We’re doing a new series of blog posts where you can learn about all the amazing people that make up our Off The Wagon staff! As you might imagine, the people that work here are a little eccentric (just like the shop). We’ve asked everyone a couple of questions, and we think you’ll really enjoy hearing from each of them. Up today is Lauren Heroux! Lauren is one of our newer employees, but she came in with a bunch of experience (both at being weird and at retail). She is currently working as our shipping manager, so she’ll make sure all your cool new gadgets get to you if you order from our website.

Q: Tell us about your family (pets included).
I live with my 'trophy husband' Pete, and daughter Sophia. We have two cats, Fiona (named after Princess Fiona, from Shrek) and Mooncake (named after a character from Final Space). We also have a pet Cherry Shrimp, a Beta named Sirius, and a Leopard Gecko named Charlie!
Q: What’s your favorite movie?
My favorite movie is The Fifth Element and I quote it... often! If you have never seen it, you need to :)
Q: What’s your favorite part of working at Off The Wagon?
I think the best part of working at Off The Wagon is being surrounded by fun things and fun people who get me and all of my awesome weirdness ;)
Q: What are your top 3 favorite products we carry?
In no particular order...
My Baby Yoda shirt I got at Off The Wagon before I even worked here. As soon as I saw the pic posted online, I knew I had to have it!
Q: What’s your favorite game we carry? What do you like about it?
Dungeons & Dragons - It has everything... strategy, teamwork, story telling, arts and crafts. My family and I love to paint minis and go on an adventure now and again
Q: If you could have an infinite supply of any of the weird candies we sell, which one would you pick (and why)?
Astronaut Ice Cream is my number one!! It reminds me of my childhood, tastes amazing, and has the most unique texture. Leave it to the Astronauts to come up with something crunchy, but can still melt in your mouth. Yummmm!
Check back soon to hear from some of our other amazing employees! In the meantime, you can find all the products mentioned here (and many, many more) on our website. Go check it out!
