Layaway service, which became popular during the Great Depression, allows customers to pay for purchases in installments before they take them home, with no interest charges. Kmart has provided layaway in the United States for forty years. With easy access to credit cards the service became less popular and many retailers discontinued the service, and by 2008 Kmart was the only major national discount retailer still offering the service. However, due to the bad economy in 2011-2012, stores such as Wal-Mart, T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and Toys "R" Us now offer layaway.
