(Newser) – A New Jersey convenience store executive has fulfilled his Christmas tradition of working in one of the company's stores for the 40th consecutive year. QuickChek Senior Vice President Mike Murphy worked Friday at a store in Mount Arlington. Murphy says he's always felt he should work the holiday since many of the employees have to. He served coffee and cleaned inside and outside the store during his five-hour shift. Murphy says coffee and batteries are the top two products for customers to pick up on Christmas morning. The store is run by one of his sons. According to the company's website, it has 140 stores in New York and New Jersey.
