Beyoncé visits Walmart, gives shoppers gift cards

TEWKSBURY, Mass. — Pop star Beyoncé gave out $37,500 worth of gift cards to shoppers at a Massachusetts Walmart Friday night.

Lowellsun.com reported that the Grammy-award winning celebrity made the surprise appearance at Tewksbury’s Walmart before heading to Boston to perform a concert.

Beyoncé wished everyone a happy holiday and then gave out $50 Walmart gift cards to 750 customers.

“It was amazing, quite a scene,” said Walmart spokeswoman Sarah McKinney. “Everybody was so excited when she came in, and it’s so great what she did for our customers right before Christmas.

Beyoncé released her self-titled fifth album exclusively through iTunes earlier this month, which led to some retailers refusing to stock the CD version.

The 32-year-old pop singer is known for several hit songs including “Single Ladies” and “Halo.”
