Eighty-year-old Lorna King started out as a meat-packer in 1970. Forty-six years later, she still works at the same store, New World Green Bay, Auckland, now being in charge of the bread and confectionery department. King says that her secret to staying young is working, so she doesn't intend to retire anytime soon, ‘not until I’m carried out.’
“She’s the most positive person you’ll ever meet, and she’s an absolute pleasure to have in the store,” said Clive Webber, owner-operator of NW Green Bay.
