Shops could run out of money / News / The Foreigner

Shops could run out of money. The current strike by workers in the security sector affects more than just airport passengers. As well as empty cash point machines, shops are running out of notes and small change. Whilst charter passengers face bus journeys to Sweden to get away, and SAS says it has already cancelled 10 percent of its flights, shops are beginning to ask customers to either bring small change with them, or pay by card. Some are even refusing to take money. “The strike means it’s risky to have so much cash in our shops. We then have two options. We can either ask people to start using their cards, or close shops completely,” Jens Nordahl, head of public relations for Vinmonopolet tells NRK.
