Boundary Mill Stores are an option worth considering for any students living or studying at colleges in Colne, Grantham, Sheffield, Newcastle and Walsall. The small chain of outlets operates in the heart of England and could throw up a variety of retail job opportunities for students and graduates based in the right towns and cities.
Boundary Mill Stores have been around since the 1980s, selling goods for the home and fashion brand clothing and footwear from names such as Austin Reed, Hobbs, Jaeger, Timberland and Hush Puppies.
Their first Boundary Mill Stores branded outlet was the one at Colne, Lancashire in the North West of England - and that location is still the flagship store for the company. Over the last three decades, Boundary Mill Stores have moved into four further locations and opened up hundreds more full and part time retail jobs in the process.
The chain markets itself as a complete day out experience rather than just a nip to the shops. In addition to the retail therapy on offer at Boundary Mill Stores, all of their retail outlets have ample parking and places for customers and whole families to eat. So, in addition to retail jobs within their clothing and homeware departments, there are also opportunities for students looking for restaurant jobs at Boundary Mill Stores.
One of the good things about Boundary Mill Stores from the student perspective is that some of their retail outlets are open until 8pm on many days. With the opportunity of not only weekend work, but also work in the early evenings, it could be easy to pick up extra shifts at Boundary Mill Stores without putting your study time at risk.
As with most retailers in the UK, Boundary Mill Stores experience extra footfall from gift-hungry shoppers towards the end of the year. So, if you are anywhere near a Boundary Mill Stores outlet and fancy a Christmas job then make sure you start looking early (September onwards) for any temporary retail positions being advertised.
As for what qualities Boundary Mill Stores value highly in their staff, they say:
“We are committed to offering the best customer service and exceeding our customer’s expectations. We are looking for motivated individuals who understand that it takes that little bit extra to provide exceptional customer service.”
So, you will need to be friendly, presentable, customer focused and professional in your approach to retail work and customer services if you want to impress the recruitment decision-makers at any of the five Boundary Mill Stores.
