KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — A Secret Santa made the holiday season a little brighter for hundreds of shoppers near Philadelphia after paying off nearly $30,000 worth of layaways at a Walmart.

Andy Rumford, of Kennett Square, tells The Daily Local he was shocked when he went to make a payment at the East Marlborough location and found out someone had picked up the tab.

A Walmart official tells the newspaper the person who paid off the accounts wants to remain anonymous.

Rumford owned about $150 on his items and went to pick them up on Saturday. The cashier told him someone came in and wrote a $29,000 check to pay off all the items on layaway in the whole store.

Rumford says “something like this makes you want to reach out and do good for others.”

One thought on “Secret Santa Pays Off Nearly $30K In Walmart Layaways

  1. Rumford it’s called paying it forward. These days I see it in action all the time. Someone is at the checkout, and their credit card doesn’t go thru, or they’re short on cash…..and someone behind them handles it. Awwwh….so there is hope for the world. LOL
