Cue: Working in retail in the run up to the festive period… Winter Wonderland? Or a nightmare before Christmas? Customers shopping at F.Hinds jewellers can range from being in high festive spirits to to being completely panic stricken.

Two colleagues, Jordan and Kathy, discuss what they love about working around this time of year, as well as what can be challenging. Jordan and Kathy have worked together for the last year and so the tone and atmosphere is more relaxed.

The jewellers are considered by many to be an important part of gift shopping around Christmas time. The store in which Jordan and Kathy work is of particular importance as it is located in a small town, just outside of London, where customers expect a more tailored retail experience from the employees, thus making the festive period slightly more challenging.

IN ‘I really like working at Christmas’

OUT ‘Don’t even start me on that’

Back Announcement: Maisie Saikia there talking to Kathy and Jordan regarding their retail experiences during the festive period.
