Students in retail services experience retail sales in two environments; working at the Tiger’s Den (school store) and at Meijer’s. While working at the Tiger’s Den students learn about displaying merchandise, organizing merchandise, pricing items, using a cash register, counting money, checking expiration dates, and customer service. The Tiger’s Den provides students retail experience in a simulated environment.
While at Meijer’s students size clothing, locate items throughout the store, identifying clearance merchandise, organize merchandise, prepare clothing for the sales floor, and interact with customers and employees. Meijer’s provide students with opportunities to learn about retail in the community.
