Another Secret Santa! Someone pays $49,000 of Walmart layaways
MILLVILLE — Another Secret Santa has come forward at a New Jersey Walmart store to payoff customer layaway orders.
Store manager Rosie Kaur told the Courier Post the man paid off 223 layaway orders for a total of $49,000, and only described him as a "local businessman" who wants to remain anonymous.
Walmart spokeswoman Tara Aston confirmed the payoff.
“When customers quietly pay off others’ layaway items, we’re reminded how good people can be. The joy that comes from these transactions extends well beyond dollars and cents. We’re honored to be a small part of these random acts of kindness," Aston said.
Customer Kimberly Green posted the surprise on her Facebook page with a picture of her checkout that read, "paid out by a good samaritan."
"Thank you again whom ever you are. My family is grateful for your act of kindness. May God bless you and your family," Green wrote.
The Millville Walmart is the latest to get a visit from a generous shopper. Another anonymous visitor paid off Brittany Reed's lawyaway at the Sears store in Middletown.
Charles Kartsaklis, the CEO and founder of Code Green Solar, was unmasked as the not-so-secret Santa who paid off nearly $11,000 worth of layaways at the Toys R Us in Cherry Hill.
