When Alan Howard read about a Florida woman being the victim of a Black Friday theft, he decided to help out.
Howard, who with his brother, Marc, owns Plesser's Appliance in Babylon, responded by offering $1,000 to replace her stolen items, a gesture that has made the national news.
"It was an impulse thing," Howard said. "Let me help her out. This woman waited in line 22 hours then got her stuff stolen."
