Re: Coronavirus and Plastic Bag Bans

I went to Ralphs today and didn't realize they had stopped using the thin bags, and I left my reusable bags in the car. I almost always use self-checkout, so I grabbed a short stack of paper bags to use. I didn't actually pay for the bags, using the 'brought my own bag' button used previously when t...
