Celebrating Nova

Nova Askue

Anyone who’s been in the shop – over the last 9 years – has probably encountered Nova, she’s the heart and soul of our shop, the very definition of re-souL. Nova came to us right out of college with serious ambition and a mid-west mindset. Turns out, that was the very thing re-souL needed. Nova, for nearly a decade, has set the pace, defined the company and won the hearts of our customers, too many to count.

With a heavy heart, today we announce that Nova is moving on. She and her fiancÊ Nick are taking their talents to Lopez Island (Washington) to pursue their dream. They are opening a restaurant on Lopez called Ursa Minor! They are on track to open next month.

Many of you have talked with Nova on the phone, met with her in the shop, or know her from other experiences – but let’s just say that no one has ever experienced personal service the way that only Nova can deliver. We ask, have you ever received better honest service from a retailer – ever- than Nova? We didn’t think so.

What you may not know is that Nova has also been the driving force behind our website, our marketing, our social media and everywhere you experience re-souL. Not a single image gets to you without Nova’s approval. So if you’re a fan of our website, our blog, our Facebook, our Instagram, google+, or whatever…. you can thank her for making it happen.

Please know that while the staff at re-souL will miss Nova dearly, we will strive to provide the superior service that makes re-souL famous. Legh, Maggie, Margaret, and Katie have everything it takes. We are fortunate that Nova will still be helping out behind the scenes from time to time while we go through this transition.

Nova’s last day in the shop is Thursday, March 30th. Please consider taking a moment to stop by and wish Nova the best in her new venture.

We love you, Nova! Your hard work and dedication were an integral part of our team and the growth of re-souL. As you turn the page in your life’s story, we join together in wishing you every success in your new endeavor, Ursa Minor!
