Great grandmother Margaret Finnie has shopped in our Dundee Kirkton store for 'donkey's years' – and when our colleagues found out it was her 90th birthday they surprised her with flowers, balloons and a cake.
Community champion Sam Will, who helped organise the surprise, said: "It was a pleasure for us to make Margaret's day special. She was very happy and a wee bit shocked. She said no one had ever done anything like this for her before.
"She thought the drip cake as fantastic – she couldn't wait to have a bit of that!"
Margaret, who's a widow, has two children, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She worked in the city's jute mills before she retired.
Her son Thomas said: "My mum really enjoyed what Sam and everyone at Asda did for her.
"We've been going in every week for donkey's years – she really enjoys going in.
"Everyone there is really friendly – they always speak to her and ask her how she is."
Store manager Dougie McKeown said: "You could see how happy Margaret was – she was a little overwhelmed.
"There's a real local community feel to this store which is right in the heart of Kirkton, and we see a lot of regular customers in here daily.
"Sometimes we see the same faces come in two or three times a day to pick up bits of shopping, and to have a chat too.
"We all love seeing regular customers like Margaret and Thomas – we value and appreciate them all."
