Military families in the Northwest region received a nice surprise when they were told their NEX layaways were being paid off. In all 150 families had their layaway balances totaling nearly $48,000 paid in full by the non-profit organization Pay Away the Layaway, Inc.

The Mathew Phillips family couldn’t have been more surprised with the news that their layaway had been paid by Pay Away the Layaway. “They arrived at the store with their U-Haul trailer ready to pay off and then transport their new refrigerator, washer and dryer to their new home,” said Yvonne Parker, Retail Divisional Manager, NEX Everett, Washington. “After the shock, then disbelief, then a grateful conversation, we loaded their goods in the back of their trailer. We saw a lot of giggles and smiles from the Phillips family before they left!”

Since 2016, Pay Away the Layaway has helped nearly 950 military families around the world pay off over $200,000 in layaway balances.
