Johnnie Brown has retired from Kroger after 34 years of working with the Grocery Store.

A retirement party was held at the store on Saturday afternoon for Johnnie to celebrate with her co-workers. Johnnie began her employment in the produce department at Kroger on May 5, 1989. After 3 years she moved to being a cashier and stayed in that position until her retirement on Saturday.

“The man who hired me was Mr. Phar. When I came to Kroger the good Lord guided me here. When I came I wasn’t even looking for a job. I had brought somebody to the store,” said Brown. “At the time I was collecting unemployment and I put in an application and have been here ever since!”

Brown attends church at Traveler’s Rest and has two boys and a daughter who passed away in a car accident. “I raised her kids too. I’ve got 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren,” bragged Brown.

Miss Johnnie said about her retirement, “First I’m going to sit down and relax. Then when springtime comes I’m going to get ready for my garden, my flowers. I love stuff like that.” Brown went on to say, “When I need groceries I’m going to shop at Kroger. I’m going to miss everybody here. We are all a family.”
