Walmart to Offer Layaway Again

Walmart brings back layaway. (Google


This time around, the program, running Oct. 17 through Dec. 16., is available only on electronics and toys, two of the holiday season's most popular categories.

Those items have to cost at least $15 apiece, with a total basket size of at least $50. A 10 percent down payment is required, plus a $5 service fee. The company will charge a $10 cancellation fee if merchandise isn’t picked up by Dec. 16. Fine jewelry continues year-round as a layaway option.

To tap demand for the program, Walmart  also plans to lower prices on dozens of toys on a temporary rollback basis to $15 beginning Sept. 12. Other products eligible for the program include bicycles and video games.

Walmart decided to reinstate the program after broad-based feedback it received from store managers, executives customer-listening groups and many customer letters and phone calls, Chief Merchandising Officer Duncan Mac Naughton told MarketWatch.

Hard times call for different options. While we won't dismiss Walmart's benevolence in helping out lower-income consumers, it stands to make a lot of money that otherwise would not be spent by bringing back the layaway program. It seems like a win-win for all involved, as long as consumers don't accrue more debt than they can afford.

 You don't like Penney's or Sears or K-Mart?  How about Kohl's, Bealls, Ross, Marshall's or TJ Maxx?  And a lot of the big stuff like TV's, computers, etc...I find online.

Learning what my city does for Wally, turned me off from it.

Della, we agree on something. Might be one of those days to play the lottery.
