Mystery Man Walks Into Store And Pays For Multiple Strangers' Groceries

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, CA- Shoppers at a discount grocery store got more than they bargained for in Concord, California.

A mystery man paid for everyone's groceries... With everyone wondering where he came from.

The man asked the manager at a Grocery Outlet Bargain Market if he could cover the cost of groceries.

Supervisor Jaime Flores says the man spent over $600 to pay the bills for about half a dozen shocked, but happy shoppers.

"We had people hugging him. People were asking him if he won the lottery, if he had a good job, but he didn't really want to give out any information," said Flores.

The experience has become a memory for Flores who asked the man why he was so giving.

"He replied with why not? Why not. He truly was a generous, humble person," said Flores.

Surveillance video did capture the mystery man in action, but store management is protecting that video and respecting the man's wishes to remain anonymous.
