“Happy Holidays from Beyoncé”

On 20 December 2013, singer Beyoncé Knowles, age 32, visited a Walmart in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, where she gave everyone a $50 Walmart gift card. Beyoncé gave away 750 cards — that’s $37,500 worth of gift cards! Each gift card was enclosed in an envelope marked “Happy Holidays from Beyoncé.” At Walmart, she purchased a copy of her own latest release, Beyoncé, and some toys for her 23-month-old daughter: Blue Ivy. Beyoncé is married to Jay-Z. Walmart spokeswoman Sarah McKinney said, “It was amazing, quite a scene. Everybody was so excited when she came in, and it’s so great what she did for our customers right before Christmas.” She added, “We were all surprised that she stopped by, but it was great. We’re really glad she dropped in before her concert in Boston. It was a treat.” Phoebe Chase, a customer who received a gift card, took a photograph of Beyoncé in Walmart and posted it on Twitter. Ms. Chase wrote this caption for the photograph: “So I decided to stop at a Walmart in suburban Massachusetts. Who knew I’d run into Beyoncé?” At Walmart, Beyoncé held a little girl and said to her, “Hi, beautiful.”
