Barry Palazzo has been a productive and successful employee at Shaw's Supermarket in Wakefield for over 10 years and is currently working between 18-22 hours a week. Upon entering Shaw's, Barry's smiling face and pleasant demeanor is often the first thing customers are greeted by and the last thing they experience as Barry loads their purchases in the cart and wishes them a great day.
Barry's dream was to one day work at Shaw's and making that dream a reality has had a positive impact not only on Barry but those who surround him. Barry lives in his own apartment in North Kingstown and his work has afforded him the luxuries of living independently, numerous vacations, and the opportunity to purchase Blu-Ray movies and expand his collection. When speaking to Barry about job and what it means to him his genuine joy is evident. Barry hopes to one day save enough money to marry his longtime girlfriend and hopes to remain a valued employee of Shaw's until his retirement.
