The retail industry can be a great summer experience as it is very broad. Perhaps you prefer to work indoors at a mall or grocery store or outdoors at a garden centre – the possibilities are endless. Retail sales associates have to be friendly and helpful representatives who are ready and able to make sales. Duties include opening and closing the store, merchandise display, managing tills, customer assistance, placing orders, promoting and greeting customers. You can choose to apply in-store, or online, depending on the preference of the store. Check the employment section on your local mall website for job openings.
