Coles supermarkets are ahead of many in small business retail in pitching reusable bags at the checkout. Take a look at thew photo and see the $2.00 bags they have placed at each checkout I the Coles outlets have seen in the last few days.

This is a smart move. It pitches the Coles business as concerned for the environment and on thee front foot in terms of reusable bags.

We can do this too thanks to plenty of suppliers offering access to low-cost quality reusable bags.

Select bags that look good, that appeal of what people like, place them at the counter, like Coles, and don’t seek to make too much money on them.

I think you will do better selling non-branded bags than branded as people will expect branded bags to come at no cost with purchases. I tapped to agree with that.
