Store accepts a 25-year-old gift certificate

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts pop culture store has honored a 25-year-old gift certificate.

Sierra Wales, assistant manager at That's Entertainment in Worcester, says a longtime customer recently brought in the $10 gift certificate bought in 1989.

She tells The Republican newspaper (http://bit.ly/1mO9p9V ) that the gift certificate had been sitting in a drawer for years. The customer had been meaning to bring it in for some time and finally remembered over the Fourth of July weekend.

She noted that the gift certificate was older than most employees and had actually been bought at the store's old location.

The customer used it to buy a graphic novel.

The 34-year-old business sells comic books, graphic novels, toys, sports memorabilia, music and other pop culture items.

Wales says, "When we say it never expires, we really mean it."
