Sales & Printing Assistant: Katie Gilmore
We are fortunate to have outstanding employees at Venezie Sporting Goods, and our next spotlight is no exception!
Katie Gilmore is one of our Sales and Printing Assistants at the store. If you have ever stopped in towards the evening hours, you likely will see her upon entering! Growing up in the rural parts of Ellwood City, she graduated from Riverside in 2011 and has made her way not only to Lawrence Avenue, but currently resides in town. This year will mark her 1-year anniversary as a part of our family!
Working on both the retail and customer end, she is always going the extra mile no matter where she is needed. From greeting customers to jumping in to heat press to checking inventory and processing orders, Katie is eager to lend a helping hand.
One of the aspects she loves about being exposed to both areas is that there is no feeling of repetitiveness – every day is a new day, whether its simply helping a customer with their shopping experience or helping create custom apparel for a good cause. She is always upbeat, has a smile on her face and always keeps us laughing!
When asked about her most memorable order, she reflects on the little things that make the custom work so enjoyable.
I will say that though I had no part in the production, a little girl came in shopping with her family and was so excited to tell me all about the jacket she had made at Venezie’s to match her older sister’s letterman. They looked adorable and her excitement made my day.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys playing with her nieces and nephews, and of course, her beloved Boxer Lab mix, Puppy!
Thank you, Katie! We love having you on our team!!
