There is a sign in GG that as of March 1st, due to NYS laws, there will be no more plastic bags. Boxes will be sold for a fee.

I asked them if they will be getting paper bags l. They said they will not be having bags at all. Either bring your own or buy a box.

Aren't they charging enough to cover the cost of paper bags?!? What's everyone else doing?

No

They are the most expensive store in the area, more expensive than any other of their own stores. At least give bags!

Didn't boxes used to be free? Or are they required to charge for boxes with the new fekakta law?

The sign says that since cardboard has gone up, they are charging for boxes. Its hard to believe cardboard is going up that much, and I would think they're saving money on bags too.

But GG doesn't care because they gave no competition.  And they're Kol Save store, which started as a discount store is more expensive on many items than GG is, besides they're horrible selection and customer service.

We need BIngo or some other competitor to come here!

I would assume they are going to charge for boxes since they know a lot more ppl are going to be requesting boxes when the new law takes affect.

how can they not at least give out paper bags

Should we be like yosef in mitzrayim and start stockpiling bags?

There's going to be a lot of really p'oed people come 3/1.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

If you do that, go for Glatt Mart. They've got the strongest bags.

Love the flyer. As if I can easily fit my groceries for my family of 7 in a lovely canvas bag slung over my shoulder.

Exactly! It's easy for people who cook a big meal twice a year to shop with one bag.
