Army & Air Force Exchange Service news release
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is helping military students head to the top of the class during the 2016-17 school year by extending its layaway program to include computers and tablets needed to succeed in the classroom.
From July 1 to Aug. 31, just in time for back-to-school season, Tower & Rose Barracks and Hohenfels Exchange shoppers can use layaway to hold computers, notebooks, tablets and iPads—items that are not typically eligible for the program.
“Having up-to-date technology can be vital to succeeding in the classroom, and the Tower & Rose Barracks and Hohenfels Exchange is making it easier for military families to manage expenses to get the tools students need to succeed,” said Grafenwoehr Exchange General Manager Carl Carpenter. “The extended layaway program helps parents and students stick to their back-to-school budgets.”
A $3 service fee and a deposit of 15 percent are required to hold items on layaway. Items must be picked up by Aug. 31. Shoppers can visit customer service at the Grafenwoehr Exchange for complete details.
