WEB EX: The Layaway War is on

ALBANY, GA - Whether you know it or not, the Holiday Shopping Season is already underway. Stores like Walmart, Toys-R-Us and even K-mart are competing for Layaway shoppers.

The big box stores added an extra month so you can find and pay for that perfect gift. A layaway war is brewing and they're fighting over you, the consumer. @

Walmart, Kmart, and Toys-R-Us all have similarities and differences to their layaway program.

Walmart, you have a down payment, plus a $5 service fee and, you have 90 days to pick up your item. Toys-R-Us and Kmart both require a down payment, but have waived their service fee and given you more days to pay.

Each store has restrictions on what can be put on layaway. The stores all have a cancellation fee as well. @@
