Beyonce decided to bring some holiday cheer to unsuspecting Walmart shoppers this past Friday in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. The Daily News reports that the 32 year old songstress showed up around 7 p.m. with friends, and made her way through the store pushing a shopping cart. She then gifted every customer present with a $50 gift card, which came to a total of $37,500 for 720 people.
Earlier this week, Target announced they would not carry Beyonce’s self-titled album, because of her decision to release it online first. Erica Julkowski, a spokesperson for the retail giant explained: “At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections.”
To date, Beyonce’s album has sold over 1 million units over iTunes.
