Inspired Living, North River Causeway and Cavendish Boardwalk
Jobs: Sales Associates
Inspired Living opened in October 2018, and sells home decor such as kitchen and bathroom accessories, signs, candles, and pillows. They also offer Do-It-Yourself workshops for making custom accessories.
“These workshops are also great as fundraisers,” says Kirby MacInnis. “The organization receives $15 from every ticket sold.
“We are looking to hire outgoing, upbeat personalities who like the public and who are self-sufficient and hard working. Right now we are looking for Sales Associates, but the company is growing, and there will be room for other opportunities as well.
“Sales Associates will also help run the workshops. We don’t expect people to have experience in DIY – we can show you how to do that.”

Coastal Culture has operated on PEI since 2001. The shop sells clothing, accessories and souvenirs, and is open from May until October.
Cool as a Moose has been open year-round in Charlottetown for the past three years, and sells clothing, accessories, and souvenirs.
“It is a pretty fast-paced work environment, so we look for full-time and part-time staff who can work under pressure and are friendly and willing to work hard,” says Jenn Cameron. “Previous experience is an asset, but we also consider those without experience, because we hire a lot of students who may not have had a job before. Personality and work ethic is huge for us.
“For management positions, we look for some experience in retail. Our full-time staff usually work five eight-hour shifts, but we can work with people who want less than that.”
