Seattle Times letters to the editor

Holiday cheer

Paying it forward

I would like to give a big rave for the man shopping at Pike Place Market before Thanksgiving weekend. You were buying a birthday gift for your daughter at my jewelry booth and slipped me a note on your charge receipt pointing out a shoplifter.

Not only did your note help with retrieving what he stole from me, the guy had hit several small businesses in the Market.

We operate on a small profit margin and even a little theft is a big thing. You helped save our holiday season.

— Sara Chambers, Seattle
