Philly, NJ push back against the cashless trendPhilly.com 02/06/2019
If you’re an Amazon Go fan, the future may not always be sunny in Philadelphia. The city’s Law and Government Committee approved a bill by 4-1 in a hearing yesterday that would ban most cashless stores in the city and also charge fines of up to $2,000 for retailers that charge premiums for cash purchases. The legislation still needs to be approved by the full city council, but that could happen as early as Feb. 14. A similar law that would regulate all stores New Jersey passed that state’s legislature and only awaits signature by Governor Phil Murphy.
