Meet Leona, Assistant Manager at our West Edmonton Mall location in Edmonton, AB
How many years have you been with Paris?
I started in October 2015.
What are you grateful for?
I’m grateful for my family and amazing people around me.
What is your favourite customer story?
It is really hard to pick just one because there are many that touched my heart. One customer shared with me that she met her husband when she was 9 and he was 10. They were on vacation with their parents and he was leaving few days earlier that her. And he came to her and told her, “I fell in love with you, I love you, and one day I’ll find you and marry you.” Many years later she was standing in front of me picking up a gift for their 40th anniversary. I’ll never forget this story; a story about true love.
What was the last random act of kindness that you did?
A few days ago when I reached home after my shift I saw a lady carrying her groceries from her car with two little kids running around her, and other one in her arms, so I helped her out.
What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
RIN-LCA-2853 - It was love at first sight.
Who inspires you?
My grandparents because of their hard working and can-do attitude.
Best advice you’ve ever received?
It might sound cliché, but the advice I’m trying to follow in my life is: Never give up, Never stop dreaming, You are your limits.
What is your favourite food indulgence?
It is definitely what we called back home as “candle” sauce with dumplings – it is delicious.
Do you have any fears?
My biggest fear is failing myself, because it means I failed everyone not just myself and heights.

To be part of the customers stories and be around such an amazing and hard working people.
