Hi all you fellow Cascadians out there!
We are excited to announce that after three solid years helping get CascadiaNow! off the ground (and basically building our store area from scratch), our Store Manager Kelley Kavanaugh is retiring to travel the world, and then settle into a new job of teaching visual and graphic design, and focus on her fashion passion! I’m sure that many thousand of you had the opportunity to know Kelley first hand through her great work in the store, and please join us for thanking in her for her great work and enthusiasm she brought to the job. For those not aware, Kelley joined us after she moved from Denver, CO in 2013, and has been expertly handling customer relations, vendor management, expert shipping, inventory control, and all of our merchandise Q&A.
With this transition, it also means that CascadiaNow! is hiring!
Take a look at the job description below, and if you or a friend might be interested, please send a resume and cover letter to email@example.com.
Because the store manager must manage our physical inventory, we are limiting this position to applicants in the greater Seattle, WA area.
