Each week we will be introducing you to one of our great Anika Burke team members. This week is
Hometown: Chico, California
Q: How long have you been working in the shop?
A: Just over one year!
Q: What do you do?
A: I am a sales associate, so I help meet all the daily customers' needs, whether that's helping them find the perfect dress for an occasion, the perfect gift idea, or something to wrap up their Mix and Match deal.
Q: What is your favorite Anika Burke item?
A: I currently love the Ring Around the Rosie Black Floral Velvet Kimono with Fringe! It can be worn with a little black dress or a pair of ripped black jeans. The colors are gorgeous, and the fabric is lightweight and flowy.
Q: Why do you love working for Anika Burke?
A: I love working for Anika Burke because I love getting to help people find something that brings them joy. That joy comes in many forms. It's representing your hometown pride with an Upper Park Tee or Chico Mug or sticker, finding an outfit that makes you feel beautiful, or finding a pair of leggings that you just want to cuddle up in and never take off. I get to see those little things every shift that I work at Anika Burke. (Extra bonus: the girls I have the pleasure of working with are so much fun, super sweet, and hard-working. They're some of my closest friends!)
Q: What is the best advice you can give to a customer?
A: My best advice would be to "Look Up!" There are tons of little things that we have in-store that people always pass by or never notice, cute little accessories and decor that I want everyone to love as much as I do. For example, I love the mini Mix & Match geodes that we have in the front of the store, and the incredible artwork and photography throughout. These aren't the things people usually associate with our store, but they are great finds worth a shout out.
