It’s one of the first signs that Black Friday is right around the corner. My local Walmart layaway opens on the 1st.

When my kids were little I LIVED for layaways! Great way to keep the gifts hidden as well as let me pay weekly (the way I had to live WAY back then!) Now, with a big old house and lots of rooms and no kids living at home any longer - I have the room to shop year round for the ever growing family and save money that way.

 

I do like the FEEL of FALL that comes with layaways, though. ;)

it was so nice when layaway was year round, this crap of only a couple of months its just crazy.

 

layaway used to be so nice, do your layaway in the next month or so, go up on Black Friday and have them adjust all the prices on everything. no having to stand in lines to checkout after you tried to find everything since you already had it all on layaway lol of course that was also back when they didn't special sku everything to avoid that from happening

Yes I love layaway as a storage to keep things hidden. My house isn’t very big so it helps.

I also wish it was year round and included more items

Yup I miss the year round layaways too. They made it  much easier to buy things with having to worry about interest rates with credit cards

When I was in school, I worked at Zayre's Department Store.  They had free, year round layaway.  They also gave 10% off rain check items, 10% employee discount, and an additional 10% off for employees before Christmas.  All year long, I bought out of stock sale items to get the rain check price, put them on layaway, and paid for everything just before Christmas for a cumulative discount of 27% off the sale price.  Zayre's was the first place I got a rebate and the only place I ever worked Thanksgiving.

This year they are requiring 20% down instead of the 10% it has been forever
