Arkansas Baptist buys out Payless store, inspires town

ALMA, Ark. (BP) -- Carrie Jernigan recently took her kids shoe shopping for an upcoming family vacation when her daughter, Harper, brought a pair of Avenger shoes to her. Harper had noticed a friend from school had shoes that were too tight and had holes, and she asked her mom if they could buy the shoes for him. "I said,'Yes,' but I looked down and I could tell they were small," said Jernigan, an attorney for Settle Jernigan Law in Fayetteville, Ark., and member of Kibler Baptist Church in nearby Alma. "I just jokingly said to the clerk, 'Looks like I may have to buy out all the shoes.'"
