Posted on by Paula Gallagher

Just a reminder that starting January 1, Montgomery County's 5-cent bag ordinance begins. The tax will apply to paper and plastic bags at most retail stores. One exception is pharmacy bags holding prescription drugs. The goal is to reduce waste and encourage recycling!

We encourage you to bring your reusable shopping bags when you visit the store!
