retail news in context, analysis with attitude

This isn’t the kind of press release that MNB normally would pick up, but somehow this one seemed like it was worth making an exception for…

Brookshire Grocery Co. announced that one of its drivers, Alan Worster, last Friday passed the one-million mile mark as a company trucker…and that in all those miles, he’d never had a preventable accident.

According to the statement, Worster “will receive a specially designed
‘million-mile’ ring and have his portrait displayed at BGC’s corporate office in Tyler, Texas … A regular competitor in the Truck Driving Championships, Worster has won at the local level twice and state level three times. He is the first BGC driver to have advanced to the National Truck Driving Championship three times.”
