SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) - Marilyn Duporte, a longtime employee of Cannegie Liquor Store, retired at the end of August after 31 years of service to the company.
“Marilyn was hired as cashier in 1987 and has been a faithful loyal employee for all these years.
“Those who frequent Front Street and have been customers over the years are quite familiar with Marilyn's smiling face and friendly greeting upon entering the store.
“Over the years Marilyn not only functioned as a cashier but also as a salesperson. As she says, she knows enough about liquor that she could open her own liquor store.
“Management and staff of Cannegie Liquor Store held a farewell party for Marilyn on Friday. Owner and Manager, Diederick Cannegieter, presented her with a certificate of appreciation and thanked her for her many years of service,” Cannegie Liquor Store said in a statement on Monday.
