First, what's a layaway?:

Putting items on layaway is a popular way to pay for items that you might not have the money in hand for. Instead of using a credit card, consumers usually pay a small percentage of the total purchase price up front, along with a small processing fee. The payments are usually arranged monthly, and they are interest-free. You can find more detailed information about layaway programs here: Layaway Comeback.
