Wayne, N.J. Toys “R” Us has expanded its popular "Big Gift" layaway to include video-game hardware and is also introducing a new video-game hardware trade-in program.
"Since the introduction of the 'Big Gift' layaway last month, the number one request we've received from customers is to expand the program to include video-game hardware, and we're responding by providing more convenient payment options for these items," said Jerry Storch, chairman and CEO, Toys “R” Us. "At the same time, we're adding a video-game hardware trade-in program in our stores for customers who may be looking for ways to save on Christmas gifts for loved ones or to upgrade their own gaming systems."
Placing a product on layaway at any Toys “R” Us store requires a deposit of 20% of the total purchase, including all applicable taxes, and a $10 service charge. Payments may be made at the store at any time in the form of cash, check, credit card, debit card or gift card. Items must be paid for in full by Dec. 6 to ensure the gift is available for pickup before Christmas.
