Waterloo Region Record - - Arts & Life -

Tyler Perry knows how to wish his At­lanta neigh­bours a Merry Christ­mas — the film­maker paid off all the cus­tomers’ items held on lay­away at two lo­cal Wal­mart stores. Perry, 49, an­nounced the hol­i­day lay­away-give­away on In­sta­gram Thurs­day. The As­so­ci­ated Press re­ported Perry paid $434,000 in bills to free up the cus­tomers’ items held with a de­posit at two At­lanta-area stores. Then he said, pick ’em up. “If you have a lay­away at ei­ther place and it was in there as of 9:30 this morn­ing. Then I have paid for all of your lay­aways for Christ­mas. So Merry Christ­mas,” said the grin­ning Perry. “I know it’s hard times and a lot of peo­ple are strug­gling,” Perry ex­plained. “I’m just re­ally re­ally grate­ful to be able to be in a sit­u­a­tion to do this. So God bless you. Go get your stuff.”
