Christmas is just 22 days away, and undoubtedly a large number of people have rushed and overestimated their budgets and tried to figure out how to make a dollar out of 15 cents because they put together a Happy Christmas at family and friends.
For some people, the work of building a “perfect” Christmas – or part of it – begins in October or November with a trip to a store that has layaway. They choose their gifts, take them to the unloading desk, deposit a deposit and often return often – either weekly or every other week – to pay off the items before they can take them home.
Layaway has been a staple of low-income families forever, and Walmart knows the game very well. For a small payment of $ 10 or 10 percent, whichever is greater, Walmart will keep your items from early September to early December, so you can make deposits at any time to pay off the goods. And because they are so understanding, if you can not pay for your items before the deadline of December 10, the deal will return you all deposit money you paid to the point that the layout is set. However, you will not take the goods.
Customers at Kennett Square Walmart in Pennsylvania do not have to worry about making final payments on their goods – the money has already been taken care of.
A good samaritan called “Secret Santa” entered the store last and paid out every layaway account there for a total of $ 29,000, according to Philly.com.
Walmart said in a statement that “When customers pay quietly for someone else’s redundancy, we remind ourselves of how good people can be. We are honored to be a small part of these random acts.”
This is not the first The time that someone has paid for lay-out accounts at Walmart. In 2016 another secret Santa paid $ 166,000 in redundancy accounts and in 2017, another secret Santa paid nearly $ 100,000 in termination accounts. In 2015, a Secret Santa paid $ 500,000 to clear out expense accounts at Walmarts in three different states.
There are many families who will be pleased with the latest unexpected Christmas miracle.
