You are required to remain inside the shop you are working, so you should bring with you what you need for the day (like food - already prepared, a sweater if you get cold, something to drink etc).

Booga Shack is the biggest and most challenging shop and encompasses several sections, and is based on Booga Wear. It is exclusive to Kelleys Island, an original creation & printed in the store which makes it a great tourist attraction and souvenir. People come back every year to visit the Booga Shack and buy their stock of Booga Wear. This section requires constant folding and must be maintained after each round of customers come and go.
Beach Rack and has a beach theme of clothing, novelties, sunscreen etc. This section also requires maintaining but most things are hung rather than folded but generally all the items get placed back in the wrong position, so need to be straightened after each round of customers come and go.
Flip Flop Shop which includes sandals, hats, sunglasses and women's clothing. The same maintenance is required especially for shoes in boxes, as customers sometimes switch the boxes or sizes, so they need to be constantly checked.
All of these sections use the same cash register station. The employee in this shop will not have time to sit down, there is ALWAYS something to be done. This is considered the most challenging position and requires a very conscientious employee willing to engage with customers and easily maintain shop and watch for customers coming and going.
