Long serving Sainsbury’s colleagues, who have worked at both of the town’s stores, have celebrated a combined total of 40 years’ service.
Jenny Hannant and Julie Markwell have each worked 20 years for the supermarket, starting off at the town centre store, before moving to the one at
Hardwick when it opened two years ago.
Hardwick Road store manager Chris Pardoe presented Jenny and Julie with their 20-year service badges and flowers as a thank you for their service and efforts.
Jenny started working for Sainsbury’s on checkouts and Julie first started on night shifts, and now both work as online shoppers.
They both said that throughout their 20 years service, it was the customers and their colleagues which made their jobs so enjoyable.
Colleagues from both stores wished them well and said they were looking forward to the next 20 years.
