Knox Exchange brings back fee-free layaway for holidays

-A A +A

Soldiers, Families and retirees at Fort Knox can get a head start on holiday shopping while keeping gifts away from prying eyes with fee-free layaway from the Army & Air Force Exchange Service.

The Fort Knox 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.

“Layaway is not just a way to keep snooping loved ones from ruining their holiday surprise — it can also be used as a budgeting tool,” said Fort Knox Exchange General Manager Steve Ard. “We want to make holiday shopping easy for Soldiers and Families at Fort Knox, that’s why we’re giving the gift of fee-free layaway this holiday season.”

A deposit of 15 percent is required to hold items on layaway. Visit customer service at the Fort Knox Exchange for complete program details and eligibility information.
