Meet Sandy Weir, one of our friendly cashiers in Bedford! Sandy has worked for Pete’s Fine Foods for 8 years, and today she tells us more about her work, her passion for local cheese, and the way she spends her time off.
What does a typical work day look like for you? My day starts with getting ready for the customers and helping other store departments with what they need.
Favourite local product we carry at Pete’s Fine Foods? All the cheeses, there are so many different kinds to choose from. The local That Dutchman’s Cheese Farm and COWS’ cheddar are my favourites.
Favourite movie? Pretty Women. It does not matter how many times it is on, I still watch it.
How do you like to spend your days off? Catching up with family and friends.
What would people be most surprised to learn about your department? People would be surprised to know how friendly we are with our customers. We know them by name and they know us by name too, not because of our name tags but because we take interest in each other.
Favourite local spot to grab a drink or bite to eat? Grab a drink or a lute of food at Boston Pizza. I often go there with friends after seeing a movie.
What would your theme song be? “The way we were”, I am huge Barbara Streisand’s fan.
Favourite product in your department? I look at chocolate bars all day and you have to love chocolate!
