KINGSTON, Jamaica — A woman who lost most of her daughter's back to school supplies is now breathing a sigh of relief after the items were recovered in time for her daughter to begin a new year in High School.

Two Fridays ago the woman and her teenage daughter entered the Kingston Bookshop in the Springs Plaza on Constant Spring Road and handed a female employee a bag containing her daughter's school shoes, books and other supplies that she had just purchased.

When the woman had completed doing business inside the store and attempted to retrieve her belongings, she was told that the bag was mistakenly given to another customer who had long gone. The distraught mother was at her wits end. She had no idea how she was going to find money to replace the school supplies which were so essential to her daughter's educational progress.

After a few twists and turns by the confused mother a store supervisor Jerome McKenzie stepped in and promised that woman that she would be compensated if the bag was not returned.

As fate would have it, the bag was returned by an honest customer who, upon reaching home, realized that the contents of the bag did not belong to her.

"The woman was contacted and she got back her bag with everything in it. All's well that ends well," McKenzie told the Jamaica Observer.
