What do you remember most about your first day on the job?

The manager was very kind, and I still work with three of my first co-workers.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

After all these years, I still love my job. I love to help customers with skin care.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

Being chosen to attend a giftware show in Toronto to help choose new products for our stores.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

Setting up the new, larger store 10 years ago was a lot of work but lots of fun too. We were all proud when we were ready to open the doors.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Be yourself, enjoy your job, and provide good customer service.

My Sobeys is...

...a great company to work for.
