It's a special day for a longtime employee at a downtown Wausau bookstore.
Marion Zahrt, a clerk and buyer at Janke Book Store, is celebrating 60 years on the job. She says she's worked at the store since 1953 for three generations of Janke's.
The store's co-owner says over the years, Zahrt has become part of the family.
"I love the customers," said Zahrt. "I love helping them, and I just have a wonderful time."
To celebrate Marion Zahrt's 60 years of loyalty, the store held an ice cream party Wednesday in her honor.
