Job description / duties
This is a front-line sales position at Whatcom County’s independent, locally owned bookstore. we have two locations — Fairhaven and Lynden. In addition to helping customers with their book and gift selections and ringing up sales, you will also be unpacking and merchandising books and gifts, aiding in store maintenance, and a plethora of other large and small tasks and responsibilities. The work is very detail-oriented and can be physically demanding. Most of us spend long hours on our feet. Furthermore, you often will not have direct supervision, and therefore, need to be highly self-motivated. An adaptable nature is also a requirement, as we all have to be flexible enough to fulfill a variety of store functions, pitching in where needed. Above all, you must have a desire to serve and build our community by meeting customers’ needs, whether directly or behind-the-scenes.

Customer service and retail experience — as well as a love of books — are preferred but not required. See application for more information.
