We have purchased two good platform scales (see picture) to make it easier for customers who want to reduce the use of plastic bags by bringing their own reusable bags. There will be a $.25 discount for each customer supplied bag – way better than $.05 at the grocery store!
We will weigh fruit in customer supplied bags (and our bags when part full) – $1.10 per pound 1 to 20 pounds, $.90 per pound over 20 pounds – equivalent to our by the bag prices.
We will continue to sell fruit in our bags at the per bag prices to minimize check out time – especially for customers with lots of bags.
If you have lots of reusable grocery bags, please feel free to bring them.
Most grocery bags are larger than our 1/2 bushel bags – this one weighs 27 pounds when full.
