Andy has worked for Star for 2 months so he’s AKA, The New Guy.
As the new guy, he’s learning everything… still. (His words, we think he’s doing great)!
Andy was a devoted customer before applying for a job. He applied because he enjoyed everyone he encountered in the store on his visits and it seemed like a place he’d really enjoy.
He tells us he didn’t have any intention to apply anywhere else.
He retired a few years back and missed the camaraderie of being on a team and Star has welcomed him with open arms.
Originally he’s from boring Indiana (again, his words), but lived in Tennessee for 20 years before getting an opportunity to move to Durango.
In the 6 years he’s been in Durango, his favorite thing about living here is the laid back vibe and everyone’s shared love of the outdoors.
Andy’s hobbies include telephone surveys, bikes, skiing and hiking with Brian, his dog.
When asked what his favorite adult beverage was he said, ‘Can I list Bourbon 5 times’? He also enjoys stout beers, lagers, & kolsch. He is NOT an IPA kind of guy but he’s trying to learn.
I asked his wife if he likes working here and she agreed that he loves being here so that must be true.
Next time you’re in Star, come say Hi to Andy. He’s the really nice guy greeting you at the counter with a smile and happy to help out in any way he is able!
