When a local supermarket closes, locals line up to help. The sad story of the store owner, whose wife is battling terminal cancer and has to take care of their young children, is known.

[좋은 일 많을 거예요 사장님. 사모님 건강하실 거예요.]

On the 24th, an acquaintance posted the story of the store owner to a local cafe.

“My aunt is in the hospital with terminal breast cancer, and the business is shutting down because of her children who were left alone at home.”

The store, which is about to close at the end of this month, said the owner has one wish.

The goal was to sell as many items as possible that could not be returned before the business closed, because they needed money to pay the companies that supplied them.

As the sad story became known, the neighbors began to search for the mart.

Photos and encouraging texts of items piled up in a pile saying they bought it at the store came up one after another.

wish came true.

Instead of running out of items and the store was empty, the owner’s heart was filled with gratitude for his neighbors.

[손병철/가게 사장 : 너무 감사한 마음이고, 그 다른 어떤 말로 설명하기가 힘들 만큼….]
