PEOPLE LEFT IN TEARS AFTER MYSTERY PERSON PAYS OFF ,000 IN CHRISTMAS LAYAWAY CHARGES AT WALMART
An Anonymous 'Secret Santa' Paid Off ,000 in Layaway at Walmart
A whopping 194 holiday shoppers received a surprise of a lifetime at a Walmart in Everett, Pennsylvania this season. CNN reports that the store received a call from an anonymous "Santa B," who offered to pay for the whole store's layaway items—a whopping ,265.59.
Store manager Ryan Kennedy spoke to the benefactor on the phone, and then "Santa B" had another person come and drop off the check. "It was complete disbelief," Kennedy told CNN. "It was definitely a great gesture. I was completely shocked." Kennedy and his coworkers then started calling the nearly 200 people with layaway accounts to tell them the good news; he said some of them started crying tears of joy.
"Well, my daughter played the message before I got there," shopper Christa Morton told WJAC. "I asked if anyone called. She said, 'You're going to want to hear the message for yourself, so I said, 'Am I going to be upset or mad?' and she said, 'It's going to make you cry.' So I walked upstairs and it was Walmart saying that our Christmas layaway can be picked up and that it was completely paid for."
According to CNBC, this was the third time that a "Santa B" has paid off layaway accounts at Walmarts in the state. This year's donation was the largest a Walmart store has received this holiday shopping season. "When customers quietly pay off others' layaway items, we're reminded how good people can be," the company said in a statement.
