Old South African notes is now an issue or problem that has occurred when one pays with old notes.
Today was denied to pay with an old one hundred rands note which is south african note i was shocked when pep cell employee at tembisa Plaza saying pep store does not accept these notes and when i asked why she said pep as a company does not accept these notes any more but you can go to the bank or shoprite she said to me still i was confused as to why pep stores do not accept these money.
I then thought about people in rural areas where people have to travel distances to get to town or even banks to change only a 100 note if pep store was the only place for people to buy what they need and denied to pay with these notes
The reserve bank have not discontinued these notes and pep is refusing these old notes, pep must respond and explain to many customers that have been buying from their stores all over the south Africa in 9 provinces.
