Here at Jewel-Osco, we like to recognize our hardworking associates! Every month, we will have a Tuesday Toast, spotlighting one of these great employees!  We wanted to honor someone who is not only a hard working Jewel-Osco employee, but also someone that was able to move into various roles through 25 years here!

This month, we are toasting Alura Stewart, a Center Store Operations Specialist in the O’Hare district! Alura started with us in 1994 and has worked her way up the Jewel ladder. Alura has been in 12 positions since starting here, and has enjoyed every single one of them. She started as a Deli Manager in 1993 and became almost every possible role that we offer here at Jewel.

Alura successfully completed her undergrad at Northern Illinois University and also received her MBA from University of Phoenix.

Alura is a people person, she enjoys working with people. The best part about her is her enthusiasm within the company. She truly loves what she does.

She quotes “I have come across many people that have taught me to be a better me.”

Check back every month to see who we’re toasting to! Cheers to Alura and all of her accomplishments!
