Readers Respond: Have You Used Layaway to Buy Your Plus-Size Clothes?

Responses: 2


If you've used layaway to buy plus-size pieces, share how often you've used it, and what you bought. I just got a jacket and am making payments, and I wanted to know if you've ever done the layaway thing.


Absolutely, I have used this buying option when it was available. Not too many retailers large or small make this offer. My number one reason for offering it to my customers. I love it!

Layaway was how I purchased work wardrob

I was single, and working in the Loop, Chicago during the 1960's. There was a really nice clothing store with different entries for women and men. Once a year I'd put clothing on layaway, then go back the following paycheck (with a loan from the CU) pay it off and spend the rest of the year paying off the loan. I had an excellent credit rating.
