Retail Sales Associate – Full-Time
Due to continued sales growth, The Preservation Society is able to add an additional full-time sales position in The Shop located at 147 King Street.
The PSC bookstore has been a primary resource for local and regional titles for nearly four decades, and we have expanded our selection of books in every genre to create a true old-school bookstore experience for our customers. Additionally, the gift shop has become the local resource for outstanding products made in Charleston and the surrounding area. Our featured brands include Brackish (the largest selection found anywhere), Smithey Cast Iron,
J. Stark luggage, and Add Libb handbags. Our Charleston Maker program has been featured in Condé Nast and USA Today.
This is not a standard retail job. No big corporation. No silly conference calls. Just mission-driven, story-telling, customer interaction. Everyone on staff contributes to all facets of the business from selling, to purchasing, to stocking, to cleaning, to merchandising. Mainly, we all represent The Preservation Society in providing a genuine Charleston experience for our guests. If you are not familiar with The Preservation Society of Charleston, please visit preservationsociety.org. We will also be expanding our retail website, so any experience in online retailing is a plus.
Retail specialty selling experience is helpful, but not critical. We are mainly seeking individuals who really want to be here and are looking for a meaningful retail opportunity. Associates will also expected to be involved in other PSC functions such as our annual Carolopolis Awards celebration and other events throughout the year.
The store is open every day, with limited, seasonal evenings. Weekend availability is expected. This full-time position is salaried, paying $30,000.
If interested, please submit a cover letter and resume via email to: Andy Archie at firstname.lastname@example.org. No telephone calls, please.
