Volunteer Roles Series: Merchandising Maniac

This is the fourth edition in the mini-series regarding the different volunteer roles that you can do with the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Please note that all of these specific roles require additional training, and a minimum 3 month commitment.

If you’re enthusiastic about getting things done, consider becoming a Merchandising Maniac at the ReStore. In this role, you will manage and display ReStore merchandise on the store’s sales floor, and you will assist customers with their questions and requests.

Interested “Maniacs” should have an eye for detail and a creative mind. They should also be comfortable standing for the majority of a shift and retaining information about the store’s policies and layout. It is desirable for Merchandising Maniacs to be able to move lightweight – to – moderately-heavy items, but this is not required.

This role helps to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, which in turn increases the ReStore’s revenue which helps us to continue to build hope and homes throughout both Durham and Orange Counties.
