Abstract

The Portland Rent-A-Center on Marginal Way, which opened in November, offers the rental of televisions, microwaves, computers and other household items to those who lack credit, a down payment or the ability to purchase outright. Because of above-retail purchase prices and high interest rates, people taking advantage of the rent-to-own option can end up paying twice what an item costs on the retail market. Details, price list.
