HEB is adding layaway.


  No, that doesn’t mean you'll be able to take a loaf of bread and pay for it by the month.  But HEB says it is now selling toys, appliances, and electronics at its HEB Plus stores, layaway makes sense.


  "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," said Bill Anderson, HEB Group Vice President of General Merchandise.


  "'Layaway Today' will allow families to stretch their dollars and plan out their budgets this holiday season."


  'Layaway Today' will be offered at all HEB Plus stores, from September 1 through December 13.


  The program will include no fees, and the minimum purchase to place an item in layaway is $50, with each item having at least a $15 value.


  Each store will have a layaway area, located in the electronics department.  Customers will be reminded to make payments by text message.


  HEB spokeswoman Dya Campos says layaway will be offered at every HEB Plus store across Texas.
