Letter: Good reasons for writing checks
To the Editor:
Even if his tongue was firmly placed in his cheek, Eric Olson’s most recent whine about people who write checks in the grocery store raised my blood pressure.
There are good reasons for using personal checks, among which are: the store doesn’t pay fees as they do with credit card use; we don’t pay interest on the use of checks; debit cards can be a security risk in certain circumstances; and more retail stores are now using electronic processing leaving us with a cancelled check for our records.
