SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

A former Sharonville shoplifter comes clean 30 years later with a big gift for the less fortunate.

A few weeks ago, Ron Boire, the president of Kmart, received an anonymous letter accompanied with a money order in the amount of $1,000 from a customer in the Cincinnati area.

The letter was an apology from the customer for not paying for some items he had taken about 30 years ago from a Sharonville Kmart.

Taking a cue from the good intentions of this customer and the "layaway angels" popping up around the country, Kmart has decided to pay it forward and plans to use the money to pay off some customer layaways at the Hunt Road store sometime next week.

This is a great story to share on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest this holiday season!
