Checkout girl Janet Kibble receives long service award after working at the King's Stanley Co-op for 35 years
CHECKOUT girl Janet Kibble celebrated 35 years of dedicated service at the Co-operative Food in King's Stanley this week.
Jan, 6 7, who has lived in the Stonehouse area for more than 40 years, started working at the store in King's Stanley high street on September 18, 1978 – just two years after the shop first opened.
“The biggest change I have seen is the way our customers pay. I remember when nearly everyone used to pay by cheque and now it is always debit and credit cards even for the smallest amounts,” said Jan, who lives in Bath Road with her husband Bryan.
On Wednesday, to celebrate Jan’s 35 years, the staff held a party for her at the store and she was also presented with her long service award by Andy Cresswell, deputy chief executive for Midcounties Cooperative.
“The one reason why people come to us is because of our people. People like Jan who have stayed with us year after year and who have always remained so dedicated to our customers,” said Mr Cresswell.
Jan, who has two children and five grandchildren, also received a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of champagne and £350 of Co-op vouchers.
