Yes.
We have 15+ bags neatly stowed in the trunk of our car.
Big ones, small ones, wine bottles ones.

For shopping at places that don’t offer bags or for your own sense of pride? Whatever you carry out that store is packaged in plastic or cardboard the bags are ususally under 1% the plastic you carelessly consume. The plastic of a loaf of bread, for example. I find it sickening that you walk out the store with the loaf of bread without removing plastic.

I find it so sickening I need a sick bag, but then against I think about the environmental consequences of sick bags.

I remember Wegman's when it was just a local grocery store (Syracuse in the late 70s), before it expanded and morphed into what it is now.

It's one of the things I'm most looking forward to when we move back.

I remember the one in Sterling, VA, near Dulles Airport, and still refer to it as DisneyLand for Food.

Thanks for the responses RE Natural Grocers. I agree about the vitamin/alternative medicine section, but believe it's not any different than Sprouts in that regard. I DO like the body care section; the wide range of essential oils is great for using in my own diffusers, not for any health reasons, I just like the added aroma to the needed added humidity in bedrooms. I've really just shopped the produce for the few things I can't easily find elsewhere, or WF is just too expensive.

+1 for Savory Spice Shop....it's walking distance for me, I get all my spices/herbs there, not in small part because I can buy in small, lightweight resealable bags so I can use up before they get stale, and don't have all the extra weight and bulk from glass in the spice drawer I have in my little apartment kitchen.
