Layaway finds way back into Sears

MILFORD - For the first time since 1989, layaway is a viable option for Sears holiday shoppers.

Management at Sears says that at least 100 customers have taken advantage of the payment plan. Customers are required to pay either $15 or 20 percent of the total when they put the items on layaway. The gifts must be picked up and paid for by Dec. 23.

Items available for layaway include toys, tools and clothing while home electronics, appliances and doorbuster sales cannot be placed on a payment plan. During these tough economic times, cashiers say customers are taking advantage of the program.

?You want to keep your traditions up even in the times like we're in,? says cashier Tony Peele.
