Tyler Perry Pays Off Everyone’s layaway At Walmart For Christmas – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire tis' the season for giving! It's truly the greatest gift of all One things for sure, Tyler Perry took that sentiment to another level yesterday(Thursday Dec. 6, 2018) and gave everyone with a layaway at two Walmarts in the ATL, the ultimate Christmas gift. PageSix reports the iconic star literally paid-off ALL of their Christmas layaways!
Everybody that had items on layaway at the East Point (844 Cleveland Avenue) Walmart in Fulton Country, or in Douglasville (7001 Concourse Parkway) got the surprise of their lives when they found out all they owed was 1 penny on their bill. Perry was trying to do anonymously, but some folks can't hold water, so the news got out pretty quick.
After his cover was blown, the famous entertainer went on his Twitter page to confirm the news was real saying the bills were paid, "go get your stuff! Merry Christmas!"
Now that's what I'm talking about! Best thing about it, he tripled his own blessings in the process. Channel 2 Action News reported the legendary filmmaker spent roughly $434,000 to pay off all the Walmart layaways. All customers had to do, was pay one cent to pick up the items. Pretty incredible right?!?!
This type of thing happens every now and then, said Shameka a manager at the Walmart in Douglasville. She explained to Channel 2 that their store has around 1,000 layaway accounts during the holidays. The manager added it was common for good Samaritans to come in and pay-off a random layaway or two, but she never saw a person pay-off their entire layaway department. Guess there's a first time for everything.
Shameka said of Perry's good deed, "I was shocked. It shows that we know there's still good people in the world." Wow! Shout-out to Tyler Perry for giving such a wonderful gift to so many! Merry Christ-mas everyone.
