SUN – SAT 7am to 2pm
My name is Adrian Horn, and I'm very privileged to be your Community Leader here in Concord NC. When I first started at Maple Street I was working on my degree in marketing and graphic design. At the time I just needed a quick job to get me through my last semester of college. I told myself I wouldn't be here longer than 3 months. But oh, how quickly that changed! A few hours after applying I got a phone call, they were looking for a brand-new team to start at the soon to be opened Concord Community store. I joined early on and helped set up the store, putting up shelves, unpacking dishes, watching it get built from the ground up. I was awed watching the leadership team care about each team member and encourage us individually. It was leadership like I had never seen before. After our grand opening in May of 2018, I got the privilege to serve as a team leader, and assistant community leader before finally being offered the role of Concord Community Leader. For me being 22 at the time, the idea of running my own community store was daunting, however the mission kept ringing through my head. If I turned this down, where else would I be able to help people, serve others, and be with my community in such a powerful and direct way? I've had a huge number of personal mentors through this job and I've been blessed to give a fraction of that same mentorship to some of my team members. I deeply hope that you will come visit us next time you are in Concord, North Carolina. Now that you've heard my story, I'd love to hear yours.
