Take business elsewhere

Post by Stevenloan » Sun Jul 19, 2020 12:02 pm

"Don't take cash? I'll take my business elsewhere."

- Hi guys! "I'll take my business elsewhere" means "to go to another place to do business". Is this sentence applied to "hospitals, museums, theatres, bookstores, restaurants, tailor shops, hotels"?

Thanks very much!

It can be used in any establishment where goods or services are exchanged for payment. That includes hospitals in countries like the USA which lack a free health service, with the caveat that sometimes a prospective patient is in no condition to shop around for health care.
