Grocery baggers have a
vital role in retail food stores. They are a main contact with customers and can leave a lasting
impression. The Pennsylvania's Best Bagger Championship celebrates their
talents in proper bag building, speed, weight distribution, customer service
and professional appearance. In addition, bagging can be a start for associates to move up through the company.
Participants in the Pennsylvania’s
Best Bagger Championship will bag in reusable bags. Download information and the score sheets
