Last week in our blog we showcased our fearless leader, Jim Rodda, owner and operator of Pottery World for 41 years. This week we thought we would introduce our customers to some of the other family members who work at Pottery World and help make it the successful business it is today.
Jim and Sharon Rodda’s oldest son Bill handles outside inventory and buying for Pottery World Rocklin, and you will often see one or more of his nine children helping out around the store as their school schedules allow. The third generation is already hard at work at the family business! Bill is your go-to-guy for anything fountains and pots and, along with his crew, keeps the outdoor showroom looking great.
Ann Rodda Garrett is the middle Rodda child and she handles the interior side of things for both stores including all the gorgeous displays. Ann is a talented designer and works tirelessly wherever help is needed, even in the Cafe! Ann’s husband, Justin Garrett, is the General Manager of the Rocklin store. Bill, Ann and Justin will always take time to personally provide assistance to anyone with a question or specific need.
This list would not be complete without Jim’s wife, Sharon Rodda. Sharon is one of the most vivacious members of the Pottery World family. Whether working diligently behind the scenes, greeting guests or helping out in the Cafe, Sharon is full of infectious energy and our customers love chatting with her!
With so many impersonal, corporate-run companies these days, we hope that you appreciate the genuine, customer-first approach that is a huge part of the way we do business. This feeling of family extends to all our employees and here at Pottery World, and we strive to show it in the way we treat our customers.
