Have no fear, the new Save-On-Foods manager said his cardboard cutout will be arriving soon.

Manager Randall Bamford didn’t bring his from Salmon Arm.

“They are popular for scavenger hunts and mine was a pretty beaten up,” he chuckled.

Bamford replaced former manager Mark Law who retired at the end of January.

He arrived on Feb. 17 and said he was excited to return to Williams Lake.

Bamford lived here when he was a teenager, attending Anne Stevenson junior high and graduating from Columneetza Secondary in 1983.

“So when the job came up I thought, Williams Lake’s a good town,” Bamford said.

Having been with Save-On for 26 years, Bamford has worked for the company in Victoria, Chilliwack, Kelowna, Squamish and most recently, Salmon Arm.

His wife Dawn is from Chilliwack. Their son Mitchell, 6, goes to Chilcotin Road elementary school.

“I still know lots of people in town I knew when I lived here before so it’s been an easy transition for us,” he said.

Two and half months into the job, Bamford has nothing but praise for his staff.

“They are great people and they like doing what they do. A lot of them have been here for a while.”

Because the store’s always been connected to the community, he’s only having to keep the partnerships going.

On Saturday, May 10, Save-On will host a Rancher’s Appreciation stock salt sale, while 4H will sell beef on a bun and offer a petting zoo.
