Tops Offering Reusable Bags

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. -- Tops Markets here is offering environmentally friendly reusable shopping bags, introducing the bags, costing 99 cents each, earlier this week at all of its stores.

Tops spokeswoman Tracy Pawelski told Progressive Grocer the chain is "very pleased with the early results" of the program. "The introduction of the reusable bags at 72 Tops Markets will offer customers an affordable, eco-friendly option to paper and plastic," she said.

According to Pawelski, the hypoallergenic, nontoxic, washable, lightweight, water-repellent, durable bags are made from nonwoven polypropylene, a portion of which comes from recycled materials.

The retailer teamed with Commerce, Calif.-based Earthwise Bag Co. on the bags.
