    Six-year-old Carter's curiosity at his local to Sam's Club earned him a lot more than a bag of groceries last week, according to the "Today" show.

    Carter, who has Down syndrome, walked around the check-out register during a routine trip to Sam’s Club in North Carolina. The kind cashier let him scan a couple of items, but his day at the store got better from there.

    His big smile and winning attitude caught the eye of the store manager, who "came up and he was telling Carter how great a job he did,” said April Jones Rouse, Carter's mother. 

    The manager had an idea, and ran back with a Sam's Club vest, badge and buttons, a surprise Carter won't soon forget.
