Wal-Mart Bringing Back Layaway
September 9, 2011 by USA Post
Wal-Mart Bringing Back Layaway, If there is any indication that people every day in this country still suffering the effects of the Great Recession, is the largest retailer in the country, bringing back the program became popular during the Great Depression: layway.
From October 17th to 16th December, Walmart customers will be able to perform the ritual of putting obsolete once the most expensive items in the reserve, so no interest payments, and then pick them up when they are paid. A bit strange when, not long ago, it was common to get the item right away in exchange for an additional twenty percent, depending on the brand of financial vampire that issued your credit card.
There are some caveats to this service. First, to qualify layway, items must be toys or electronic devices and cost at least 15, and the total purchase price is due to 50 years. So if you were hoping to put a twelve pack of Busch Lite and your favorite DVD Larry The Cable Guy turns on the program, you may be out of luck. Second, ten percent, the payment will be due when the customer signs up, and there will be 5 and the registration fee and a cancellation fee and 10.
This is not all for the benefit of Wal-Mart with lower incomes, however. The company has experienced a decline in sales over the past nine quarters, and is awaiting the return of the popular program button tickling consumption in the poor sector of the country.
If you do not dig Wal-Mart, Sears and K-Mart has been doing the revival layway a couple of years, and Toys “R” Us, TJ Maxx, Marshalls y. I think layaway is a good way to encourage responsible spending and maybe even get people familiar with the positive aspects of delayed gratification. It could also save some lives during the time of year in one of the most frequent causes of death by stampede of a laptop and 100.
