  • I heard from someone (I know people who work there and are managers and such) that they stopped it because they were paying too much for the storage. Alot of people didn't pick up their things so it was costing to store and then place it back on the floor.

  • that and they have their own credit cards that americans just love. so if you think you'll save money buying their on credit, you can waste any savings on interest and late charges which they know some will have.
    but seriously, christmas comes every year at the same time. It doesn't magically appear every year on Dec.25. You know now, it will be next year on Dec.25, so start putting some cash away Jan.1 and then leave it alone.
    your layaway dilema is solved. you're welcome.

  • Well you have a choice you can either save up for it or you can take your income tax return (like me ) and buy presents with it. Yeah you gotta buy stuff in like Feb. but you got it.

  • because it was costing too much to keep it but I think site to store is better anyways because I think you may be able to pay for it when you pick it up :) I hate kmart too they are overpriced and Ihate their return policy :( No wonder they was in bankruptcy...

    you pay in full before you have it sent to the store for site to store

    OP: It's not having what you want, it's wanting what youve got~!

  • Why don't you just take the money you would normally put into layaway payments and put it in an envelope, and then take that money and buy your presents with it? There is a charge for layaway anyway - they don't do it for free.
