My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: New York
I went to a store and purchased about $19 worth of food. I tried to pay with a $100 bill as I had 3 $100 bills and $16 in small bills on me. The guy at the counter refused my $100 bill and I had already taken a bite out of my food, so I couldn't return it. I was wondering if it is Legal in the state of NY to refuse $100 bill. I know they can choose not to accept coins and cards, but $100 is Legal Tender.
I had to leave my food, go to 4 different stores to try to change $100.
Any input would be great.
