Hannaford's Portland, Maine, stores prepare for bag fee

Hannaford Bros. is helping its Portland, Maine, shoppers prepare for an upcoming disposable bag fee by giving away reusable bags for free.

A city ordinance that charges a 5-cent fee on disposable paper and plastic bags goes into effect on April 15. The fee applies to grocery stores and convenience stores where food makes up more than 2% of sales.

Hannaford’s Portland stores will bag all groceries in free reusable totes (a $1.29 value) from March 29 until April 14.
