Retail Assistant, Hamilton


How long have you worked for Stretton Clothing?
I have worked here for 2 and a half years.

What first attracted you to work at Annah Stretton?
My mum and i both bought dresses together to wear to my brothers wedding from Annah Stretton. We had such a fun and uplifting experience in the store, and i decided then and there that this was what i wanted to do!

What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love the personal connections that i make with my customers. I find that very uplifting and rewarding.

What’s been your biggest learning and/or achievement since working at Annah Stretton?
I have learnt to really trust my instincts - every woman is an individual and you can really see that if you listen closely.

What’s the funniest /strangest experience you’ve had while working here?
I had a Mother of the Bride come in one day and we chose her dress - She was very happy. The next day a Mother of the Groom came in and she chose her dress, which happened to be the same dress.... As we were chatting away we eventually discovered that they were from the same wedding party! Needless to say we found her another dress! The woman were close friends (with very similar tastes!) and we all had a good laugh about it!

What do you like to do outside of work?
I'm quite an outdoors person - I love the beach, hiking, bush walking with our dog. Spending time with my family is very important. I also really enjoy cooking (and eating!) good food.

If you weren’t working at Annah Stretton what would you most like to do?
I love nature and animals, so something to do with those would be awesome.

What is something that most people would be surprised to know about you?
Most people are surprised to find out that i have teenage children. My husband and i were young when we had our kids, and we all have a lot of fun together.
