Senior baggers return to Ley supermarkets


Because they are considered vulnerable ages, they were removed to their homes during the pandemic, do not hesitate to support their work.

If something we never learned during the pandemic was to bag our pantry efficiently and quickly in self-service stores, the pressure of the customer from behind made you nervous and you ended up throwing everything after the pain when you felt observed even by the cashier.

But what do you think, this will be in the past because some baggers from these stores have returned, turning the page of the pandemic, reactivated, and encouraged to return to this work that made them feel active.

It is enough to see them in action to understand that they like what they do; Their ability is unique, they already know how to unfold the bag in the blink of an eye, they are not distracted and they arrange things even by sections, personal hygiene, vegetables and fruit, meats, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies.

They always have a sponge with a little wax so that it is difficult to open a bag, but they hardly need it, their talent has made them popular not only in Mazatlán but throughout the country.

It was at the beginning of the pandemic that the Federal Government indicated that older adults will take shelter in their homes as they are considered a vulnerable age, that dampened the spirits of many, however, the support was not lacking, in some self-service stores the rounding was carried out exclusively for this population segment.

Things have changed, they must wear their masks at all times, not have physical contact with customers and use antibacterial gel constantly, due to the exchange of coins they receive.
