I interned at Ann Taylor this summer located at the Summit in Louisville, Kentucky. While interning at this concept store I had the opportunity to work with visual merchandising in the many displays throughout the store to showcase the latest styles in trends. My job also entailed pulling product for markdowns and final sales in order to keep merchandise fresh and circulating. I was involved in store operations in the opening and closing procedures as well as assisting the manager with the balancing of receipts. I interacted daily with customers and was responsible for greeting and assisting clients, offering advice on fashions suitable for each individual. In addition I offered advice and answered questions on fabrics, designs and color. This internship was an experience into the world of retail, fashion and customer service in an upscale environment.
