A participant in the 10th anniversary takes the day off from work to attend the 100th anniversary festivities.

He's still working two days a week stocking shelves at Andronico's, an upscale supermarket in San Francisco.
"I enjoy what I do," said the centenarian, who introduced himself with a firm handshake on a recent Thursday morning. His tie is perfectly knotted, his green apron crisp.
