Interested in learning about Fair Trade retail management?

Have a gap year and want to put it to good use learning retail sales and marketing?

Our Volunteer Intern ($tipend available for the right person) will work Summer Festivals and French Markets with us: setting up, merchandizing, handling on-site retail sales and helping to re-pack our truck. These events are outdoors in super fun locations in Chicago neighborhoods, mostly on weekends May through November.

Sit in on our buying meetings and help identify our product mix to fit each festival.

If you have an hour or two a week to spend researching potential venues for us to take a truck to next year, we would love to have your help with that as well!! Can you find us a coffee shop or a brewpub that would like to host a Pop Up store? We welcome creative thinkers!

We’re very flexible with hours; we’ll work our schedule around yours.

Because you may be called upon to drive a cargo van, Interns who are 21+ will be considered first.

Please call the store at 847.733.8258 and ask for Joseph.
