How come Gourmet Glatt charges for bags if they have vendors advertising on them? Double dipping?

Why did Evergreen start charging $1 for boxes when they started for bags? Make a $50 minimum to waive the $1 fee. They felt the right to raise prices like madmen, and people can easily spend $400 in one trip, and they still charge $1 per box.

It wasn't just evergreen. It was all stores. The reason is that since there's a charge for bags, everyone would just request a box even if they are only buying 3 items.

I agree with you that with a minimum purchase it should be free just like it always was. I had the same suggestion. But they don't care. Since all stores implemented a charge, there is no reason for one of them not to. You're stuck either way.

That's what they told me when I asked. But they are still double dipping and making a profit.
As an aside, those bags don't cost them 20 cents. They cost approx 3 cents.

The government in Israel makes stores that are large enough charge for bags, saying that doing so motivates people to use less of them. However, they don't make the stores pay them the tax for the bags. Hence, while in the past, Shaarei Harevacha was makpid for you to take as few bags as possible, once they were being paid 10 agurot per bag, they let you take as many as they want (because the bags are not worth ten agurot). This is wonderful because I use them instead of garbage bags at one quarter's cost (though they hold only 85% of what a garbage bag holds).

I would add that now with cardboard costs having plummeted, the groceries are no longer taking a big loss on these boxes.

At least some stores have stopped charging a delivery fee

My biggest pet peeve is when baggers stuff up bags and boxes, often ruining or smashing items, in an effort to save 20 cents/bag or 1 dollar/box. When I spend $300 or $400 on a grocery order, I don't want all my groceries smashed. Don't be a tzaddik and save me 20 cents, I'll save a lot more if you don't smash my groceries.

That was temporary. Was probably to get people to use the self-checkout.

Looking for a reliable framer that would do a small job. To fix a part of a roof that is sagging.
Any recommendations?
