WELL KNOWN CASHIER TO RETIRE

Leah Feay

After spending 20 years with Sav Mor Foods, well-known resident and former Quincy business owner Leah Feay is retiring. She and her husband of nearly 60 years, Terry, first came to Quincy in the mid 1980s when they purchased the El Torito Loco restaurant in East Quincy. Leah said she quickly learned how to “cook Mexican food on the fly” which she and Terry did successfully for 10 years before selling it to one of their employees. Leah decided she wasn’t quite ready to retire so she joined the north state grocery chain and soon became the market’s head clerk, a position she held until just a few years ago when she decided to cut back on hours.

Leah’s last day is Friday, Aug. 31. Be sure to stop by the East Quincy market and wish her the best in the years ahead. Leah, Keri and I certainly do!
