HASTINGS, Mich (WZZM) -- The "Layaway Santa" has returned!
An anonymous person wrote a $10,000 check to pay off all 43 layaway accounts at the Walmart Supercenter in Hastings.
About $7,800 went towards merchandise, while the other $2,200 will go to a Barry County charity.
The "Layaway Santa" movement began last year when someone began paying off customers' accounts at the Kmart in Plainfield Township. Soon other Santa's began playing off strangers' accounts at other stores in West Michigan and the rest of the country.
