retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports that Roundy’s Supermarkets is expanding its reusable bag program, giving shoppers a five cent credit not just for the retailer’s own reusable bags, but also for similar bags from other retailers.

“We take our cues from our customers,” said Robert Mariano, Roundy’s chairman and CEO. “Many of them who have long made a practice of shopping with reusable bags asked if those bags could be included in our new program. We considered their requests and decided to update our program.”
