Layaway is now available at Victoria's H-E-B Plus, 6106 N. Navarro St.
The first program of its kind for H-E-B, Layaway Today allows customers to pay for merchandise in increments this holiday season, according to a company news release.
The program is available at nine stores throughout the Gulf Coast and border regions.
"As we expand our product offerings in electronics, toys and small appliances, this layaway program is another way we can offer families more value, and in turn more savings," Bill Anderson, H-E-B Group vice president of general merchandise, said in the release. "Our hope is that this program will allow families to stretch their dollars and plan out their budgets this holiday season."
Layaway Today is available through Dec. 14 and can be used toward the purchase of toys, electronics and small appliances. No up-front or set-up fees join the mix, according to the release.
Requirements include a minimum purchase of $50, with each item having at least a $15 value, and a down payment of $10 or 10 percent of the total purchase, whichever is greater.
Participating stores will offer special layaway areas in the electronics department, with dedicated partners to assist with purchases. Customers can also sign up to receive payment reminders via text message.
H-E-B will inform shoppers about the program through in-store signs, print ads and both digital and social media channels.
