We said a fond farewell to our much-loved checkouts colleague Chris who's retied after working in our Perry Barr store for 27 years.
Colleagues decorated Chris's till with banners and balloons for her final shift. The store's community champion Bella said: "Chris is a 5ft firecracker, very bubbly, friendly and always happy to help. She's happily moved with the times over her 27 years here. She's a fantastic colleague and friend and joins in with all the community and engagement events. She's a great listener and is the mum/big sister of the store. She’s a real hit with the customers and her regulars will queue just for her. Chris has been telling us all how busy she's going to be in her retirement, sorting out the spare room and looking after her beautiful grandchildren and she has assured us all she'll still be in to do her shopping."
