Duane suggested a reward. Connor, the manager, said no company policy. "He told me that even if I could give him (a reward), he wouldn't take it anyway, that that's the kind of kid he is," Duane said.

"They were really nice, looked all around the store for me," he said. "They have a surveillance system, but only the manager can open it, and she wouldn't be in until the morning."

In one motion, Brunelle scooped up the cash and took it to the customer service counter with instructions to put it in an envelope and set it aside until the unknown man came back for it.

"Suddenly, I remembered going to Prada Clutch Blue

"I remembered exactly what the kid on the register looked like," he said of Brunelle. When I walked in, he spotted me and smiled. I was going to shake his hand, but I couldn't help it, I just gave him a big bear hug," Duane said, laughing. "I had tears in my eyes. The girl on the register was choking up. I'm choking up just talking about it."

Teetering between blaming himself and falling into despair over his misfortune, Duane, finally satisfied that the missing bills weren't in his truck or house, raced back to his most recent stop, a convenience store/gas station near his house.

All was well until, hours after his early morning stop at Shaw's, Duane arrived home with plans to resume his shopping Saturday. "I did a little bit, but the Black Friday crowds were ridiculous, so I just went home," he said. "That's when I noticed it."

"I'd just opened on (register) 8," Brunelle said Monday. "He just had a few things, he paid with exact change. I said 'have a good day' and went over to these shelves," he said, pointing toward the displays that run along the front of the store near the Prada Double Bag Grey registers.

With nobody else in sight at the time, Brunelle assumed, correctly, that the first customer unknowingly dropped the greenbacks as he completed his purchase and headed to his car.

"It was just sitting right there on the floor," he said of the pile of cash $360 in all that seemed to magically appear between the time his first customer left and the next arrived.

Customers, except for the most regular of regulars, can easily become a blur over so many months. But one man in particular, who happened to be Brunelle's first customer early Black Friday morning, will surely stick in the 21 year old Merrimack resident's memory for quite some time even though he'd never seen the man before. .

After a fitful night, Duane met the manager first thing. They viewed the tape, but alas, it bore no signs of wayward dollar bills. Duane dragged himself back home, and that's when it hit him.

Duane, meanwhile, said Brunelle deserves all the praise he gets. "I would love it if people went in (to Shaw's) and shook his hand every day from now until Christmas," he said. "As I told the manager, 'Buddy, this is my Christmas dinner, my kids' presents and everything else."

Since the incident, Brunelle said co workers and plenty of others have asked the must ask question: "Did you ever think of just pocketing the money?"

As Brunelle went back to business as usual, a man named Duane was frantically tearing apart his truck and house while struggling to retrace his steps of the past few hours.

"I was blown away," Duane said, growing emotional. He jumped in his truck and raced over.

When the next customer reached the checkout, Brunelle turned, headed back to the register and got the surprise of his life.

Shaw's," he said. "It was like an afterthought, I forgot all about being there."

"I knew he'd call," Brunelle, a large, friendly young man with a ready smile, said. "Nobody loses that kind of money and doesn't call looking for it."

"Actually, I didn't," he said, a tad sheepish over all the attention. "I guess it's the way you're brought up or something. To me, turning it in is the only thing to do."

and called. As it rang, he realized it was probably his last resort. The call was routed to Shawn Connor, the manager on duty.

"I can't tell you it was crushing, I didn't know what to do," Duane, who asked his last name and hometown not be used in this story, said Sunday. "I'm a single dad, I haven't been working I'm struggling. That money was for Christmas presents for my two daughters," he said, his voice breaking. "And all of a sudden, it wasn't there."

"He asked me to describe it, what (denominations) the bills were. I told him it was a $100 bill wrapped around several fifties. He said, 'We've got your money.'"
