If you stop by the ShopRite in Flemington, New Jersey, a piece of American history might bag your groceries.

"We give you service with a smile," Archie Fagan says.  "We are the best store in town."

He is 91 and full of life. The supermarket employee sold his business in 1989, so he doesn't have to work but he wants to so for the past 24 years, he's worked the aisles of the grocery store, 40 hours a week.

"I'm not one to retire, it's not in my forecast," he said.

Fagan was born in Philadelphia. His parents were Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe. They spoke German and Yiddish at home, which helped when he joined the Army to fight in World War II.

"I was able to interrogate German prisoners so I was put in Army intelligence," Fagan says.
