Roundy's Expands Reusable Bag Program

Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. recently unwrapped a new reusable bag program at its Pick 'n Save, Copps, Rainbow and Metro Market stores throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota that enables customers to receive a 5-cent credit for each Roundy's reusable bag brought in during a shopping trip to transport their groceries.

Dubbed “Doing Our Part," the program has been expanded to include reusable bags other than Roundy’s brand reusable bags, including similarly constructed bags from other retailers or entities, canvas bags and market baskets. The 5-cent credit doesn’t apply to paper or plastic retail bags.

“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.”

Milwaukee-based Roundy's long-standing recycling program remains in place.

Customers still can bring back their paper or plastic bags, drop them in the recycling bins at any Pick 'n Save, Copps, Rainbow or Metro Market and the 151-store grocer will make sure those bags are recycled.
