GFS is Accepting Used Bags
As of 7.14.22
After a long hiatus, we are again accepting paper shopping bags for reuse. Please hand off your clean and in good condition bags to an employee at the Customer Service desk. We cannot take bags that are not clean - dust, pet hair, stains - or ripped. Please remove receipts and any other items from bags. There may be times when we are overloaded and cannot accept more bags. If we are unable to take your bags, whether due to condition or because we are maxed out, we are unable to dispose of them for you. We do accept bags from other stores, as long as they are suitable for packing groceries. We do not accept plastic bags.
At this time, we are not accepting containers for reuse and do not have a timeline for resuming this program. Reuse programs are extremely labor-intensive, and we, like virtually every business in Missoula and beyond, are dealing with the challenges of a very tight labor market. To avoid new packaging, we encourage customers to bring your own bags, shop in bulk using clean containers from home for those items where home-containers are permitted (please have us weigh them for you at a register before filling), and use eco-takeout containers for items with signage indicating that home-containers are prohibited. To find out more about our eco-takeout program, please stop by the Customer Service desk or visit the Deli Dept. page
