She’s a beloved part of Kingston Food City’s staff.
Ninety-year-old Lillie Herrell still bags groceries at the large regional grocery chain, and she’s been part of the business for decades.
“It was the White Store when I started,” said Lillie Herrell.
Herrell said she started working for the grocery chain back in 1963.
She said the White Store used to be located where the Roane County Jail is today. The grocery chain later became Food City and eventually moved to Ladd Landing where it now sits.
