TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

The state is fining Circle K Stores $1 million for operating a check-cashing service without a license.

The Florida Office of Financial Regulation announced a settlement with the gas station and convenience store chain on Thursday.

Circle K agreed to pay the fine and will now be granted a license to operate check-cashing services at their Florida stores.

The chain had been operating the service without a license since 2009.
