This year the Gardena Valley Chamber of Commerce did something a little different for Christmas Day. On Dec. 20 and again, Christmas Day, Shoppers at the Gardena Food 4 Less on Artesia Boulevard had their grocery bill paid for.

Shoppers were selected according to what they had in their shopping cart, Chamber reps said. Then they were asked if they would allow theChamber representatives to pay for their groceries.

It took some convincingsince most shoppers did not believe that complete strangers wanted topay for their groceries, a Chamber official said.
