I always have the best intentions of bringing reusable bags to the grocery store.
But the reality is I leave them in the house or they’re in the other car. If I forget the bags and I’m just dropping by for a few items, I will find an awkward way to wrap my arms around a bag of flour, bottle of shampoo and block of cheese rather than take home another plastic bag.
I walk out of the store followed by confused looks from people who think I’m either shoplifting or silly to eschew modern conveniences.
But yesterday I remembered the bags at Giant Food Stores on Carlisle in West Manchester Township. And I’m really glad I did.
Right now, Giant is actively entering customers in its Earth Day Free Groceries Sweepstakes.
From now until June 1, if you bring reusable bags to Giant, or mail in an entry, you will be entered to win one of two grand prizes: $7,800 in Giant gift cards.
Individuals or households can enter once a day, according to the official rules.
Other prizes include 10 $500 gift cards.
