In 2008 Spencer’s began “giving back” to our core customer, Nikki and Jack, by supporting cancer education, cancer prevention, early detection, and avenues of support in the event cancer strikes.

 The bi-annual Spencer’s “Boobies Make Me Smile”  in store campaigns have raised over $2,000,000 to date, by enthusiastically embracing the sale of rubber bracelets, stickers, and accepting donations in all stores, and emphatically believing in the cause.

100% of the donations collected in our stores go directly to our partners to provide support and resources on methods of  prevention, early detection and living with the disease to millions of Jack’s  and Nikki’s across the US and Canada!  .

    Pros

    I worked at Spencer's Bloomington, IL while I was in ol legs. the management was great, but our regional management was a bit too micro. It was a very fun, laid-back work environment, and my coworkers all got along well.

    Cons

    The regional management was a bit out of touch. They seemed way more concerned with the smallest details of following the corporate rules than getting results in sales, creating a good customer experience, or retaining employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you have working the sales floor on a daily basis. They are the ones dealing with customers and making the shopping experience.
