JobsNOW: Clerk position offers small-town feel

The position could put you on the front lines of the biggest little store

LOWELLVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) - JobsNOW is shining the spotlight on a position that could put you on the front lines of the biggest little convenient store.

Dairy 224 is just 50 yards from the state line on Route 224 in Lowellville. Owners are looking for a part-time clerk who must be 21 years old because the store has liquor, tobacco and lottery licenses. 

The person will ring customers out, stock the shelves but no heavy lifting, and even make sandwiches for the large lunch crowd.

“Everybody knows everybody. You get the same customers on a daily basis. You get to know them, and they get to know you,” said Joyce Howell, secretary and clerk at Dairy 224.

Dairy 224 has a long history in the community and that stretches into Pennsylvania, too. Many people come over to buy cheaper tobacco products. 

“It’s like a mom and pop store, not your big chain store. Been in business 40 years in September. It’s not like we are going to close tomorrow,” Howell said.

Dairy 224 is only open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The store needs someone to work Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon to 8 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but they can be flexible.

The opportunity is perfect for someone who has open hours or is looking for a second job. The last person stayed 30 years.

“Once they come here, they usually stay. We are easy to get along with, and we are flexible with people,” Howell said.

Dairy 224 will do background checks before hiring. You can apply in person at 6868 Center Rd.
Lowellville, Ohio, 44436.
