For residents who put items on layaway at the Wal-Marts in Swatara and Silver Spring townships it’s a welcome surprise.
A man, known as “Santa B” to customers, paid for about $180,000 worth of layaway items between the two stores. The same man was responsible for paying off $50,000 worth of layaways at the Silver Spring Township Wal-Mart last year.
Wal-Mart received a call on Friday from “Santa B’s” office asking about the total cost of layaway items. On Monday, the man came in with a $79,000 check, Myers said.
