Mary Abbott really is one of the family at the Lincolnshire Co-op’s Horncastle store.
That’s hardly surprising as she has been shopping at the store every week - since 1948.
Mrs Abbott will be 100 next week (December 2) and to celebrate, staff presented her with a hamper of goodies (pictured above).
Duty Manager Daphne Simmons said: “Mary is a lovely lady. She comes in twice a week on the bus come what may. We got her a cake last year so we thought we had to better it this year.”
