This is the first go around so if there anything you would like to know if the future, please leave a comment in the comments section!

Jen P Grandpa Shorter's Internet Store Manager and Jack of All Trades! We appreciate our employees!!

Our first featured Grandpa Shorter employee is Jennifer P.

A little background on Jen – 

Jen has been working for Grandpa Shorter’s since she was 14 years old and is the Internet Store Manager here at Grandpa Shorter’s. So, all the cool stuff we link too on the Grandpa Shorter’s website each week? That’s all put on the site by Jen, the awesome behind the scenes girl. Kind of, because not only does Jen run the web store, she also works as “Jack of All Trades” and frequently helps out on the Grandpa Shorter’s sales floor as needed. Talk about multi-tasking!

She loves the cool and unique merchandise she’s around on a daily basis but says her favorite Grandpa Shorter’s items are the unique antique chests downstairs in Trappers Cabin. Something to check out the next time you’re in store!

Jen was born and raised here in Petoskey. She is married and has two older siblings. Jen enjoys spending time with her family and perusing Pinterest for DIY ideas in her spare time.

I asked Jen what she loves most about Northern Michigan and she said the fall because the leaves are gorgeous and it’s the perfect time of year to walk the trails behind North Central Michigan College here in Petoskey.
