ShopRite associates competed for the title of “Best Bagger” during a friendly contest Oct. 18 at the ShopRite of Burlington in Burlington, NJ.
Associates representing ShopRite stores from 20 different member companies bagged groceries while competing on speed, technique, style and attitude as part of the Best Bagger Contest. Competitors were given a combination of jars, cans, boxes and other groceries as they raced against the clock to bag items in reusable ShopRite bags.
This year's first place winner, Alex Gizinski of the ShopRite of Morrell Plaza in Philadelphia, will travel to Las Vegas in February to compete in the National Grocers Association annual National Best Bagger Championship.
