Market Basket.

Supermarket claims customers are stealing baskets because of plastic bag ban

New Zealand shoppers have not responded well to the island’s phasing out of single-use plastic bags at grocery stores — and now they’re reportedly stealing baskets from supermarkets.

Countdown supermarket in Auckland removed single-use plastic bags from its stores last month, and in the time since, it has gone from 200 shopping baskets to about six…

Now there’s a great idea!  My next visit to the Market Basket in Plymouth (the town banned single-use plastic bags this year) I’m making off with a Market Basket market basket!
