Love reading about supporters letting it be known ... x9qom.html

Mr Gruner is both happy and sad to retire, saying "everything has to come to an end," but he won't miss getting up at 4am, six days a week.

He plans to study computers, go to the gym, and watch more St Kilda games.

He paid tribute to his late parents Endre​ and Rose, Hungarian Jews who narrowly survived World War II.

Endre was forced to remove land mines in Russia, while in 1944, Rose was carrying two-year-old Peter on a Nazi march to a concentration camp when they were picked up in a car by Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Jews by issuing false passports.

In 1957, the family escaped communism in Hungary by emigrating to Australia.

The Gruners borrowed heavily to buy the St Kilda shop, and worked very hard. Endre would go to the Carlton abattoir at 4am, and Rose opened the shop by 6am.
