Proudly Serving: Sobeys #678 Cambridge, ON
Position: Produce Clerk
Core Value: Proudly Serve Our Communities
One of the best parts of Mary’s job is getting to know customers who come in regularly and being able to offer them assistance. For instance, she has taken it upon herself to ensure an elderly customer who is blind is able to shop safely and efficiently whenever he comes into the store. “It’s been five or six years that he’s been coming in on Fridays,” says Mary. “I wait and watch for him and make sure I’m available. If he doesn’t show up for a week or two, I start to get worried.” Mary considers becoming a Value Champion her proudest moment as a Sobeys employee. “I always place the customer first. We have people we see every day, sometimes until they are no longer with us. We try to ensure they have the best experience possible.” Building relationships with customers and co-workers helps create a welcoming environment. “My Sobeys is my home away from home,” says Mary.
