Walmart rewards customer for returning cart during storm. Karen Rogers reports during Action News Mornings on August 14, 2018.

Sue Johnson became an internet sensation earlier this month for doing what she felt was right in the parking lot of a Walmart.

The shopper in West Virginia braved torrential rain just to return her shopping cart.

The video went viral as countless people online remarked that they would have simply left the cart where it was.

And even though Johnson doesn't see anything special about her action, Walmart did.

A representative for the company said they were so impressed by what Johnson did that they had to repay her kindness.

Walmart surprised her with a year's supply of grocery pickup. So she doesn't even have to get out of the car - or return a cart for the next year.

"All I did was the right thing. I didn't do anything special, except I got wet," Johnson said.

She also received a trophy reading: "Sue Johnson. A Walmart legend for her most epic cart return."
