I don't belie e I've ever done business with any retail establishment that don't take plastic, but again, I prefer personal check over CC on out of town purchases.
I've got one GS in the next county west that doesn't accept CC's at all. They are a rather small joint and don't have the selection of Cabela's, etc. but they still have stuff. They are rather out of the way for me so I haven't done much business with them, but the no CC's thing has kept the hoarders out.
