Jenny celebrates two decades of service

BORN and bred Bundaberg woman Jenny Larsen recently marked a massive 20 years working at Coles Bundaberg at Sugarland Shoppingtown this month with an in-store celebration.

Working on the check-outs and occasionally in the office, Jenny said she enjoyed catching up with her regular customers on a daily basis.

"The customers and people I work with are definitely the best part of my job," she said.

Having worked at the same store for 20 years, Jenny said she had seen many changes, including the recent store renewal featuring self-service check-outs and a new floor layout.

"Self-service has been the biggest change so far. The way we do things has become a lot easier over time because of new technologies," she said.

Jenny points to Coles' flexible work arrangements and the friendships she has made with her fellow team members to explain why she has stayed at the same supermarket for her entire working life.

"When I started working at Coles, I never thought I would be here 20 years later but I am very glad it has turned out that way," she said.

"The people I work with are like family. I have made some great friendships along the way."
