Some U.S. Retailers Accepting Euros


Now the owners of the Mediterranean sandwich shop, themselves avid travelers to the old country, have taken an extra step in welcoming transatlantic visitors. They accept euros.

Scott and Arianne Bennett are joining a number of businesses in tourist-heavy areas that have begun accepting the euro and other foreign currencies.

Experts may debate whether this flirtation with foreign currencies marks the decline of the dollar as the international standard for trade. But for the Bennetts, it was simply a matter of not turning away travelers who had yet to visit a currency exchange or bank.
