You Should get to Know.
Each month we will be featuring a staff member for you to get to know! Our staff thinks of our consigners and shoppers as an extension of the The Loft family and we want to connect! This month you should get to know our very own Mackenzie Abrams.
Position: Sales Associate at The Loft.
Past: Mackenzie has her roots in Ames, Iowa as she is raised as the daughter of store owners Eric & Amy Abrams. She is one of two children with a brother named Colby. Her dog Cooper also as a faithful companion to the family.
Present: Mackenzie attends Gilbert for high school and is in her sophomore year. She is involved in fall and spring soccer which keeps her busy most of the year. She also is a natural born leader making her a fabulous manager for the girl’s basketball team. In her spare time she loves hanging out with her friends, going shopping, and watching movies.
Future: Mackenzie has a lot of options awaiting her future but plans to focus right now on great customer service for the stores and enjoying her friends and family as college years are fast approaching!
This time of year, as we embark upon the busy holidays, I can’t help but think of how grateful we are for our customers, consigners, and staff. We couldn’t do what we do without the generosity of everyone who makes this store work. Please keep Toys for Tots in mind up until December 14th. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Thank you for your business, and as always for shopping local!
