Behold the return of layaway

Sears is restoring its layaway option for holiday shoppers who are trying to weather the stormy economy. Seeing the resurgence of layaway at K-Mart stores, Sears resumes the pay-as-you-go method at its stores on Sunday.

Sears shelved its layaway program nearly 20 years ago.

For a small down payment and a $5 fee, shoppers can buy something and pay in increments until December 23.
