Some Shoppers turning to layaway

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Many families are still on tight budgets. That means paying for Christmas will be difficult. Many shoppers are turning to layaway.

We were at K-Mart Friday afternoon as several people put hundreds of dollars of Christmas gifts on layaway.

The store is running out of space but is working to make room for an influx of items in the coming weeks.

Managers say layaway offers an alternative to help customers get the items they want.

"It's the optimum time now because if you put one on layaway this week it has to be out on the 17th of December which is just in time for Christmas," said Phyllis Spears, K-Mart Upfront Manager.

Customers must make payments every two weeks online and can pick up their goods when they make the final payment.
