Shoppers adjust to new 5-cent fee for bags in Minneapolis

LEILA NAVIDI – Star Tribune

Sarah Hachey carried her groceries out without a bag at North Market on Thursday, a day after Minneapolis' new rule took effect charging shoppers 5 cents for bags.

Ruth Johnson pushed her cart to the checkout at Oxendale's Market in south Minneapolis on Thursday and then realized she had forgotten something that should have been on her grocery list - a reusable bag.

"I'm ashamed of myself because the bags are in my trunk," Johnson said. "I don't mind paying 5 cents, but I think I should be more careful about remembering."
