State Senators Tim Schaffer (R–Lancaster) and Troy Balderson (R–Zanesville) today jointly honored “Ohio’s Best Bagger” in the retail grocery industry at the Statehouse. Sarah Morris, an employee at the Lancaster Giant Eagle, will now travel to Las Vegas, Nevada where she will compete against other “Best Baggers” from around the country for the national crown.
“It’s always great to see local young people succeeding on the state and national stage,” said Balderson. “I look forward to seeing Sarah make Lancaster proud at the national competition next month.”

The Best Bagger Contest is sponsored by the Ohio Grocers' Association, a trade organization representing the state's grocery industry.
“As a fellow Lancaster resident, I will certainly be looking for Sarah’s checkout lane at the grocery store,” said Schaffer. “Of course, Lancaster grocery stores clearly have high customer service standards since both of the top point earners were from our town.”
Should Morris win the national competition, she will receive a $10,000 grand prize from the National Grocers Association.
