BRIDLEY (AP) — Christmas came early for shoppers who placed presents on layaway at a Pennsylvania Kmart.

A secret Santa paid off some of the balances at the Ridley Township store. Employees say he's done that every Christmas for several years and specifically asks to pay off those with toys and other Christmas presents.

Vanessa Dimento tells WPVI-TV she started crying when she was told her $300 balance was paid. Dimento says it's a nice thing especially for the holidays.
