About Rachel: Rachel is a familiar face to our regular shoppers. She’s known as a customer favorite and for good reason. She’s a tenured employee who knows the job inside and out and brings her skills, talents, and best self to work every day. Whether she’s handling a customer request or troubleshooting a register problem, Rachel remains calm and collected. But don’t let her cool as a cucumber manner fool you – Rachel is also a lightning-fast cashier and can often be seen doing everything from deep cleaning projects to display creation in her time away from the registers. As a retail management major, she’s seemingly up for any task and is often asking how else she can be of help. Her co-workers value her excellent customer service and friendly manner, saying she goes the extra mile for everyone. As one co-worker put it, “she’s so kind to customers and staff alike, and a delight to work with!” Because of her amazing skills and manner, Rachel was recently promoted and now acts as a manager on duty. Menomonie Market is fortunate to have such a hard-working and helpful employee watching over the store!
