McMullen is a boutique in Piedmont owned by former Neiman Marcus buyer Sherri McMullen – and they’re looking for an assistant buyer! They carry many of our favorite brands, including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Equipment, Rag & Bone, Yigal Azrouel and more. Everything about the store exudes a relaxed sophistication, elegant without being overdone.
The position they’re offering is full-time, 37-40 hours per week, and they hope that eventually the assistant buyer would take on full buying responsibilities for select departments and/or business.
