WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y., 2017-Nov-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tops Friendly Markets is pleased to announce that their associate Sabrina Martone, from Elmira, NY who works at their Big Flats store, walked away with the title of New York States Best Bagger. The event, sponsored by Food Industry Alliance, allowed fourteen contestants from a variety of grocery stores from across the state to show off their skills. There are no age restrictions for the contestants and the only qualification is that they must spend more than 25 percent of their time at work bagging groceries.
The contestants were graded on: speed, proper bag building technique, distribution of weight between bags, style, attitude, and appearance. One best bagger will represent each state, the District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories. Sabrina was also presented with a check for $2,000 from Michael Rosen, president and CEO of the Food Industry Alliance of New York State. From here, Sabrina will advance to the championship National Grocers Association show in Las Vegas next year where she will have the chance to compete in a competition for a grand prize of $10,000!
