Long-serving colleagues at the Asda store in Corby were honoured by the company at a special celebration lunch after clocking up 235 years and nine months service between them.
Nine members of staff were asked to give their feet a rest and enjoy a lunch at a local restaurant and they each received a personal thank-you from the general store manager and people services manager for their hard work.
Rose Stiter the longest serving worker, who has been at the store for 28 years and six months, said: “I enjoy working for Asda a great deal. We’re like one big family and it’s always pleasing when you’re recognised for your commitment to the job.
“Asda at Corby has always been a big supporter of the community it serves and that’s important to me and a major reason why I have stayed for more than 24 years. You should be proud for whom you work for and I definitely am.”
Gary Brown, store manager, said: “We’re extremely proud of our colleagues at this store. They are so committed to serving and supporting the community and it was only right that we gave our longest-serving colleagues some recognition for their efforts. They’re an inspiration to the rest of us and I hope they enjoyed their special lunch.”
