The hugely popular teen clothing retailer Rue21 is one of the most closely followed fashion retailers on the internet.

Layton sees the integration of physical stores with online channels as critical for the retail industry. "Having local pages as an avenue of communication between the store and the customer has been invaluable," says Layton. "From an acquisition standpoint, it's great to have a platform through which I can talk to people who aren't yet aware of us. Yext helps me to communicate store hours, sales, and event calendars with consumers. That has really been key."

I would say overall is was a good job for teenagers that are still in school and have no bills to pay. We got paid $11 an hour and managers didn’t get paid that much more. You need to be able to sell and persuade customers to buy fragrance. Everyone customer you have to show them at least to different perfumes( all genders). You must sell a certain amount of fragrances or you will get your hours cut. But if you think you’re a good salesperson this job will be a good fit for you. The bad is you deal with rude entitled customers, the management where I worked was poor and everyone including managers talked bad and started drama with employees, I will say that all stores are different tho. It was an easy job overall, there wasn’t that much to do but customer service. You have to clean and organize the store check on, help out and ring out customers. (Source: www.indeed.com)

Park

Though rue21 is headquartered in Cranberry’s Thorn Hill Industrial Park and it hosts more than 1,120 stores in 47 states, it had never operated a location in what is essentially its back yard. When the decision came in to open up shop in Cranberry, the company pulled out all the stops. The new flagship store includes rue21’s first-ever interactive area, called the rueLounge, where customers can relax and interact with each other and is equipped with free Wi-Fi, a cellphone charging station, iPads to browse and shop the company’s website, and a flat screen TV streaming videos and branding content.

Sustainability and responsible sourcing are key components of the company’s operations, including energy efficient lighting, company-wide recycling initiatives, and requirements for vendors to provide documentation that the materials used to manufacture products sold in rue21 stores are produced in compliance with laws on forced labor and human trafficking. According to the company, these priorities are “goals that will never go out of style.” More about rue21... (Source: www.cranberrytownship.org)
