I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. My name is Gretchen Holmgren and I recently started with the City of Eden Prairie as the Liquor Store Operations Manager. Though I am new to the liquor industry, I am not new to the retail world. I have been working for the past 20 years in both retail management positions, and in the financial industry.
Throughout my first few weeks on the job, I have been continuously impressed with the high caliber of this community and the loyalty to Eden Prairie Liquor as a municipal operation. In fact, on my first day I was told that Eden Prairie Liquor profits have contributed more than $11.5 million to projects such as playground equipment and road improvements over the past decade. That’s pretty impressive!
I am committed to upholding a high standard of customer service excellence at Eden Prairie Liquor and I am very excited to be part of this great community. If you stop by and see me at one of the stores, please introduce yourself – I look forward to meeting you!
