ORLANDO — Walmart is kicking off its official start to the holiday season Friday, Sept. 13, with a no-fee layaway program.
"Times are tough and it's not easy for many Americans — they are watching every penny," said chief merchandising and marketing officer Duncan Mac Naughton. "All year long, but especially during the holidays, our customers need a low price leader. This year, we are committed to doing everything we did last year to help Americans save money — plus more. More savings, more layaway items and our commitment that they can give their families a great Christmas on a budget."
Walmart's free layaway means there are no opening fees and no gift-card reimbursements. Eligible layaway items include electronics, toys, toys for infants, jewelry, small appliances, select sporting goods and automotive electronics such as speakers and stereos. The retaile
