Retirement send off
There was cause for celebration at Save-a-Lot on Sept. 6, as Cheryl Johnston, long-time manager of produce, retired after 15 years on the job. Johnston, center, cuts, the first piece of her cake while Tammy Eddington, left, new produce manager and Layla Turner, store manager supervise. Johnston said her very first job was serving popcorn at the former Massac Theater. From there she worked at Good Luck Glove Factory until it closed. She worked for Addus Home Care and then for Dollar General, where she was an assistant manager before being hired at Save-a-Lot. Johnston says she does not have any big plans for retirement and plans to take it one day at a time.
