Cashier’s simple act of kindness leaves profound impact on Ohio family seeing tough time

A simple act of kindness by a cashier at a local store has left profound impact on an Ohio family going through a difficult time this holiday season. It happened when past weekend Kimberly Grandinette visited a Meijer store in Springfield, Ohio, along with her 3-year-old son, Paul, for picking up some groceries.

A post on Facebook went viral this week, in which Grandinette described how they’d visited the store while en route to the hospital, where her infant baby son, Remington, was under treatment for an immune and kidney disorder.

When they were at the check-out counter, the mom shared the story of her family with an employee ringing up their groceries, Kristen Clark.

Grandinette wrote in her post, “I was telling cashier that my infant son is in hospital and my 3-year-old is having rough time with all changes in routine and changes at home it is causing. Then my 3-year-old asked Kristen if he could help her ring our groceries”.

The mother said that the thing that happened next warmed her heart, leaving her in a moment of awe. The employee Clark called Paul to come behind the register and help her in scanning the coupons.

While speaking to ABC News, Grandinette said that the employee had him on her hip and showed him how to scan the bar code. The mother mentioned that it was a really sweet gesture of the employee, and that her son loved it.
