- merchandising the front window and shelves (get creative)
- store maintenance, including walking the floor and tidying, restocking, etc. (we like things to look pretty)
- unpacking, pricing and merchandising new product shipments (feels like your birthday opening so many packages!)
- processing custom orders, including meeting with customers, creating detailed schedules and estimates and managing clients timelines and budgets, and advising them on best practices (read up on Emily Post!)

the right person will be a self-starter; able to think outside the box to help put organizational systems in place to help the RPS team grow! so if you're calm under fire, able to run a tight ship, love to be around pretty things and like to get creative, you might just be who we're looking for!
