Retail Ready

Finding stable, full time employment is often a barrier for many individuals looking to become self-sufficient. Retail Ready teaches participants the ins and outs of the retail industry to help them confidently secure employment. The six-week program offers a mix of classroom and in-store training at WINS thrift stores to give participants hands-on experience.
