Is she the nation’s oldest hardware store employee?

BY HBSDealer Staff

Millie Feasel began working at Zettler Hardware in Southwest Columbus Ohio sometime in the 1950s. Today, she’s 99 years old, and she’s still helping out.

According to Columbus-based WSYX/WTTE news, Feasel continues to work as a cashier 20 hours a week at the store. Why does she do it? She said she likes to get out of the house.

Not surprisingly, the active and committed senior citizen advises young people in the business to work hard every day. She also offers for those seeking the secret to long life: “Try not to worry too much.”

Zettler Hardware, a member of Do it Best Corp., is a long-time community presence in its own right. The store dates back to 1844.
