Last time I remember ‘Lay-A-Ways” was Christmas of 1985. I worked retail at the local mall. The next year, on Christmas break from school, I worked for the same company and they no longer accepted “Lay-A-Ways.” As an Employee of a retail store I hated “Lay-A-Ways.” As a child of a single mother (until I was 9), I loved “Lay-A-Ways.” Without “Lay-A-Ways” I never would have gotten any Christmas.
