Army & Air Force Exchange Service news release
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — Once again, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is offering fee-free layaway for Soldiers, families and retirees who want to get a jump-start on their holiday shopping and keep gifts hidden safely out of sight from prying eyes.
Starting September, the Tower Barracks, Rose Barracks and Hohenfels Exchange will waive the $3 service fee for items that are placed on layaway and paid for by Dec. 24 — including toys and bikes. Purchases of $25 or more are eligible for the layaway plan.
“By waiving the service fee, the Exchange is giving military shoppers extra incentive to consider layaway, both as a budgeting tool and as a way to keep snooping loved ones from finding their gifts before the big day. With a few months to go before the holidays, shoppers can start checking off their gift lists — and keep those presents safely hidden.”
A deposit of 15 percent is required to hold items on layaway. Shoppers can visit customer service at the Tower Barracks, Rose Barracks and Hohenfels Exchange for complete program details and eligibility information.
