Grocery store employee retires after 50 years of fun


Aundrea Kinney/Review • Dave Wachholz retired from Knowlan’s Fresh Foods grocery store Sept. 3, after 50 years with the company. Although he has worked at many of the Knowlan’s locations over the years, Wachholz retired from the South St. Paul store, located at 225 13th Ave. S.

When 26-year-old Dave Wachholz, who at the time was fresh out of the Navy, started working as a daytime stock boy for Knowlan’s Fresh Foods on Sept. 3, 1968, he had no way of knowing he would be with the company for the next 50 years.
