Since 1974 The Foam Shop has been providing our customers with quality comfort products and friendly, expert service. It's no wonder such a large part of our business comes from return customers and customer referrals. Nowhere else can you find the selection of comfort products that you'll find every day at The Foam Shop.

The Foam Shop is a 100% Canadian owned, family operated business. Starting from a single store in North Vancouver, we now have 12 stores across the lower mainland and have Canada's largest retail inventory of comfort products -- and we're still growing.

That growth is the reason The Foam Shop is hiring. We are seeking sales associates for several locations including our Island, Vancouver, and Fraser Valley stores. After training and gaining some experience with our customers, our sales associates very often grow into keyholder and managing positions. We pride ourselves in providing a training program that rewards and facilitates the journey from associate to manager.

We are looking for a result driven retail Sales Associates to be responsible for all sales activities, from inquiry through to close. The successful candidate will be able to elevate company standards, achieve sales goals and meet the client’s expectations.
