How do I make these duties less boring on resume?

I have been unemployed for almost 6 months now. Tomorrow there is a job fair for a local grocery store that I am going to. It is nowhere near the ideal job that I want, but its seeming like my only option. Anyway, when I was 15 and 16 I worked at kroger over the summer. I was only a Courtesy Clerk, but since it was at a grocery store, I wanna put it on my resume. My duties were: Collecting carts from the parking lot Bagging customers groceries Occasionally helping customers out to their cars Running price checks on items Returning unwanted items back to their proper shelves Making sure bathrooms and the front of the store were kept clean I know this is bad of me, but I honestly dont know how to explain those duties any other way than I just did. I dont really want to put it like that on my resume because I fear it may hurt my chances by looking too juvenile. How can I spice it up? This wont be my only job on my resume though. My last job I was a supervisor at a mom pop store for a year and 8 months, and before that I worked in fast food. Both of those I have full and detailed job descriptions. Like I said, I just want to add the grocery store history to it to increase my chances since It is a similar environment.
