Beginning Friday, July 1, Wegmans will be removing single-use plastic grocery bags from its six remaining Virginia stores and all four North Carolina stores, including the Chapel Hill location. The company previously announced in April its intention to eliminate single-use plastic bags by the end of 2022, with the company sharing earlier this month that it would make the switch in North Carolina too. 'While paper grocery bags will continue to be available for a 5-cent charge per bag,' said a company statement, 'Wegmans' goal is to shift customers to reusable bags, the best option to solve the environmental challenge of single-use grocery bags.
