Walmart lowering fees for holiday layaway program

Walmart is lowering the fee for its holiday layaway program. The fee to open up a layaway account will be $5 instead of $15.
The announcement follows a move by Toys R Us which waived its upfront service fee for layaway orders from now through October 31.
Walmart says its own move is not in response to Toys R Us, but rather a reaction to customer feedback since announcing last month that it would bring back its layaway program for the holiday season.
