Vons grocery stores will cash a printed payroll or government check for a fee. Other limits and restrictions apply, and check cashing policies may vary by store. But, did you know that if you’re looking to cash a large check, your chances are better if you visit the store by midday? For more specifics, see below.

Does Vons Cash Checks?

Vons grocery stores do offer check cashing services, but there are limitations and fees, a Vons payment services representative said. You can cash any printed payroll or government check at Vons, but not a handwritten, personal, or third-party check. Make sure to bring a state-issued ID or driver’s license to cash a check, and expect to pay a $2.25 fee for every $100 you cash. Keep in mind, Vons typically won’t cash a check valued over $1,000, and the store’s ability to cash checks depends on how much cash it has on-hand. For that reason, a Vons customer service representative recommends cashing larger checks by midday.

Vons grocery stores are owned by Albertsons and can be found in Southern California and Southern Nevada. Check cashing policies may vary by store; visit or contact your nearest Vons for more information.
