FORT MYERS, Fla.- With the holidays right around the corner, stores are now offering customers a chance to put electronics, toys and other big items on layaway. Some stores are changing the rules by cutting fees and allowing you to put more items on layaway.
David Holland, the store manager at Toys "R" Us in Fort Myers, says customers have asked about layaway options as early as September. He says it's a choice more people are making this holiday season.
"Alot of people liked the idea of not having to worry about hiding this gift under the bed and surly some economic factors which allows you to spread out the payment over time," said Holland.
Some retailers have slashed fees. For example, Toys "R" Us has eliminated any service fees and customers are asked to put a down payment of 20%.
