DALLAS -- Circle K convenience stores, a subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., is rolling out CashWorks Inc.’s payroll and government check-cashing service in more than half of Circle K stores, including in Arizona, California, Nevada, Louisiana, Georgia, the Carolinas and Florida. The company plans to roll out the service to all 2,200 Circle K locations nationwide.
Circle K convenience store customers can now cash payroll or government checks at participating stores enabled with the PayPort POS (point-of sale) check-cashing system from CashWorks. Instead of cash, customers receive their funds on a CashWorks prepaid debit card. Customers then have the flexibility to convert all or a portion of their funds immediately to cash at an ATM located in each Circle K store. Balances can also be kept safely on the card avoiding the need for carrying large amounts of cash. CashWorks cardholders can access their funds at ATMs and use the card for purchases at Circle K stores or anywhere that has PIN-based debit capabilities.
“We are implementing the CashWorks program throughout our divisions,” said Dan Stiel, manager of financial services for Circle K. “CashWorks is already providing a valuable financial service to our under-banked customers while boosting in-store traffic, sales and fee income for Circle K. This program provides a risk-free operating environment that is easy to implement and operate, and our customers are already benefiting from the security and flexibility that the CashWorks program offers.”
The CashWorks system installed at Circle K convenience stores will use the same PayPort POS and other check-cashing technology created by CashWorks, which is operating at thousands of locations across the United States.
