Re: Plastic bag charges by May 2011

Yes, 5 cents a bag over here in Canada. When I first learned about this I was checking out my own groceries in the self check out line.
Um 5 cents a bag self checking surly free bags to follow after all I was saving the store money not having a staff member serve me.
The manager just looked at me smiled and walked away. The customer is not always right!!!!

Re: Plastic bag charges by May 2011

i only use carrier bags for my bins .. and have got into the habit anyway of carrying a big bag to put my shopping in ... and a spare bag inside of that most of the time.
