Macey’s Andrew Hadlock Wins Best Bagger Championship

ah-bestBagger

Macey’s own Andrew Hadlock has been named the national winner of the National Grocers Association’s (NGA) Best Bagger competition. Andrew defeated 26 other  competitors from all over the country at the 2014 NGA show held in Las Vegas, NV on Feb 11.

 

The competition is judged in four areas: speed, proper bag building techniques, distribution of weight between bags, style, attitude, and appearance.

 

This was Andrew’s third time competing on a national level.  He has won the state award for Utah in 2009 and 2010, but this is the first time he has won the national title, as well as a $10,000 grand prize, a “Golden Grocery Bag” trophy, and a Pan-Oston golden checkout stand that will be installed in the Sandy Macey’s.

 

“Winning this award has been a major goal for me. I competed at the national competition two previous times and placed, but I made mistakes, mistakes I wanted to learn from. This year I wanted to improve in any way that I could. I practiced all the time and tried to think of all the different scenarios the judges might throw my way,” Andrew said.  You can see the NGA announcing Andrew as the winner here.

 

Macey’s spends time training their baggers on proper bagging techniques, not necessarily for the bagging competition, but to insure their guest’s items make it home safely.

 

Macey’s is honoring Andrew’s win with a celebration at Macey’s Sandy (7850 S 1300 East) on Friday February 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Andrew will demonstrate his award-winning bagging skills at  10 a.m.  You can pick up an autographed free reusable bag after Andrew’s demonstration and their will also be prize giveaways.  The Sandy Macey’s will also celebrate Hadlock’s win by giving away free mini Kong Kones from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on February 14.

Thanks for spending time on the Macey’s blog.  We hope you come out to celebrate Andrew’s accomplishment with us.  Happy Shopping!
