  • Oopsie!!!
    I take it back. Sears brought BACK the layaway plan jan of 2009. It's still in effect for this year.

    Sears Layaway Policy
    - A Layaway contract is ninety (90) days
    - Sears Layaway Program is available in Sears Full Line, Sears Hardware,
    Sears Grands and Sears Essential Stores (not available in Automotive,
    Dealer, Outlet Stores, or on
    - Must be In-Store Merchandise. Rain Check (merchandise on sale but out
    of stock) and special orders can be put on layaway only after the item
    arrives in the store. Some exclusions apply.
    - Does not affect existing Fine Jewelry layaway program (6/12 mos.)
    - Total down payment of $15 or 20%, whichever is greater
    - $5 non-refundable service fee in all states except Maryland ($1)
    - $10 cancellation fee will apply

  • Not anymore.
    Kmart is the only national retailer that still offers the layaway option.
