Tell us your story: Have you worked in retail during the holidays?

Retail workers put up with long hours, pushy customers and crowded stores during the holiday season.

For many people, working in retail is a rite of passage — often the first job teens work during high school or college. In Ohio, the retail industry supports one in four jobs. Whether it brings back good or bad memories, we want to hear your story of working in the industry.

Did you work long hours? Meet a spouse during that job at the mall? Have a particularly horrific experience with a customer? Share your memories or your horror stories with us.
