Whole Foods no longer accepting personal checks

Signs have already been posted in stores, and as of September 1st, Whole Foods Market will no longer accept personal checks. The store's Rachel Malish talks about the reasons for the change. “It’s a very small percentage of our shoppers who are still using personal checks. Some of our regions have less than seven percent of people using personal checks at Whole Foods Market.”

Malish says they've also seen their share of hot checks and not accepting personal checks will eliminate that problem. Stores will continue to accept cash, credit or debit cards. She says not allowing payment by check will shorten the checkout time at the register and it reduces the use of paper in stores. In addition to Texas, stores in Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma will also refuse payment by check.
