There are many reasons why modern Black Friday shoppers might want to use a store's layaway service. Layaway started during the Great Depression, and dipped in popularity in the 1980's with the rise of the credit card, but many stores still offer it with certain restrictions.
People who don't have or don't want to use credit cards, or people who like to have presents stored off site to hide them from snooping family members, often find the layaway experience easier than last-minute shopping or long-term storage of holiday gifts.
In the pages that follow we have listed the details you need on some of your favorite retailers' policies, rules, and requirements for layaway service.
