New Zen Cart site for Fabric Company

We need to hire a designer/ developer to design the layout, set-up and install Zen Cart, apply the design to the Zen Cart template/ theme system; complete the entire website ready for the end-client to add their products.

NOTE: Product data-entry is NOT required, as the end-client will be doing this. Designer only needs to add a the categories and few test products during production. Also, launching the site live will not be required since we will be waiting for the client to add their products.
