The place was fabulous Las Vegas. The crowd was cheering. The music was blaring. The “Great Blake Westling” was in the spotlight.

Every year, the best of the best grocery baggers from 24 states across the country gather in Las Vegas for an intense showdown of their bagging skills. This year’s event marked the 4th time in 5 years Lunds and Byerly’s represented Minnesota at nationals.

Blake Westling competed for Lunds and Byerly’s this year at the National Bagging Championship. He has worked at Byerly’s Eagan for five years and has been a part of our local Lunds and Byerly’s competition every year. In 2011, Blake won the Minnesota Bagging Championship and earned his position in the national spotlight.
