A Fareway employee has taken home the crown of best bagger after a national competition.
Trevor DeForest, 35, won the Best Bagger Content Monday night at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, bringing home a $10,000 grand prize. DeForest grew up in Osceola and works as an assistant manager at Fareway's Maquoketa store.
DeForest has close to 21 years of bagging experience, beginning at Fareway in Osceola at the age of 14 as a part-time bagger and stocker.
DeForest raced against other state champions from across the country to bag identical grocery orders of approximately 35 commonly purchased items into three reusable grocery bags. Competitors were scored on speed, weight distribution among bags, and proper item arrangement.
