Proudly Serving: Sobeys #622 Panavista Drive, Dartmouth, NS
Core Value: Always Place the Customer First
Sam had extra reason to be nervous on his first day working at Sobeys four years ago. “My sister works there too and I’m pretty sure she made fun of me the entire time,” he says. The Dalhousie University student was nominated as a Value Champion for his dedication to the customers. “I really like helping customers out,” says Sam. “Seeing them happy before they leave the store is probably the best part of my job because it just makes me happy to carry on with my day.” Sam gets along well with the elderly customers who come in regularly. “They know my name now even without my name tag. I have a great time with the older customers.” Becoming a Value Champion means a lot to Sam who says he was surprised and humbled. “My family is very proud of me and my sister, too. I’ve earned my sister’s respect at work – but not at home,” laughs Sam.
