to store our balloons and helium tank), and our basement is really creepy. (But, cool.) We are moving, in August, to the old co-op location (we’ve gotten to big for where we are now and are tired of renting)–you will get to be a part of that, we think it’ll be a nice mix of amazing fun, and crazy chaos. 😉
-We are closed on Sunday’s, and major holidays. (Plus, we close early, most days, before the major holiday–we don’t want to be here either on those days) and, we’re only open regular, business, hours. You won’t be here past 6pm, 99% of the time. (Sometimes customers come in late; so, we stay. Also, around Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day–we stay. It’s just SO busy.)
-We really love what we do; but, we also love your suggestions, and we welcome them. We value creativity around here highly. Working with us isn’t like you’re working FOR someone–it’s more like you’re working WITH someone.
-We are right on Main Street. We think it’s really awesome to share a building with a brewery, a candy shop, and a pet grooming school (Yes, beer, candy, and puppies are just down the hall.) Across the street there are clothing stores, a new age shop, antique stores, salons and a tattoo parlor, a music store and even a jeweler. Down the street, you have everything from an ice cream shop, to little diners, to a shoe store, an acupuncture place, smoke shops, bars, pizza places…and SO much more. Main Street, and the surrounding streets, are really eclectic, and fun. (When we move…we’ll be right across from the ice cream shop. So…there’s that. 😉 )
Anyway…that’s just a little about us. If you’re looking to find a job that feels good to you–or, if you’re looking to switch gears completely, send us over your resume–we’d love to meet you. If you feel like you’d fit in great here–even if you feel like you’re lacking the experience–we still want to meet you. If we feel like you’d be a good fit for the shop–we’ll gladly train you!
