I was FORCED to take a plastic bag at the Carters outlet store last year. The cashier said she could get fired for not putting my things in their plastic bag. I explained that I had a bag and didn't want plastic, but it didn't matter. She was saying the bags were proof that customers paid for the items. Umm, I thought that's what the receipts were for!!!
So, I took the bag, walked out of the store, put the items into my own bag, then brought her the plastic bag back to reuse for the next customer! Can't bully me into keeping a plastic bag
