For 70 families in Haleyville, AL, this Christmas gift may come as a total surprise when they visit Wal*Mart to pick up their layaway gifts before Christmas.  After seeing a similar story on a network news channel, a local area man, who wishes to remain anonymous, walked into the Haleyville Wal*Mart Friday morning and paid off 70 layaway accounts at the Haleyville store. According to a store manager, one unidentified woman who came into pick up her gifts broke down into tears when she found out that her layaway had been paid for, saying "it was either pay the layaway or pay the bills.  Now I can pay the bills."
