    Yeah don't overthink things so much... formal is a good bet, colour of slacks doesn't matter, black shoes might be better.. wear a smart shirt, but not something too stand outy. You don't have to wear a tie, but if you feel comfortable with one, go for it.

    colour of slacks doesn't matter, black shoes always look well in that situation, nice, crisp shirt, tie would be good, but if it makes you feel uncomfortable don't bother.
    don't forget a jacket that goes with pants, finishes it off nicely. doesn't have to be formal just smart.
    best of luck

    Just dont go in Trackie bottoms and a Celtic jersey and you'll be fine.

    Family member worked there last Christmas. Flexibility, initiative and good customer service seem to be key. They seem very good to their employees. Staff discount and holiday pay. Good luck

    I would think so if the location wasn't specified. From my time in retail, store managers would conduct interviews for their own stores in their own stores.
