Mom Praises Best Buy Employees Who Went Above And Beyond For Her Autistic Son

Brittany Rae 19 Nov 2020

Sometimes, a simple gesture of kindness is all it takes to make someone's day. That's exactly what a team of Best Buy employees decided to do when one little boy's mother contacted the store inquiring about getting a Best Buy uniform for her son. Not only did they secure a uniform for him, the team went above and beyond to make this boy's dream come true.

He's an absolute cutie-patootie from Fort Wayne, Indiana. His biggest wish in the world is to one day work at Best Buy. I love his taste — who wouldn't want to be surrounded by cool technology all the time?

"He then had to scan everything because he was the worker."

Thankfully, Nicholas took the proper safety measures and stayed behind his acrylic divider while he checked out. What a good and safe little worker!
