Finally, The Grand Announcement: I'm Working at....



Yafiz יפיז, the Rami Levi Clothing &Shoes for The Entire Family Store, in Sha'ar Binyamin!

I spent today getting to know the store and G-d willing next week I'll get three shifts of work.  Everyone was nice and helpful.  I stayed busy but made sure to eat and drink etc.  I had an "easy shift," first thing Sunday morning when there are few customers and lots of "housekeeping," cleaning, straightening, consolidating and putting out new stock.

I was given a jacket with the logo to wear over my clothes, so customers can see that I work there.  A couple of friends stopped in to shop and were surprised and happy to see me. Everyone wished me luck.

Over the years, in between my gym teaching and English teaching I did work at a couple of clothing stores, much smaller ones.  The advantage of working in a larger one is the flexibility in scheduling.  As a teacher I was forced to miss weddings and other important events.  Working in a small store is also restrictive when there's only one handling a shift.

G-d willing this should be good.  The clothes are very tempting...  drop in and see!
