Decided to go out and support my local High Street by doing some Black Friday shopping in person, instead of online. Selected 3 gift sets, two quite large, larger than a standard carrier bag.
Was paying at the till and asked for a couple of their large bags, surprise surpise they didn't have any plastic carrier bags of any description, all they had was small paper carrier bags - a la Primark, the assistant did say they hadn't realised the hadn't ordered in time - so no large bags, in fact no plastic bags at all.
I paid 7p for the paper one and put the smaller gift set in, it ripped straight away.
To say I was fuming was an understament, I felt like a thief walking through the store with these gift sets under my arm, was expecting to get hauled back into the store.
If I'd decided to have a browse and ordered online for delivery or click and collect they would've been in some sort of wrapping.
If High Street stores want to keep and encourage our custom away from online shopping then they need to pull their fingers out.
BTW I did have some standard bags with me but were too small,
