, N.Y. — Edward Pavlich of Port Jervis, N.Y., was recently honored for his 50 years of service at ShopRite.

The company recognized several longtime associates celebrating milestones ranging from 20 to 50 years at its annual Associate Anniversary Luncheon at the Thayer Hotel in West Point, N.Y., on June 8. The large group of ShopRite store associates who attended amassed a collective total of 5,405 years of company service.

Pavlich is manager at the ShopRite of Middletown, N.Y. He started as a part-time food clerk and quickly worked his way up.

He is a Vietnam War veteran and is actively involved with Vietnam War Veterans of America (VVA) Charter 140, and the VFW Post 160. He has also been a volunteer firefighter for Port Jervis House Co. No. 6 since the age of 18.

“We are proud that so many of our store associates have found a long-term home with ShopRite – which we believe is a major contributor to our overall success as a company,” said Brett Wing, president, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc. “It is team members like Edward that help us deliver the exceptional customer service that our customers have grown to expect from ShopRite on a daily basis. On behalf of our entire organization, I would like to thank each and every one of these employees for their hard work and dedication over the years and look forward to working together for years to come.”
