Sales Team Member – Lewes Gourmet & PUZZLES

Lewes Gourmet & PUZZLES are seeking engaging and outgoing part-time staff to join our friendly team!  We are looking for customer-oriented individuals who will strive to exceed guest expectations in our two stores located on the Canal in the center of historic Lewes. Helping visitors and locals alike find the perfect gourmet specialty food, table top item, jigsaw puzzle, puzzle game, book or brainteaser will be your primary goal.  However, being an ambassador of Lewes will be just as important as you assist with parking, give directions, distribute visitor information, recommend places to eat & shop, and generally welcome all to both Lewes and our stores.  As a team we strive for everyone entering our store to feel welcome and looking forward to returning again when they are next in Lewes.

Apart from greeting guests/customers you will open and close the stores, operate the point of sale system/cash registers, process deliveries, restock and display merchandise, clean and tidy as necessary.  Dependability is a must but as great service and success rely on a team effort, we also pride ourselves in a flexible working environment that recognizes that Life Happens.  We are looking for people with both initiative and a willingness to listen and learn about our products and approach for doing things—while offering their own insights and suggestions for making improvements.  Our ultimate goal is to provide exemplary customer service to our guests.

Our ideal team member will have a high school diploma and at least one year of experience in a “customer” facing role (although you may also have a PhD or be a retired Admiral!).  You may even be a “Beebe baby” or equally may have recently stumbled across Lewes for the first time.  Maybe you have an artistic flair for creating windows, displaying or merchandizing products, or conversely a touch of OCD with a pension for keeping things organized and tidy. The key is a willingness to learn new tricks and a desire and willingness to share your love of Lewes and our stores with others. We are open 363 days of the year with extended hours in the summer. Team members typically select reoccurring day(s) of the week in the off-season and then a reoccurring schedule reflecting our extended hours is mutually agreed during the summer high season.  We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Lewes Gourmet & PUZZLES offers competitive compensation, store discounts, and a collegial work environment in a beautiful location that overlooks the 1812 Park, Canal & Fisherman’s Wharf in historic downtown Lewes.

How To Apply:
Qualified, interested and outgoing individuals should submit their resume and cover letter, or a completed application in person at Lewes Gourmet & PUZZLES, 108-110 Front Street, Lewes.
