Proudly Serving: Sobeys #680, Miramichi, NB
Position: Store Manager
Core Value: Get it Done with Passion and Integrity
When Joey MacDonald moved to Miramichi more than 20 years ago, he felt immediately that it was a tight-knit community where people help each other. “In a town of fewer than 18,000 people, you know everybody when you work at Sobeys,” he said. As a store manager, he says his job is to keep a clean, well-stocked store, and talk to customers to find out what Sobeys can do for them. “I love it, that’s why I do it,” he said. Joey knows first hand that Sobeys touches the whole community. Over the years he has watched toddlers in carts grow up to become students, then employees looking for first jobs. When confronted with a terrible tragedy involving four teens on Easter weekend, Joey quickly loaded his truck with water and snacks to bring to local schools, knowing that counsellors would be there to help students cope with their loss. “Thanks Joey for having a huge heart and for just being the caring guy you are,” read his nomination letter.
