Let the layaway wars begin. Many retailers are doing what they can to get your holiday dollars.
New this year, Walmart is offering a longer layaway period meaning you have more time to pay and now more items are available.
The retailer lowered its Christmas layaway open fee to $5 from $15.
Kmart , the discount unit of Sears Holdings Corp. is fighting to get more of your business.
The retailer has removed the service fee altogether from layaways.
In the past Kmart charged $5 to $10 dollars to use layaway.
Toys "R" Us also did away with its layaway fees and extended its service to everything, including all toys, video games and swing sets.
