This week in our Meet the Team series, meet Mitch!
Name: Mitch More
Title: Vice President and business partner
When did you start working at Nicklassons? June 1, 1987
What was your first role? I was the retail manager for 6 months and then was fortunate enough to be able to buy into the business on January 1, 1988
Why did you originally decide to join the Nicklassons team? I had been in the retail clothing business for 10 years in New Ulm. I was talking with one of the Nicklassons employees and told him if there was ever an opening to let me know, as I am a sports enthusiast and thought it would be a good fit. It just so happened that there was an opening so I interviewed and got the job. The rest is history.
What do you like most about your job today? I enjoy that in this business that there is always a change of seasons and a change of sports, so you are constantly working on something new.
What has changed the most since you started at Nicklassons? When I started, we either called or mailed our orders in to the factory. Now you either order online with the factory or scan and email the order to them.
What has stayed the same? The constant need for new uniforms and equipment.
What does the word “service” mean to you? To me it means starting and following through with your customer, but most importantly when your customer has a problem you are there to take care of them.
What are some of your hobbies outside of work? I like to take bicycle rides with my wife and enjoy playing softball. I enjoy watching baseball, football and basketball on TV. I am a big Gophers, Vikings and Timberwolves fan. I also do some golfing and really enjoy it when I can find my golf ball!
Look for more team profiles coming soon!
