Anonymous donor pays off layaway at Colorado Walmart

December 3, 2018

LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — Christmas came early for some shoppers at a Colorado Walmart.

KUSA-TV reports Walmart Inc. officials say an anonymous donor paid off all the layaway items at the Longmont store on East Ken Pratt Boulevard.

A company spokesperson says the donation totaled nearly $45,000.

A mystery donor last week paid off all of the Christmas layaway items at a Walmart in Uniondale, New York. Another donor did the same last month at a Walmart in Derby, Vermont.

Layaway allows shoppers to pay for their items in increments over time. The items remain in stores until they are completely paid off.
