At 95 years old, Sophie Salo has no plans to retire. Her interactions with friends, co-workers and mostly strangers at the Woodland Costco make her happy.
Salo has been working longer than most people, but when it comes to her favorite part of the job, she jokes she's just like the rest of us.
"Payday," Salo said with a smile.
She has several reasons for not making retirement plans and staying with her job.
"One reason is to be with people," Salo explained. "You get mentally slow if you stay home."
Salo has been living by herself since her husband passed away 10 years ago. She has three sons and six grandchildren. When she is not spending time with them, Salo goes on 2-mile walks with her dog.
Salo is well known and loved at her job. Her goal is to get you to try her samples and buy the product, and it works.
