Shopper Surprises Grocery Store Worker With Dream Guitar
A grocery store worker who has special needs couldn’t hide his delight when a regular customer at his store surprised him with his dream guitar. For the past few months, Chris Glover, 50, has been carrying out most of his family grocery shopping while wife, Jennifer, 38, is battling stage IV cancer so must isolate. And while at his local Publix in Orlando, Florida, Chris found a friend in Derek Woods, 27, who works at the store and the pair would often strike up a conversation. One day, Derek, who has special needs, asked Chris if he plays any instruments before revealing he was saving up to buy himself his dream guitar, a Gibson Les Paul. Every time Chris visited the store, he asked Derek if he’d been successful in his saving goals, but when the answer continued to be no, Chris decided to take matters into his own hands. Having consulted with Jennifer, Chris - a musician who has played music around Central Florida for a number of years - decided to order an Epiphone Les Paul Studio LT with a Sunburst finish online, which he planned to give to Derek as a surprise.
