Stockton man wins best bagger in Illinois competition, to compete nationally

STOCKTON (WREX) — A worker at Sullivan’s Foods in Stockton has been dubbed the best bagger in the state.

Stephen Benson won the Illinois Food Retailers Convention in Chicago last month. Benson qualified for the state competition after winning local competition.

Benson has competed for four years now, taking home second place the first two years and winning the competition last year.

The bagging competition scoring is rated on speed, weight distribution, bagging techniques, and the attitude and presentation of the bagger.

With the win in September, Benson will now compete at the national competition in San Diego of February 2020.
