LISBON, Conn. – A man says he was told to leave a Connecticut Wal-Mart Saturday when employees discovered him handing out $10 gift cards to unsuspecting strangers.
Barry Goldberg said he bought $1,300 worth of $10 dollar gift cards at the Wal-Mart in Lisbon and as a gesture of goodwill, he started handing them out to customers in the store lobby.
“I figured let me see if I can’t make a difference in peoples’ lives, for the better,” Goldberg said. “A lot of people couldn’t believe that there’s actually people that exist in this world that are actually going to share in a random act of generosity and not look for anything in return.”
After a half hour, a store manager told him to leave, Goldberg said. So he went out into the parking lot and handed them out there until he was asked to leave the property by store officials.
A Wal-Mart spokesman confirmed the incident, saying it was not an official "Wal-Mart promotion."
