Big Lots does not offer a layaway program for its products. However, some Big Lots locations do offer an alternate program called a Price Hold. A Price Hold is different from a layaway because the item being purchased is not held at the store, but the price is still guaranteed.
Not all Big Lots locations offer a Price Hold program. Also, the terms of the Price Hold may differ between Big Lots locations, and not all furniture may qualify for a Price Hold. When a Price Hold is nearly paid off, it is recommended to contact the Big Lots location two weeks in advance so that they can ensure the item is in stock and ready for pick-up at the location.
