‘Upbeat and cheerful’

 

Robert George has found a great fit at the Granville Market.

Robert George grew up working in a grocery store.

His family had a store in Evansburg, Pennslyvania and Robert worked there as a stock boy when he was a child. So it made sense that he would continue down that path as an adult.

Robert got hired at Ross’ Granville Market in February of 2016 as a bagger and has been there ever since.

“It’s been nice to have him here, he’s always upbeat and cheerful,” said Mary Glancy, a manager and part owner of the store. “He likes to be helpful.”

A resident of Newark, Robert spent some time working in an enclave setting, sorting trash and recycling at Denison University. But the grocery store is a better fit for him. 

He works Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, bagging groceries and loading cars.

“I like the people here and the customers here,” he said. “I like the paycheck.”

Robert said he likes to save up his money for vacations. On his last trip, he visited Pymatuning State Park.

When he’s not working, Robert likes to attend SPARK, where he helps with the Dine and Dash program, which provides a free lunch to anyone in need.

He enjoys taking piano lessons and participating in the Aktion Club of Licking County.
