On your marks, get set, BAG! And with that, 25 supermarket check-out baggers from around Ohio raced today during the state finals of the 27th annual National Best Bagger Contest. The competition was held at Geyer's Market in Lexington. Geyer's Supermarkets Vice-President E. J. Geyer says the contestants must spend at least one-fourth of their workday bagging groceries, and are judged on several criteria including speed, weight distribution, and proper technique by separating foods from household items. He says baggers are the last people customers see, and how well their groceries are handled can dictate whether they'll be returning customers. And Geyer says baggers are the unsung heroes of grocery stores. One winner from each state goes to the national competition in February in Las Vegas, with the national winner appearing on the David Letterman Show to challenge him.
