New Online Spirit Shop Means Business
On Wednesday, November 17th, Warren-Walker School will kick-off its first online store with exciting new products and spirit-building items. The Warren-Walker Spirit Shop (link coming soon!) will make purchasing available online for nearly all goods sold by the school. The Spirit Shop will be supported by the Warren-Walker Promise Foundation and operated through the School of Young Entrepreneurs (SofYE). SofYE will, in turn, use the online shop as a teaching tool for students to increase their financial literacy through operation of an actual business.
The Spirit Shop promises to offer a slate of new merchandise as well as most current products available through the school, with items being delivered to campuses on a regular basis. One exciting new item, a light blue polo uniform shirt, is certain to be a hit with students looking to add to their school wardrobe. Other items include beanies, headbands, scarves, facemasks, sweatshirts, stickers, and trucker hats. New items will be added seasonally. Additionally, items celebrating Warren-Walker’s 90th anniversary, including t-shirts and mugs, will also be available.
“The Spirit Shop is so much more than just an avenue to generate revenue,” said Mr. Talbert, Director of Young Entrepreneurs and Spirit Shop Manager. “It gives students a turnkey opportunity to bridge the gap from the conceptual learning in the classroom to real-world business. Students can gain business management experience, show pride in their school, and display their talents to the community.”
Another exciting element of the Spirit Shop will include the “Gulls Inc. Student Spotlight” section, a blog that will feature Warren-Walker entrepreneurs and their products. Each spotlighted student will have his/her product for sale on the Spirit Shop website.
“The Student Spotlight highlights those that exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit,” Talbert said, “and the values Warren-Walker School and the School of Young Entrepreneurs wish to instill in our students.”
