A Mystery Woman Walked Into A Toys R Us And Paid Off Everyone's Layaway Balance
December 13, 2014
A Toys R Us store in Bellingham, Mass., had to call over 150 customers and let them know they can come pick up their layaway gifts - a complete stranger paid for them.
The mystery woman walked into the store and paid off the store's entire layaway balance - a total of $20,000.
Described by employees as a bubbly older woman and a local, she offered the store manager a hug and reportedly said, "If you have it, give it."
One employee said the woman told her that knowing the layaway purchases were taken care of would help her "sleep better at night."
The Milford Daily News spoke to a customer whose tab was paid this week. The woman - who only gave her first name, Linda - said she only had $9 when she went holiday shopping for her two boys.
"I thought, 'You have to be kidding me,'" she said. "I almost wanted to cry. It was only $50, but to me that's a lot of money, and that someone would go and do that gave me chills.
"What she did was so caring and thoughtful," Linda added. "I feel like I was part of something special – touched by an angel."
