Yes, Macy’s is full of surprises this holiday season. I was asked by my friends at Savings.com to surprise a Macy’s shopper with $100 toward their purchase. I was really nervous!
I’ve never done anything like this before and each time I pictured myself doing it, my heart started to race. I had to keep pushing all the “what if” scenarios away and remind myself, this was about blessing someone else and that if I appeared nervous, they might think I was a total weirdo. “Stay calm, Lori. You can do this. Don’t blow the opportunity to do a really nice thing,” was my mantra.
Have you ever surprised someone like this?
I went to my local Macy’s at the Brea, CA mall last Sunday. Some of the store workers were scoping me out. I must have looked nervous. I took some time to settle down and started watching the shoppers. I did not want to approach anyone who looked unapproachable and I did not want to approach a group of people.
Finally, I settled on a lovely young woman who was looking at gifts and carefully looking at prices in the cosmetics area. I approached her without trying to startle her. I just said “hi, my name is Lori. I have been asked to bless someone with $100 toward their holiday purchase today and I would like to choose you.”
I gave her a minute to digest the information and she said “really”? and then “wow”. Her eyes teared up a bit and so did mine. She said she was trying to stretch her dollars as she had a lot of family members to buy for. I reassured her that I know exactly what she means. It’s tough to find affordable gifts that people will love and that Macy’s is one of my favorite go-to places as well.
Although you may not always find someone willing to help pay for your purchases, you will always find great gift ideas and deals at Macy’s. In the section where I met Yvonne, there was a wonderful display of mini fragrance gift sets you can get for less than $50.
