Beerbower Snapshot

Scott Beerbower

Age: 53

Home life: Two cats, “PJ” and “14,” brothers. Both are polydactyl, which means they have more than the standard five toes on each front paw. While PJ has six toes on his paws, the aptly named 14 has seven.

On why he enjoys the job of retail clerk at Safeway: “When I first got there, I loved the piece counts, the working for production, working with other people, meeting people who were older who had mental skills that outweighed people’s physical skills.”

Hourly wage when first hired at Safeway at age 19: $4.60 per hour.

Continuity: Scott is fourth generation East Grays Harbor County resident.
