Job Duties

We have a unique space called the Heath Newsstand in our San Francisco location. It is an evolving concept space that enables Heath to interact with the Mission community on dynamic levels. The Heath Newsstand is a separate yet intrinsically connected part of the Heath showroom experience in SF.

Expanding on some of the magazines and books we already carry in our showrooms, it features publications on food and design, a variety of magazines and newspapers, international publications, and like any good newsstand, it offers refreshments and snacks. The Newsstand has something for everyone, including our local neighbors and visitors.

Heath showrooms are destinations for a multitude of customers: homeowners, contractors and architects working on behalf of their clients, restaurateurs looking to create that perfect interior aesthetic, designers working on exciting projects and the dreamers that are coming in looking for inspiration.
