New York City Expected To Ban Cashless Stores, Pending Mayor's Signature

Jan. 27, 2020

Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to approve a bill banning cashless food and retail stores, which the New York City City Council approved in a 43-3 vote Jan. 24, NBC New York reports. The city would join Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Jersey and Massachusetts in banning cashless stores.

Stores would not be able to charge customers more if they pay with cash, and fines would be assessed to businesses that violate the bill, which would become a law upon receiving the mayor's signature.
