If you want to take advantage of the layaway program at Wal-Mart be sure your item is a toy or an electronic, and be sure each item is $15 or more and is a minimum of $50.
Starting Monday Wal-Mart will also launch price cuts on dozens of holiday toys to $15. The company also said it will start offering small samples of holiday merchandise, including outdoor decor, later this month —— two weeks earlier than a year ago.
You might see some more changes at Wal-Mart inside. Walmart is remodeling 3,600 namesake stores with lower shelves and wider aisles to give shoppers a cleaner path.
