Featured Client- Soul Flower

Soul Flower was founded in 1999 by Mike and Peggy as a way to promote a bohemian, eco-friendly, and peaceful lifestyle. Our little shop on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul, Minnesota was a gathering place for college students and locals looking for ‘cool threads for kind heads’. Since those days, Soul Flower has made a few changes… they no longer have a retail store, but have expanded with a digital catalog, an online retail shop, a wholesale catalog, and a screen printing team. One thing that hasn’t changed is our dedication to offering our customers thoughtful, eco-friendly clothing styles at an affordable price – and of course the best customer service anywhere!

In 2014, Soul Flower contacted Eric Moen at SJF to assist in a new addition to their expanding warehouse, and he was happy to oblige.  Eric can be reached at emoen@sjf.com or directly at 320 485 4963.

SJF’s very own November inside sales champ Eric Thovson ( right) shown here with classmate Mark Karsten talking some smack & posing for photos this past weekend. Eric and Mark posted times of 27.84 & 27.95 respectfully. Not bad for 2 of the oldest swimmers at the meet.

Eric has long been very passionate about promoting the local swim team and has been instrumental in the success of the current program. When he’s not promoting swimming, Eric can be found at SJF Material Handling in Winsted, MN. There he works as a inside sales & solutions specialist. No stranger to success, November was a record sales month for Eric and good enough to secure the #1 rank honors among his peers.

So what’s next for Eric “ET” Thovson?
Could an Eric Moen swim challenge be in the cards for 2015?
