Wal-Mart announced today that it will offer a Christmas layaway program for two of the season’s most popular gift categories, electronics and toys.
The layaway program begins Oct. 17 and will run through Dec. 16. Layaway orders and pick up will not be accepted on the day after Thanksgiving.
"We’re always looking for ways to ease budget strain for our customers, and we know this holiday season in particular brings with it additional financial pressure," said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising officer, Walmart. "Our layaway program for Christmas, along with our every day low prices and great variety of gifts, will provide a worry-free way for our customers to fulfill their families’ Christmas wish lists."
