ZUMBROTA – When the doors of Hub Food Center opened in 1976, Beth Steberg was among the employees of the new grocery store. On Wednesday afternoon, August 21, a retirement party was held at the store to honor Steberg for her 37 years of dedicated service as she starts a different chapter of her life.

Steberg began working in the store three weeks prior to its opening. Over the years, she said, “I helped wherever I was needed.” Her roles included check-out and managing the front of the store. In addition to overseeing the candy department, she also ordered cigarettes, noting that now they don’t sell them anymore. A big change she remembers was the store’s addition that was built in 2000.

Steberg said the customers were the best part of the job because “they got to be my friends,” the result of working at one place so long. She added, “The retirement party was a fun afternoon to be able to see so many friends.”

As to her future plans, Steberg is “looking forward to be able to take it easy” in the rural Kenyon area where she and husband Owen live. She is excited and proud to be a first-time grandma soon, and planning to help their son and daughter-in-law, Tony and Lisa Becker, with daycare. Steberg said, “My parents always helped me out and now I can help them.”
