MCALESTER, Okla. (KTVU) - A 5-year-old boy from Oklahoma lived out his dream job at Lowe's hardware store.
Deklan's grandmother, Theresa, reached out to Lowe's on the corporate level after two years of her grandson insisting he has worked at the store.
She asked if she could buy him his own apron and nametag. She never expected they would offer such a special day.
The store invited Deklan, Theresa, and Deklan's mother Elizabeth to the store. They not only gave Deklan his own uniform, but also a birthday party and a few "jobs" to do.
Theresa says that when she and Deklan arrived, they were treated like VIPs. Employees had set up a table with balloons, a cake and gifts.
But first, Deklan had to get to work. He was immediately given a promotion to Assistant Manager and helped employees out.
Theresa says, "He had a blast."
"In this day in age it's very rate to find big companies that care unless big money is being spent," Deklan's grandmother says, "For Lowe's to take the time to indulge in a little boy's fantasy of working for their company showed me that the bottom dollar isn't always the most important thing to them".
