REAL is pleased to introduce Dan Cunningham, our new REAL Deal Store Manager. Dan has been busy since November 7 learning everything he can about our operation from Shelley Wills, whose last day was November 24.
Dan’s customer service experience running a family owned cash and carry furniture store, as well being a past Rona sales associate, makes his a good fit for the Store Manager position. He is a firm believer in reducing waste, providing green jobs for residents, reusing and repurposing merchandise, and offering great prices for people looking for a bargain. He is a life-long garage sale enthusiast, and says his favourite TV show is Canadian Pickers. He has previously worked at Hershey’s and as the Health and Safety Manager at Stanley Tools, so feels a strong connection to the people and the area.
Says Dan, “I look forward to working with our staff and volunteers to make the REAL Deal a great experience for our donors and shoppers, as well as helping customers with their redo and reno projects.”
Dan will be responsible for the smooth operation of the whole REAL Deal Reuse Store operation both in the main building and outside, where more of the renovation and yard materials are displayed. Reach him on the store phone (613) 283-7999 or email him at dcunningham@REALaction.ca.
