Peggy Nesbit celebrates 50 years at Younkers
DES MOINES, Iowa -

Workers at Younkers in Merle Hay Mall celebrated a special anniversary Thursday.

Co-workers, family and friends honored Peggy Nesbit for her 50 years of work at the department store.

Nesbit said her love for working with people has never changed over the half century she's worked there, but just about everything else has changed.

"Things have changed, things got modern and it's just a whole different world since I started, but it's nice. You have to go with the times," said Nesbit.

Nesbit is one of three generations and one of five people in her family to work at the Merle Hay Mall Younkers store.
