Company Description

The Vermont Country Store holds a rich history with deep roots in Vermont. While we’ve always offered hard-to find products, we also offer easy-to-love careers in a variety of roles. From full-time professional careers to seasonal opportunities that play a key role to ensuring our success during peak periods, we have something for everybody at VCS. You may be in our office in Manchester, our retail stores in Weston and Rockingham or the call center or distribution center in North Clarendon, but one thing that is certain is all of our teams are full of passion and pride, knowing they’re delivering our customers a connection to the past!

When Vrest Orton opened The Vermont Country Store in 1946, his goal was to offer his customers practical products for everyday use — things that were essential to maintaining their personal well-being. Seventy years later, we continue to follow in his footsteps, not only with our customers, but for our employees too. The Vermont Country Store offers a unique work environment in a rural setting for those who enjoy the outdoors and country lifestyle. The array of perks and benefits we offer our employees is specifically tailored to support our Vermont way of life, and some of them you won’t find in many other places. Some favorite perks are our onsite health center, fully-equipped fitness centers, access to our community garden, employee discounts, and fresh fruit, coffee, tea and milk offered daily. We like to say that the strength of The Vermont Country Store is in its people, so we are committed to supporting their overall well-being with benefits and programs that work for them, not just our business.
