Retailers bid farewell to layaway, as shoppers embrace buy now, pay later options
Supply chains are snarled and manufacturing is constrained. For weeks, headlines have been telegraphing a clear message to shoppers: This holiday season shop early.
In years past, early bird shoppers may have turned to layaway plans to reserve holiday gifts and pay for the purchases over time. But many retailers — including the nation’s largest, Wallyworld — have done away with or scaled back these programs. One reason is shoppers have new tools at their disposal to spread out payments.

How can city dwellers help with climate change? Buy less stuff.
CITIES CAN PLAY a major role in the global effort to curb climate change, a new report says—and a major step they can take is helping their inhabitants consume a whole lot less stuff by making changes in the way cities are run.
Even the most forward-thinking cities have a long way to go to neutralize their carbon emissions, the report says. That’s partly because for years, cities have been doing carbon math wrong, adding up only the carbon costs that occur within city limits. But much of city dwellers' climate impact actually comes from the things they eat, use, or buy that originate far outside the city—from food to clothes to electronics and more.
To keep emissions in check, the report suggests, cities should aim to trim their carbon emissions by 50 percent in the next 11 years, and then by a total of 80 percent by 2050. And because, as the researchers found, a hefty portion of those emissions can be traced back to consumer goods, food, and energy produced outside city limits, one of the best things cities can do is help their residents pull back on consumption.
The Most Popular Easter Candy in Every State, According to RetailMeNot
Each spring, supermarket candy aisles are flooded with sweet treats to fill our Easter baskets—especially with marshmallow Peeps, a holiday staple. RetailMeNot decided to investigate just how many people prefer Peeps to other Easter candy by asking over 1,000 Americans what their favorite Easter candy is—as it turns out, the marshmallow chicks and bunnies were pretty soundly beat. Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs ultimately came out on top, with 32 percent of the survey respondents preferring them; Cadbury Eggs also did pretty well, with 17 percent. That was followed by jelly beans, at 16 percent, and then chocolate bunnies, which came in at a shocking 10 percent. (Is everything we know a lie?) Finally, Peeps rolled in at just six percent, and apparently, 73 percent of the respondents said they don't like Peeps at all. RetailMeNot also pulled results to find the most popular Easter candy in every state, and again, Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs reign supreme—Tennessee and Virginia, however, are very firmly in camp Peeps.
