Man Buys K-Mart Store and Gives Everything Inside Away

There’s philanthropy and then there’s THIS guy.

Facebook, K-Mart

Rankin Paynter, a successful businessman from Kentucky, had a rough time when he was growing up. “It was hard sometimes.  I tied rags around my feet sometimes. I only had summer slippers.”

Even with that humbling upbringing, it still came as a shock when he purchased every last bit of inventory from a Kmart store that was two days away from closing for good and gave it all way to a local charity.

Mr. Paynter spent $200,000 to buy everything from clothes to office supplies.

“To be honest with you, I could have made $30,000-$40,000 on it.  It’s bad nowadays. I just told (the clerk) let’s just give it away to charity.”

His donation to Clark County Community Services was the biggest donation they have ever recieved.

Can you say “hero”?
