Walmart: Guns on layaway

Was in Walmart yesterday buying ammo when the clerk informed me that they are accepting guns on layaway. Just thought Id share the info for anyone interested.

I thought about that too, if they do layaway on firearms. Although i'm not one to really buy guns at WallyWorld, but its good to have the option.

I buy a lot of guns on layaway. Not necessarly at Wal-Mart, but it's nice to know they have that as an option again.

I'm old enough to remember when people used layaway instead of credit cards. My mother had a bin at Sears with her name on it.

Hunting season must be upon us, my WallyWorld is fully stocked with front-stuffers, it's all they sell besides ammo and camo

I'm asking this seriously, not to be a pedant, not to embarass you, or anything like that, but I'm not sure you've said what you meant to say...

You said "they are excepting guns on layaway..."

While the above construction is somewhat colloquial in how the word except is used, to "except something" means to remove it, to exclude it, to disallow it.

Essentially, your sentence as written means that guns cannot be put on layaway at WalMart.

The other possible word, and the one I THINK you wanted to use, is accept. That would mean that you CAN put a gun on layaway at WalMart.

Could you clarify, please?

How much down is required to layaway a gun at Walmart and how long do they let you layaway it for?

My local Wal-Mart sells ammo and some cheap Chinese scopes, but that's about it as far as gun-related stuff goes (no cleaning kits, targets, accessories or anything like that.) There aren't many gun shops in the Norfolk area, so I'm a little jealous of all of you who have Wal-Marts that stock guns, reloading supplies, etc.

No weapons sold at any Walmarts around here even the ammo is scarce and the pricing for it is ridiculous

They're torn between being anti-gun and making money !!
In the end of course making money will win and finally all the stores will sell guns.

The layaway policy is the same as last year for Christmas. Firearms were also able to be laid away last year.

The minimum down is $10 or 10%, whichever is greater, plus $5 and all items to be laid away have to be more than $15. Items may be added or deleted from any layaway package or the package can be canceled. You lose the $5. If you pay the layaway in full you get the $5 on a store credit shopping card.

This year we are able to take the final payment at any register whereas last year the final payment had to be tendered at the layaway desk. We already have several layaway firearms in the vault at my store.

Yes. He is full of excrement. Print out the following link and take it to him and shove it in his face. The down is $10 or 10% whichever is greater.

If he argues tell him to call his manager and speak to them on this associate's lack of knowledge.

Local WallMart stopped selling guns years ago. Not even a muzzle loader. However, the ammo prices are the best around.

Okay. Here's the skinny on firearms layaways.

I asked about the 50% figure and was told it was not true EXCEPT for special orders. Then the figure is 50% down.

All other sales are treated as simple merchandise and the 10% figure applies.

If they tell you anything other than 10% for firearms in stock tell them to call their manager and if he says you are wrong tell him the following in these words:

"Go look on the WIRE and look up the SOPs for sporting goods layaways."

Don't take "No" for an answer.

The WIRE is the Wal-Mart Intranet. The SOPs describe how the layaway sale is to be made step-by-step.
