After spending over an hour picking his items and another hour queuing, the young boy realised he’d lost the voucher.

“He’d had it when we first lined up and he’s somehow dropped it out of his pocket,” dad Steven said.

Luckily, they had staff member Tah-Nee Beard who didn’t hesitate in processing the sale anyway, giving Jordan his items for free.

“As his dad went to look for it, I just processed the sale. I felt sorry for him,” she said.

While Jordan was stoked with the haul, his dad was especially grateful for the bigger lesson at play.

“They were able to give him something that I’ve been trying to give him his entire life and that’s the lesson of giving,” Steven said.

The family trekked down from their Logan home to thank the staff for their generosity and the owners gave Jordan some specially branded items that are not for sale in store on his return.

“It made me feel so happy,” Jordan said.
