Carol Tomlinson Named Moraga Employee of the Month for July
Carol Tomlinson, a popular sales associate at McCaulou's, has been named the Moraga Employee of the Month for July. Tomlinson is the fifth recipient of the monthly employee award, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Moraga and the Chamber of Commerce. Other winners have included Al Pyne of Moraga Royale, Mike Hamiche of Safeway, Ana Trinidad of Total Clean and Inge Olson of CVS Drug Store. Tomlinson oversees the women's and lingerie department and maintains inventory and markdowns as well as serving her many customers. She has served the store's clients since 2004 and consistently has attracted praise and loyalty from her customers. "Carol gives a lot of tender, loving care to our customers, whether a sale is involved or not, and they recognize that she makes them her top priority," said McCaulou's store manager Carol Evans. "She is such a friendly, personable individual and is always upbeat. A lot of customers stop in to say 'hi' to her, even if they are not shopping." In winning the award, the Rotary and Chamber will award Tomlinson a $50 gift card to Safeway as well as a $50 gift certificate to Ristorante Amoroma in Moraga. Tomlinson will be presented with her award and gift cards at the Moraga Rotary luncheon on Tuesday, August 21.
