Toys R Us stores will waive the up front service for all layaway orders that are put on the shelves inside stores now through Oct. 31.
The children’s toy retailer is offering a no minimum purchase layaway program for this year’s holiday season. Layaway offers shoppers a payment plan for purchases made in stores without interest or threat of hurting a credit score. Customers who choose to use the Toys R Us layaway program have until Dec. 16 to pay off and pick up their orders.
Walmart announced it would begin offering layaway again this year on Sept. 14.
Toys R Us began offering layaway inside stores in 2009 exclusively for high priced items like bikes, swing sets, doll houses and play kitchens. The program has since expanding to offer video games, tablets and all other items inside the store.
