I worked at this HEB store for 4 years while I was in college (graduated from UHV in 2004). Gus is a good guy and I wish him all the best.
I used to live on the farNorth Side, rode to the South Side to shop with people like Gus. He made us feel like he appreciated us being there. Most people in the N.Side Navarro store seem to think that they are the reason the store is there.No wonder the S. Side store profited, with men like him there.
"He's always been there for everybody," - This is also the type of neighbor we enjoy. He is there for anyone who needs help. Sometimes he does the work with you and sometimes he does it on the sly. He is a blessing to all who encounter him.
Good luck in your retirement Mr. Kroos, you certainly deserve to take it easy for a while.
You helped me out by cashing an out of town check for me way back when. I had forgotten my wallet and only had a checkbook on me that day.
