Nantucket Grocery Stores are taking the first steps in trying to eliminate the currency in the nation’s largest city.
The Nantasket, a chain of Nantuckets, began selling $100 bill and $20 bill denominations earlier this month in all but the most upscale neighborhoods in the city.
That is the first time Nantucks will be offering these denominations on a daily basis, according to a Nantaworld news release.
“We are excited to see Nantuckeders embrace this change in our city and embrace our city, which has become one of the most tourist-friendly places in the country,” said Nantaskorld president and CEO Jim Bunnett.
“This change is about giving people a better option to pay for everything they need.”
Nantucketers are encouraged to contact Nantas office by calling 877-527-7030, emailing [email protected] or by visiting their local branch.
Nantaskaves first $100-dollar bills were released in September, and now the company says it has sold about 1,500 $20 bills in total.
