Humans of Hamden: Jennifer Fontaine

By Julius Saporito

Jennifer Fontaine has been working at Bob’s Stores located Dixwell Avenue for 10 years. She is currently the supervisor at the store and really loves her position. She looks at Bob’s Stores as not just a place of work, but a place of learning.

“I have been here ever since high school, so it’s been a long time and I have learned so much here and this place has really given me a lot," Fontaine said. "I learned how to work and communicate with other people something I was not the best at when I was younger.”

It was recently that the store had a lot of people come in for the Black Friday deals and is one of the store’s busiest days of the year.

“It is just expected at this point and is no surprise to me by now," Fontaine said. "We know how well to plan for this and things ran very smoothly at the store.”

The holiday season is here and from what she knows from the past and being there for so long, she expects the store to be “epic."

“It is going to be epic in here and that’s just the way it’s been, but we'll do well like we always do.”
