    Love What You Do.


    You have a passion for organization. You would love to be in a career that provides generous benefits and surrounds you with positive, professional people and beautiful home furnishings that feature American craftsmanship.


    As a Retail Inventory Specialist at our Edina location, you are responsible for the inventory integrity within the showroom. You play an active role educating your retail peers about how they impact inventory accuracy and ultimately the customer experience. In addition you have a passion for design and home furnishings! You love working with customers helping them to create homes they love and jumping in to support the retail selling team when needed. 


    Successful Inventory Associates have a strong relationship with Room & Board's Central Office inventory team and partner with them to establish stock replenishment levels. They process all returns and damaged product and are responsible for communicating any trends they observe. Our Retail Inventory Associates plan and perform regular cycle counts to ensure accurate stock levels as well as research and initiate solutions to inventory opportunities.


    We embrace diversity and value the broad spectrum of careers and life experiences our staff members bring.


    We invite you to join our leadership staff and a few members of our team for coffee and conversation on Wednesday, September 19th from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. at our Edina showroom and discover how we do retail differently.
