Target no longer accepting checks for red card payments in store

I have an asshole relative who still has a dial phone and calls the refrigerator an ICE BOX. Captain Tech here, we use GPS coordinate calculations for navigation, lap mounted iPad for flight planning and I'm old. Very old.
In the two years I've worked at target, I've had to process a check ONCE. Not a surprising change at all
I've seen checks be used a handful of times for GM stuff- with that said MANY guests at my store pay off their credit card bill with a check which is... interesting lol.

EDIT: one of the times for GM stuff was someone who does constant check fraud LOL
