Plastic Bags are Back at San Francisco’s Lucky Supermarkets? Yep

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

You know me, I’m a regular Eli Whitney on a lawn mower and I love my French fries, so imagine my shock when my weekly potaters from the Lucky Super got wrapped in a plastic shopping bag yesterday.

So let’s see here, San Francsico’s “new” Lucky started off a few years back with red and white shopping bags (oh no! Ed Jew! – yes, he was there that day, along with the undercover Federales who were stalking him at the time) that fell apart easily, then, I don’t know, they had paper bags, then paper bags with handles, then paper bags without handles recently, and now this:

They’re free. They’re built to last. They have a Halloween theme. What more could you ask for?

How about a commercial for “Got Your Bags?” These bags also have that. 

You know me, I’m a firestarter, a twisted firestarter, so I like the convenience of having a ready supply of paper bags to use as accelerants when I’m arsoning parked cars. But if this is the future of shopping bags, I can live with it.

These things should last a long time and be very easy to pack up for reuse.

So, hurray for the new bags, I guess. At least they don’t fall apart with a quickness the way the older plastic bags did.  

Read all about it, after the jump.
