The Sault Star - - WORLD NEWS -

KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. — 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 owed 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 cheque 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.”
