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!
