Secret Santa pays off layaways in Goldsboro

Posted: Updated:

While frantic holiday shopping continued Sunday at a Goldsboro Wal-Mart, a lucky few have some extra cash in their pocket.

Customers say a random Secret Santa paid off a handful of Christmas layaways.

Wal-Mart wouldn't say how many layaway accounts were paid off; but customers say a number doesn't matter, it's the gesture that counts.

"I would love it. It would be a blessing," one shopper said if she was one of those who benefited.

Another woman had just paid her layaway but wasn't among the chosen few.

"I wish I was!," she said. "It would help a lot."

"There's a lot of people that need help," another customer added.

Wal-Mart said this is something that seems to happen every year or so -- someone stepping up to make Christmas brighter for others.
