Beyoncé spread a little holiday cheer yesterday when she showed up to a local Walmart.
Not only were fans delighted by Bey’s presence, but she took it a step further and bought 750 shoppers $50 gift cards. That amounts to $37,500!
She even got on the loudspeaker and announced:
“It’s Beyoncé. I stopped by the store today because my record just arrived. I want to send everyone a little gift. For everyone in the storeright now, the first $50 of your holiday gifts are on me. Merry, merry Christmas from Beyoncé.”
Is this Beyoncé’s way of sending a message to Target? The Walmart competitor is refusing to stock Beyoncé’s new album on shelves, so the timing of Bey’s surprise trip does seem a little too coincidental.
It should also be noted that you can’t hold a good girl down, because while Target is refusing to carry Beyoncé’s album, she’s shipped it to over 7000 Starbucks locations across the country — and a lot of Starbucks are located inside of Target stores!
