Cash or card?

The company confirmed that Target will no longer accept personal checks as a form of payment in its stores starting later this month.

A spokesman for the Minnesota-based retail chain said it will stop accepting checks this month due to “extremely low volumes” of such payments. He told NBC Chicago,.

The spokesman added that the company had taken “several measures” to notify customers in advance.

The change will go into effect on July 15 after Target’s popular Circle Week sales event ends.

Target said that while personal checks will no longer be accepted, the store will still accept cash, credit and debit cards, Target Circle cards, digital wallets, SNAP/EBT cards and purchases of Pay Now Later services.

The Post has reached out to Target for comment.

The move comes as the retail giant makes a number of changes to save money as it says it is struggling with theft.

In March, Target imposed a 10-item limit for customers using self-checkout.

Just last week, Target instructed store employees to stop shoplifters who tried to make off with items totaling $50, down from the previous $100.

Target’s CFO Michael Fedelke told investors last fall that the company expected shoplifting to be a “significant financial headwind.”
