Employee celebrates 50 years at Chanatry's

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - If you've ever shopped at Chanatry Hometown Market, you may have run into Eddie Nassimos.

He manages the front end of the store, but started working there in 1964 , when the store was located on Bleecker Street. He made the move to the store's current location a year later.

"When I came, I told Chanatry I only wanted to work a couple of weeks," Nassimos said. "I had bought myself an AM/FM radio and only wanted to work a couple of weeks to pay for it. I was 19 then."

Fifty years later, Nassimos is still at the store. On Friday, the community and the store celebrated his 50-year contribution.
