Baggers at grocery stores across the state participated in the New York State Grocery Bagging Competition Saturday and the first runner up was from Greece!
A Rochester Tops Friendly Markets employee did not win first place but Carolyn Huber who works at the store in Greece was the 1st runner up. 2nd place went to Lynn Amhrein of Warsaw.
Three Tops Friendly Markets cashiers from our area headed to Amherst to face off against baggers from Tops, Price Chopper and D'Agostino's who won their regions.
Each competitor had 30 items to bag.
They were judged on speed, how well they weighted each bag, appearance and their attitude.
The New York State winner will advance to the National Championship in Las Vegas.
