Walgreens - Complaint of Bag fee's at check out.

Walgreen's charges a fee for their paper bags at checkout, This is a fee that I know that this multi-million dollar or a billion dollar franchise can afford. The following competitors of Walgreen do not charge a fee to their customers: TRADER JOE , TARGET, DOLLAR TREE. This establishment should be ashamed of themselves, a disrespect to loyal customers, who seem to be mostly senior's. I am more that confident that this is a fee that Walgreen's can cover !! Remember your loyal customers having patronized your franchise for decades upon decades. FYI in case Walgreen's has forgotten, many of your customers have taken a financial hit during this COVID season, retail stores seemed to have done well financially considering these times.

User's recommendation: Speak to those in authority at Walgreen's about this absurd fee, and reach Albany about this charge.

Gala Foods Supermarkets - Complaint

My complaint is that this supermarket, like many others but not all, charge their customers for grocery bags at checkout. Not only do they charge us a fee, they also overcharge at Gala, and they justify their charge. The other "crook" stores charge $0.05 per bag, Gala was charging $0.27 per bag when the new law was passed for the plastic bag ban and the bags were "PLASTIC". The bags they are charging for now is still not a paper bag but still remains to be a bag that looks plastic. I am reporting them to the state to come and investigate their store regarding this matter. Gala along with some other stores should be ashamed of charging their loyal customers for a bag(s) at check out. This is a choice to charge the customers a fee for the grocery bags at check, because their other retail competitors such as TARGET, TRADER JOE'S, and DOLLAR TREE. These competitors show gratitude and appreciation their customer's business and do not charge a fee for their bags at check out. You should show that same gratitude for your customers. Help uplift the community of brown, black and latinos (low-middle class people) whom you make your money from. We know supermarkets are a multi-million dollar business, we know you can afford to give us this appreciation!!. FYI, remember your customers have taken a hit from the COVID-19, many have lost their jobs but the supermarkets have been doing greatly, this is one fee that your company should pick up from your loyal customers.

User's recommendation: My recommendation is that customers show make a complaint to the manager to the store and to Albany about this fee. The Manager should discontinue this outrageous fee immediately.

ShopRite - Complaint

Shoprite and all the other stores should be ashamed of charging their dedicated customers for a bag to take their groceries out of the store at check out. After customers have patronized their business, we deserve to be complimented with bags to put our purchases in. This is not fair, and I know this is a choice. Your following competitors have been appreciative of their customers because they do not charge for a bag: TARGET, DOLLAR TREE, TRADER JOES.

User's recommendation: As we live in times of alternating some of our daily routines or habits, I recommend and suggest that you begin to patronize the business and retail change who respect and show grattitude for our service.!!!
