pennies from heaven

At a local store this penny tray sits on the counter. Usually, in shops, you see a little saucer containing five or six cents to help customers when they run short while paying for purchases. This quantity of helper-pennies really impressed me. 
So, my CDPB friends, a penny for your thoughts?

I was going to put in my two-cents worth, but thought better of it.

Tanya, thanks. Did you see my post yesterday? It was for you.
Leia, I'm so pleased with this "Life is Grand" award but I'm afraid I don't know what to do with it. Sorry.
Jacob and Henny: Hahahahaha!

What a fascinating concept; we do not have that here in Australia at all. Any jar on the counter is usually a tip jar for small change and only found in cafes and restaurants. Is this penny-tray misused by folk who can afford to pay the full amount?

It is a great service so on that day you don't have change and you don't want to get a pocketful of change back from the cashier, you can take a penny or two.

Makes no cents to me!

You'd never see that many pennies around here. People use them as quickly as they are added.
