According to Walmart, many of the world's largest retailer's nearly 9 million Facebook fans, expressed their desire for a layaway service for toys and electronics, particularly during the holiday season when budgets can be tight.

"Our layaway program for Christmas, along with our every day low prices and great variety of gifts, will provide a worry-free way for our customers to fulfill their families' Christmas wish lists."
