I got kinda mad a few days ago and wanted to share this with you all.. Not that anyone cares. I am trying not to use my credit cards. That's a good thing. So I take my son down to the Thunder store and was going to buy a couple of hats, a flag, and a car sticker. When i got ready to pay they would not take my personal check. They take credit cards or travelers checks, but they won't take even local personal checks. She said they weren't set up to take them. That doesn't make sense to me. I live in Oklahoma City, this is an Oklahoma City team, and they won't take my Oklahoma City check. So we just put all the stuff back, and went to Academy and bought the hats for $5.00 cheaper for each hat and they would take my check.They didn't have the flag or the sticker, but getting my son the hat was the most important part. The Thunder store is only open Monday-Friday till 6:00pm, and isn't open week-ends, and they won't take local checks. Needless to say I won't be shopping much there. Clay Bennett needs to make the store more customer friendly.
Maybe they could also open some outlet stores NW and SW that are open more hours at least here in the beginning.

You should really get a debit card

While I agree with Easy180 about the debit card, it is absurd that they wouldn't take your check. They easily took my check when I put down my deposit for season tickets tonight.

I don't write that many checks, but all retail stores take checks. I haven't run across one that doesn't until now.

It said the clerk just said they were not yet set up to take them. I'm sure they are working on it no need to get all bent out of shape yet....

For some reason I have the image of a giant novelty check made out to "Thunder" for the price of a hat and a t-shirt.
Thats pretty much the only times I see checks anymore, everything is direct deposit and debit card.

I work at a local retail store and we've never taken checks for instant retail items. Of course, we're independently owned, so we have our own rules of operation. If we were part of the national chain the case may be different.

If they said they aren't set up for it, that's perfectly legitimate. Retail stores have to run their checks through a phone or internet system to get approval.

SoonerQueen, 2008 called and told me to tell you that you need to get a debit card because few merchants still accept checks.

oh stop picking on SoonerQueen...it's silly for a local company to not to take a local check.

But, I have to add, I think I've written about 3 checks this year. My Debit card is my friend.

Speaking of Thunder Wear, my shirts are still backordered!

I tried to just cancel them and go to Academy but no one will respond. I'm tired of waiting.

Oh GAWD the Smell!

What's a "check"?

Those sound neat!

I dropped $87 on Thunderwear at the store, shortly after the press conference last Wendesday, then went to Academy the following day -to see Desmond Mason, Academy had the same gear for $8 less (per shirt) --do it up!

Did my part this morning and picked up some stuff!

The navy blue stuff looks great with the logo, especially on the hat.

Just for the record I don't write that many checks. But regardless of that, businesses ought to take them.Ty Karried for speaking up for me. I appreciate that.

Businesses should do whatever they want, and if you're offended, don't shop there. Let your dollar vote speak for you!

I'm surprised Leadership Square allowed them to do those pole wraps.

Considering Clay basically owns the building, I'm not.

Are you hinting to us that you're hoping for an OKCTalk donation drive to get you some Thunder clothings and gears?

That looks kool. A touch of art or decoration or whatever you want to call it, rather than plain ole same-looking poles.

It is I that actually basically owns the building and I told the Thunder Association of Oklahoma City that is was okay to hang the banners until Nov 1.

That's really cool ... Hope you got a free t-shirt out of it! It is bright but it looks great and is a nice welcome for the team.
