Was doing a curb pick-up order this morning and there was a notice at the top of the screen stating "as of January 1, 2003, Walmart will no longer supply plastic shopping bags for free. Either a charge (per bag) will be added to the bill or a customer can bring their own bags." So, we just bought, for $7 each, two heavy-duty plastic milk crates to put in the vehicle when we do a curbside pickup. There are stores today where a customer has to request their bought item be put into a plastic bag, or the item won't be. I remember when nobody could walk out of a store with bought item not in a bag. Boy have times changed!
