84-year-old former Asda supervisor, Rachel Glover from Littleton Lodge care home, took a trip down memory lane when she got back behind the till at Asda in Cannock.
Rachel worked as a supervisor for Asda in Tipton for 30 years. Rachel said, ‘I loved my time at Asda, interacting and meeting all the happy shoppers and putting smiles on their faces!’
After telling the staff at Littleton Lodge all about her fond memories from working at Asda, the team got in touch with Asda in Cannock to arrange a VIP visit.
When Rachel and the Littleton Lodge team arrived at Asda, Rachel was given an official name badge and jacket, and was asked if she would like to get behind the till to serve some customers.
Smiling from ear to ear, Rachel picked up a label scanner and beckoned her first customers! Rachel said, ‘It’s all about making memories, and I’m very grateful to have been able to relive some of the happiest days of my working life.’
After helping the shoppers, Rachel was thanked by the team at Asda with a bouquet of flowers, and an invitation to enjoy tea and cake in the café. Sue Westmancoat, the Community Champion at Asda in Cannock, commented,
‘It was a pleasure to have Rachel here and to bring back some of her memories.’
Soni Atwal, the Front of House Manager at Littleton Lodge, added, ‘We’re always looking for ways to give our residents experiences they’ll never forget, and to reignite their most cherished memories.
‘It was wonderful to watch Rachel behind the counter, talking and laughing with the customers in store. She was a natural!’
