Wal-Mart Expands Layaway Program

Posted:

Wal-Mart is expanding its Christmas layaway program this year.

The company says high customer demand sparked the change.

The new program will last a month longer and will include more items than the toys and electronics featured last year.

Shoppers can set aside home appliances and sporting goods. Each item has to be $15 or more, and the total layaway purchase must be at least $50.

Wal-Mart officials say the program will start September 16 and end December 14.

Experts say this is a sign that the holiday shopping season will get very competitive and merchants will do whatever they can to lure people in.
