Wegmans to Test Eliminating Plastic Grocery Bags

RICHMOND, VA — Wegmans is testing out getting rid of single-use plastic bags.

The grocery store chain–which just opened a location in Raleigh and has plans to open locations in Cary, Chapel Hill and Wake Forest–announced Monday it would be removing plastic bags from two stores in Virginia.

When the pilot program begins on Oct. 21, the two stores will have paper bags available for purchase at 5 cents per bag. The money collected from that bag fee will then be donated to Feed More, which is the food bank near those two stores.
