Retail Sales Associate
This is a part time position, early evenings and weekends required. Our flagship store, aka our Studio, is located in downtown Encinitas, CA.
Ensure the daily operations of our flagship studio is running smoothly. You will open and close the space, prepping it for the Sakura Bloom experience. Many of our community members travel from far to see our shop and you will be there to ensure each interaction is a memorable one. You will be responsible for educating each (willing) person who walks through the door, an overview of the brand, and as requested, in-depth babywearing help for those who need fittings.
You will be maintaining the shop by steaming the carriers and keeping a tidy space that flows well with incoming patrons. You are a self-starter that can tackle projects as they come but also love coming up with your own ideas that help the customer experience, babywearing mission, and checkout flow.
You are passionate about babies, and it’s a bonus if you are familiar with Sakura Bloom carriers! You keep a clean shop, have an eye for design and are very organized. Above all, you are very social and can strike up a conversation with anyone without being too pushy or sales driven. You strive to help every parent have a better day-to-day by sharing with them the wonderful world of babywearing. You are a self-starter and don’t need direct orders to come up with efficient, creative, or fun ways to improve your daily jobs. You seek ideas, you are always looking to learn and grow. Our ideal candidate is local to the North County area with a passion for both the Encinitas and Sakura Bloom lifestyle.
You are comfortable working across social media platforms and have great problem solving skills that can be used in customer service situations. You have high standards for representing the brand and yourself in a relatable, friendly manner. A love for fashion and retail is a bonus.
