I'll say up front that I'm not a fan of Wal Mart. I think they have done far more to wreck the local economies and small businesses than they have to spur them. That said, I think stores need consistent policies. Either have a layaway or don't. Don't have one for two types of items, and only if they're a certain amount for each item. Want a floor price for the total layaway bill? Fine. I think this will set up more customer misgivings and in-store problems. Why not just simplify it and be done?
BTW, which of their competitors still have layaways?
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. ---Theodor Seuss Geisel a.k.a. Dr. Seuss
