School Store Teaches Kids About Business First-Hand



It's only open for 20 minutes before school and 20 minutes after, but the school store at Gibraltar does a brisk business.

Marketing and Business Education teacher Mary Witteborg says the 12-by-12-foot store had $17,000 in sales last school year -- and they don't even sell apparel, just breakfast and after school snacks.

Witteborg says working at GBay gives business and marketing students a chance to apply their training to real life situations. She says many students mention it's "more work" than they thought.



Witteborg is also the advisor for the only Door County chapter of DECA -- an organization that prepares students for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management. Witteborg says four students recently captured district awards in marketing competitions and two will be going on to compete at the state level in March. She says their DECA chapter is also active in fundraising for various causes throughout the year.
