By Micki McCarthy, Weaver Street Market Raleigh Store Manager
The construction crew is working hard to build us our ideal space, and while we still have work to do before the store is ready to open, we’ve hit several milestones recently. The floors are finished, initial plumbing work is complete, most walk-in coolers are in place, and several retail coolers are in the building and ready for installation. The mezzanine is built and the railing on the balcony is currently being installed. We are starting to install more refrigeration equipment, additional plumbing, and electrical. In the next couple of months we will focus on the finishing touches and finalize permitting. We are working towards the goal of opening in early May (maybe even sooner!)
In the meantime, we are keeping busy hiring an amazing team for our new store! The Raleigh store’s new department managers started in October and have been working as a group to craft training programs and to research and develop new product lines such as smoothies and pizzas, as well as working in the existing stores, learning our products and systems.
We are now also actively hiring for all remaining Raleigh positions! Weaver Street Market will host a job fair at the DoubleTree Brownstone in Raleigh (1707 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27605) on February 25th from 11am-6pm. Attending the job fair is a great way to learn more about the different jobs available in the Raleigh store, meet the management team, and quickly move through several rounds of interviews in a short amount of time. All interested candidates can learn about open positions and fill out applications at https://www.weaverstreetmarket.coop/get-involved/careers-at-wsm/.
We can’t wait to open our doors and join our neighbors in the Warehouse District!
