028: Bottle Grove Wine & Spirits Seeks Retail Associate

Bottle Grove Wine & Spirits

Bottle Grove Wine & Spirits

We are a boutique Wine & Spirits shop in a residential area in White Plains. Our focus is smaller producers and our team tastes and selects each wine that goes on our shelves. In addition, we provide high-touch customer service to every visitor to our store. That includes assisting customers one-on-one, introducing them to selections outside their typical comfort zone, and hosting organized regular tastings and events. Above all else, our mission is to place quality, thoughtfully-made wines in the hands of our customers.

We’re currently hiring for a position with our Retail Floor team. Candidates should have a passion for wine & spirits and enthusiasm for learning on the job. While we maintain an organized & well-kept Retail shop, our team is equally focused on growth through events, corporate sales, partnerships, & e-commerce. Team members should be prepared to work in a fast-paced organization that is constantly seeking out & testing new initiatives. As we continue to grow, team members will have additional opportunity to build on their skills & interests – whether that be in marketing, editorial, events, or corporate sales.
