Congratulations to Charlie Herron of Western – Rocky Ridge for winning First Place in the Best Bagging Competition at the Alabama Grocer’s Association annual convention in Destin, Florida. The prize was $1000 in scholarship money and the chance to compete in the national competition in Las Vegas. He earned the right to compete in the state competition by beating out the top 6 baggers from Western in a company-wide competition. In Destin, Charlie competed against the best baggers from Publix and several other independent grocery chains in Alabama. The contestants were timed using reusable and plastic bags, as well as being judged on weight distribution and proper content organization. Charlie will now represent Western in the National Grocer’s Association Best Bagger competition at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas on February 10 with a chance to win $10,000 and an appearance on The David Letterman Show!
If you are in the Rocky Ridge Western, offer Charlie congratulations for training hard for the victory and representing Western with class. Good Luck in Las Vegas, Charlie!
