Now On Rollback at Walmart: Holiday Layaway Fees Retailer Lowers Layaway Open Fee from $15 to $5

Duncan  McNaughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer, Wal-Mart U.S.:

“When our customers speak up, we listen. Last year, they told us they wanted a holiday layaway program. We brought it back, and it was a success.

This year, they told us they wanted more categories, more time and a different fee structure. And we responded again.

Today, I’m excited to announce that we’re rolling back our Christmas Layaway open fee from $15 to $5. This is a direct response to feedback we received since announcing this year’s Holiday Layaway program. Customers who make their final payment will receive a refund of the $5 fee on a Walmart gift card.

We believe this rollback strengthens our layaway offering. It’s even more attractive to our customers and makes Wal-Mart more competitive in the marketplace.”
