When your coworker has a milestone birthday, you usually have some cake in their honor. One San Antonio grocery store did much more than that when an H-E-B partner turned 90 years old last month.
Alfredo Cantu, a customer service associate that helps with bagging items, turned 90 on November 17, prompting a Texas-sized celebration. The in-store birthday party came about after Marlene Lyon, the store’s administrator, suggested the idea to the manager. Lyon wanted to acknowledge the milestone since Cantu, who has been with H-E-B for 29 years, doesn’t have any family in San Antonio. After getting approval from her manager, things started coming together to celebrate Cantu.
