CREATED Dec. 22, 2013
Attention Walmart shoppers: Beyonce' is in the house.
Shoppers at a Tewksbury, Mass., Walmart got a big surprise Dec. 20 when pop star Beyonce' paid a visit to the store. She was in town to play a concert that night at Boston's TD Garden, and stopped by the store beforehand to do a little Christmas shopping, including picking up a copy of her own new album, reports The Boston Globe's Boston.com and The Huffington Post.
While checking out, Beyonce' grabbed the store's intercom to wish everyone happy holidays, and then handed out 750 $50 gift cards totaling $37,500. Each gift card envelope read, "Happy Holidays from Beyoncé."
"It was amazing, quite a scene," Walmart spokeswoman Sarah McKinney told local Fox affiliate WGHP. "Everybody was so excited when she came in, and it's so great what she did for our customers right before Christmas."
