Wohlner’s Neighborhood Grocery Banning Plastic Grocery Bags

Omaha, Neb.Wohlner’s Neighborhood Grocery & Deli, Omaha’s oldest grocery operation, is joining the local, national and global push to put environment first by banning plastic grocery bags.

Starting June 1, Wohlner’s customers will be able to choose paper bags or sturdy, re-usable fabric bags.

  • Fabric grocery bags will be available for purchase in-store for $1 each.
  • Customers who use Wohlner’s re-useable bags will receive 5-percent off regular-priced items every time they shop at the store. (The 5-percent discount excludes tobacco, stamps and customer service items.)

“Protecting the environment takes everyone doing their part. We’re excited to do ours,” says Mike Schwartz, Wohlner’s third generation owner.

In business for more than 100 years, Wohlner’s is known for its complete selection of groceries, fresh produce and sundries; the finest meats cut and wrapped by onsite butchers; a take-out deli with hot prepared foods; and an upscale wine/beer/spirits department.
