Outdoor Adventures Simulation
Outdoor Adventures is a fictional retail operation in downtown Minocqua, WI. The company has been in business since March of 2008. Marv Waldorfson is the owner of Outdoor Adventures. His wife Hildy also works there part-time. Outdoor Adventures specializes in outdoor adventure clothing and gear for skiers & snowboarders, hikers, bikers, snowshoers, and the general outdoor enthusiast or treehugger. Marv has always planned to also offer guided trips to explore the backwoods of Wisconsin. These guided trips would include Hiking, Mountain Biking, XC Skiing, and Snowshoeing. Up till now, it has been a family operation, but with the good winter weather and the sluggish economy forcing people to vacation closer to home, he has seen his business grow as Sconnies, and a number of Illinois vacationers travel to the Wisconsin north woods.

Like many small business owners, entrepreneurship means long hours, doing everything yourself and pouring everything into the business until it is established. He does everything from retail sales, customer service, ordering, display, promotions, billing and accounting and even cleaning. Well, his time has come and he has decided to add an official employee...and you are that employee!

Outdoor Adventures carries the following brands (and many more...).

As the first official employee of Outdoor Adventures, your job description is as follows:
  • Assist on sales floor, provide customer service, cashier
  • Assist in inventory, stocking and display
  • Create promotions
  • Assist in developing information for guided trips
  • Assist in invoicing
  • General retail operation while Marv & Hildy are leading guides.
  • Other general duties and jobs as requested.
In preparation for the expansion of the guided service, Marv would like you to help him create all the materials for the new service provided by Outdoor Adventures. Knowing that you are such a pro of computer applications (the reason you were hired), he is certain you’ll be excellent help. You will be provided with a “to do list” for each day of your employment. Those are listed below as jobs per day. Upon completion of each assignment, submit it (to your teacher) for approval by Marv.

Because Marv is still not rich by any means, he relies on Google for all his computer needs. He does not have MS Office, knowing that Google can essentially provide his business with the tools he needs for no cost at all.
