Hello Blue Market AK supporters,
Summer is here and perhaps you are feeling that slowed down lounge-in-the-sun urge that pairs itself with a frenetic Alaskan summertime need to squeeze everything in our short but glorious season. We hope you are all getting outside, playing in your gardens or in the mountains or on the sea or lakes. Ah, Alaska....
We just wanted to share a few bits of news and then let you get back to your summertime fun:
1) We are hiring!
We need a part-time, outgoing, passionate-about-minimizing-waste person to help round out our Blue Market team, as some of our awesome staff are moving on to college and other exciting adventures. Duties include retail sales, inventory (must be able to lift 50lbs), barista, and a willingness to educate and share our refillery model with new and returning customers. We need weekend shifts and also some partial shifts during the week. This is an ongoing position (not just summer). Interested? Please email Jen and Jess at email@example.com
2) We are expanding our hours IN OCTOBER - thanks to all of you who took the time to fill out our survey, we were so excited and touched to read your comments and collect your feedback. It looks like we will be open later in the evenings and one more day per week - starting this Fall. (NOTE: We will be CLOSED on Sunday July 4th.)
3) Our next 1% Giving Back Recipient is Cook Inletkeeper.
For the months of July/August/September, 1% of every sale made will go directly to this fabulous organization. Read below for more information about them.
4) Memberships are prorated for $50 as of July 1st. Renew or join for the first time, the current $50 rate is good through Dec. 31, 2021. Did you know that Students and Seniors 65+ are ALWAYS only $25/year for membership? Membership gives you 10% off every purchase, plus access to a handful of "members only" discount days throughout the year, and a whole lot of good karma for supporting our little eco-friendly venture.
With love and gratitude,
Jen and Jess and the entire Blue Market AK Team
