Yes, it’s happening, again. Apparently, this also panicked shoppers, last July…so, I presume the same explanation applies. The pandemic has resulted in coin shortages here and there around the country.
And how do you keep from running down your stock of coins? By not accepting cash, of course. The Walmart we shop periodically was not only NOT allowing cash to be processed at the self-checkouts, today…they weren’t accepting cash at the registers either.
Just letting you know. For some folks, this can be a problem.
