Layaway Angels helps out Christmas shoppers
Layaways were popular when times were tough during the Great Depression. Some Christmas shoppers are turning to layaways again this holiday because of the state of the economy. But at some K Mart and WalMart retail stores, there's been a Christmas miracles. Anonymous donors nicknamed "Layaway Angels" have been paying off the balance on the layaway account of strangers.
One California K Mart was visited by a "Layaway Angel" that donated $10,000 dollars to accounts that were delinquent and contained kids clothes and toys.
Although this is a heartwarming story for Christmas, not everybody agree that layaways are a good idea. While they allow those too poor to get credit to buy gifts for the holidays on installment, layaways frequently come with fees for handling and for delinquent payments.
