NEW YORK (NEWSnet/AP) — Target will no longer accept personal checks from shoppers as of July 15.

The Minneapolis-based discounter confirmed the move on Tuesday, citing “extremely low volumes” of customers who still write checks.

Target said it remained committed to creating an easy and convenient checkout experience with credit and debit cards, “buy now, pay later” services and the Target Circle membership program, which applies deals automatically at checkout.

Target’s decision leaves Walmart, Macy’s and Kohl’s among the retailers that still accept personal checks at their stores. Whole Foods Market and the Aldi supermarket chain previously stopped taking checks from customers.

Shoppers have pulled out checkbooks increasingly less often since the mid-1990s with the rise of cash-dispensing ATMs, debit cards, online banking and mobile payment systems.
