During the Covid-19 pandemic we would like to sent special thanks to Marianos for having dedicated check out lines for customers bringing their own bags and bagging themselves. And to Costco for having staff wiping carts between each customer and encouraging customers to bag in their cars into their own bags. Thank you for keeping your patrons safe. Let us know if you know of other stores that should be recognized!
