Company Description

From that first brick-and-mortar shop, Lakeshore has evolved into a leading developer and retailer of high-quality educational items for children from birth to sixth grade. It was established in 1954. It now has a flourishing e-commerce operation, a national sales division, catalogs, and 60 retail locations across the country, but it still considers itself to be '64 years young'—a company that continues to expand at a rapid pace. It credits this expansion to their team of more than 2,000 employees. Since 1988, Lakeshore has been creating cutting-edge goods. From first drawings and 3-D models to extensive research and classroom use, the creators bring Lakeshore products to life. It is providing career opportunities like Administrative Assistant, Events Coordinator, Retail Sales Associate, and more.
