Stores That Give Discounts For BYOB

Some stores will give the consumer a discount for bringing their own bags. Typically it is 5-10 cents/bag which isn't going to put your kids through college, but it is a win-win situation since it doesn't cost the store anything to do this (they would have paid for the plastic bags anyway). 

I know that Hartland Market and Good Harvest Market (see links) both offer such rebates for bringing your own bag. Does anyone know of any other stores (grocery or retail) in our area who do this? Let us know so we can pass on the good news. 

As a challenge this month, what if we each ask one store to start a BYOB discount?

Just heard that Pick and Save will give you a discount for cloth bags. I don't think they have done this for me automatically, but I will ask next time. I know the money isn't much but I think psychologically it motivates most people to "get a deal".

Would still love to hear from anyone who knows of other places that give the bag discount.

Ooooh! And I just used 5 cloth bags on my weekend grocery trip! I don't think I got a discount, but I will definitely ask next time.
