95-year old retires from Target after 45 years on the job...

Talk about dedication! A 95-year-old Bloomington, Minnesota woman is retiring from Target after 45 years on the job. According to Minneapolis CBS station WCCO, Jeanne Brouillet started with the company as a cashier in 1968 at a Target store in Bloomington. She moved to the Edina location in 1973 where she’s worked ever since.

“I’ll miss the public,” Brouillet said. “I’m a people person.” She’s has done everything from sales to samples. She decided to retire on Oct. 28, because it was the same day she started 45 years ago. “If you don’t use it you lose it, so I have kept on using it and have enjoyed every minute of it,” Brouillet said.

The Edina Super Target hosted a party in Brouillet’s honor this past Monday. “She’s set an example for the whole family, and I mean it’s really amazing,” said Richard Brouillet, Jeanne’s son. “You’ve got to enjoy what you’re doing and put your heart into it,” Jeanne Brouillet added.

Now that she's retired, Brouillet plans to spend more time with her family. But she says she’ll continue to do all of her shopping at Target.
