Current open hours: Every day 12pm to 7pm 

*If you’ve ever worked at a regular retail job, we understand why you might be hesitant to apply. Corporate retail can kind of suck and let us reassure you, this job is NOT that. We are an independently owned, “Mom and Pop” store that treats our team like family. The good kind of family. Just ask any of our current or former helpers about their experience with us. If you fit the qualifications listed and your instincts are telling you this could be a good fit for you, send us your info and let’s meet!
