NAVSUP LogoFrom July 15 - Nov. 13, 2021, NEX customers will pay no fees on newly opened layaways. The fee free layaway will help families with back-to-school purchases.

The NEX Layaway Policy allows for clothing, accessories, shoes and general merchandise to be placed on layaway for up to 90 days with equal payments required every 15 days until paid in full. Any single jewelry or watch item over $500 may be put on layaway for 180 days with equal payments required every 15 days from creation until paid in full.
