On November 18th, 2021, Dave Peak donned his Giant uniform for the last time. His final shift at the supermarket in Westminster, Maryland, was bittersweet for the 46-year-old Carroll County native. On one hand he was excited to be retiring after 25 years, and on the other, he was sad to be leaving his coworkers and customers whom he was going to miss, and who were going to miss him, his warm smile, and good-naturedness.
The send-off at Giant in November was an emotional one. Gathered were family, friends, customers, coworkers, and managers who had worked with him over the years.
