ARCADIA, Calif. -

Age isn't stopping this 99-year-old man -- he's still happily employed!

His name is Ted Dinunzio and he's the only greeter employed by Nordstrom.

Dinunzio retired from being a meat cutter in the 1980s the help his wife who was suffering from cancer.

After she passed away, Dinunzio realized he needed a way to stay connected.

So after the Westfield Santa Anita Mall opened in 1994, it didn't take long before Dinunzio was hired.

"They say, 'Can you help me?' I say, 'By all means, that's what I'm here for."

 "When you get old, you gotta keep moving around. You can't just sit down and watch TV," he said.  "Be nice to people, so they can come back."

Dinunzio turns 100 this December 30.
