Running up a tab


Although lending to those in need is a mitzvah, a store owner is not obligated to let people run up a tab, since this would cripple his business. The store owner should allow some degree of credit for indigent people to enable their survival.

(Pitchei Choshen Halvaah 1:14 and footnote 36)

Have a great day,
