In 1980, Lloyd was 15 and homeless, sleeping in a park for five days. He took an overnight factory job and went to school during the day. After his third shift, walking by St-Viateur at 3 a.m., Myer asked what he was doing out so early every morning. He offered Lloyd a job on the spot, a job Lloyd credits with saving his life: 13-hour days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so he could stay in school.
Later, Myer would offer Lloyd the day shift, which he happily accepted. He’d soon discover that the “day shift” was 3 a.m. to 4 p.m. six days a week
