For the month of May, I’m introducing you to Erica B. Erica has been with Grandpa Shorter’s for 5 years. Like many of the of the other Grandpa Shorter’s employee’s we feature on the blog, Erica is also a Jack of All Trades throughout the store. She is the floor manager, event coordinator for Grandpa Shorter’s and Jennifer Shorter’s personal assistant. Too sum it up, Erica get’s it all done with a smile while working in almost every area of the store.

Erica, like many Grandpa Shorter’s employee’s was born and raised here in Northern Michigan and other than the snow she wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else. On her days off, Erica enjoys spending time with her lab and beagle mix, Lucy. When I asked Erica what her favorite products were, she mentioned the gorgeous Leland Blue Jewelry items saying she loves all the pieces.
