‘Britain’s oldest supermarket worker’ is to retire next month at the incredible age of 95 after more than three decades of dedication to his customers.
Reg Buttress joined the Sainsbury’s team at the Cwmbran superstore in South Wales at the age of 57 – and says he has loved every minute helping customers and meeting new people.
Along with new faces to the store, dad-of-one Reg has even watched local shoppers grow up after first meeting them when they came in with their parents.
Hard-working Reg says the people he meets at work are the reason he has kept going as long as he has. He said: “It’s something I want to do all the time. I always like to be at work meeting people. That’s the main thing in life, meeting people.”
