Stumble with Toonies

Rumors have it that the longest line in the Canadian Olympic village assembled at a supermarket when a customer purchasing $37 worth of produce realized that his wallet contains only $5 bills while the cashier only had $2 coins, nicknamed Toonies. Is it possible to fairly process this transaction without forcing this customer to buy $3 worth of bubble gum?

Customer hands over 9 $5 bills or $45.00 and gets back 4 $2 coins. 45 - 8 = 37
