Choices Markets today announced it will no longer be offering single-use plastic grocery bags at checkout. 

This includes the Burnaby store on 10th Avenue in Crest Plaza.

"As part of our commitment to sustainability, we'll still have recycled paper bags available and will continue to offer a five-cent refund when you bring a reusable bag from home," said a news release from Choices Markets.
Choices Markets is a local, B.C.-owned grocer offering natural, organic and specialty foods.

Currently with ten locations, Choices Markets is celebrating 30 years in business.

B.C. in September made it easier for cities to ban single-use plastic bags.
