I think the driving force is simply that major retailers are enthusiastic about the cost savings

The
Paper bag is 5 cent fee.
is certainly about paying off the retail lobby so they don't oppose the ban.

Do they have handles? If not, I don't see how that helps very much
Of course, like challah bags.

I think the driving force is simply that major retailers are enthusiastic about the cost savings, and not because this particular ban has any superior environmental merit. Kind of like shrinkflation, its a disguised price increase.
The retailers Iíve heard from are not happy about the ban. Paper wonít work as itíll tear in the rain. Material bags are expensive. Plastic was cheapest. Not even mentioning the cases & pallets of plastic bags the stores have to discard. Probably enough to kill every last dolphin.

I heard from a plastic bag seller that there is a big shortage on paper bags right now.

I didn't mean the local kosher grocery. Walmart, Target, etc have bean counters who will tell you exactly how much this ban will increase their share price.

Do the retailers have to discard the plastic bags? Can they sell them instead (maybe by the pallet)?

Amazing savings :P
Though stores with branches in multiple locations can transfer bags between them.

Hahaha. I love it when you find a target branded item in amazing savings with a target price of $9.99 and the amazing savings price of $3.99 slapped over it.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

From what Iíve heard you may sell a pack of bags if you choose. Somehow that doesnít destroy the world. Yet

I think stores should start doing this per order
Charge 5 cents and sell them individually or by the pack

question is would they be allowed to pack it for you
or would you have to pack it yourself
