Preparing For The Holiday Shopping Season



Bookmark and Share

Decorations and holiday music may not be the only thing you’ll notice while shopping during the holiday season. There will also be more employees as stores start to hire for seasonal positions.

As the holiday shopping season draws near, store managers are doing more than making sure they have all the hottest gifts.  

"Our store triples the amount of team members that we have,” said
T.J. Cameron, store manager of Toys 'R' Us.

T.J. Cameron, the store manager for the Toys ‘R’ Us in Sioux Falls said he normally has around 30 employees working in his store.

But for the holiday shopping season, he will hire an additional 65 people.   

"We have lots and lots of positions available: overnight, daytime, part-time, weekends, or one or two days a week,” said Cameron.

But another major retailer in town has a different plan.     
     
“We are just staffed year round and we have all our employees throughout the year,” said Keaton Sturtz, a store manager at Scheels.
    
Keaton Sturtz, a store manager at Scheels said they have a number of part time employees that work year round.

It’s something he said they have to do to keep up with the year round rushes.       

“We have steady year round traffic, so we have to have that many employees year round,” said Sturtz.

But even though Sturtz won’t be hiring anyone extra, he said they will have a little help to keep things running smoothly.

"We do have some volunteers to help us bag on Black Friday,” said Sturtz.

 And with Black Friday right around the corner, hopefully shoppers have been preparing too.

On Black Friday Scheels will open at 7 a.m. instead of 10 a.m. Toys ‘R’ Us will announce Monday what time stores nationwide will open Thanksgiving night.
