5 Minutes With...Gjergji (aka George)
Each month we’re chatting with a different member of the Dave’s team about their experiences and favorites. We are excited for you to get to know our Dave’s family a little bit more through our “5 minutes with…” blog posts!
Next up is Gjergji, a long-time sales associate.
Where are you from? Albania
How long have you worked at Dave’s? 23 years
What’s your favorite brand that we carry? The North Face
What’s your favorite color of a Dave’s tee? Safety green [Hi-vis]
What item(s) do you see trending right now? Definitely Dickies 873 and 874 work pants. It seems like 2 out of 5 customers that come in have asked for Dickies lately!
Which item are you eyeing for your next purchase? Red Wing Heritage Chukka boots in grey
We see so many visitors from all over the world. Where would you like to travel to on your next vacation? Grand Canyon. The landscape reminds me of places I used to visit in my country, and I would love to explore it.

Anything else you want to share with us? Like I said, I’ve been working for 23 years here. It’s a respectable and responsible job. The people I work with, it’s like a family...they’re all from different places, different cultures, different religions. But we all have gotten to know each other over the years.
It’s a pleasure working here because you get to help people from all over the world...doesn’t matter what language they speak or what culture they’re from. And with the store right in the middle of Manhattan, it’s really is the center of the world for tourism!
