After recent post on Facebook stating that Walmart would go bagless on July 1st, FM 92’s News began investigating this claim for our community.
FM 92 New Director spoke with Lorinda Eissler a manager at Butler Walmart about is community issue. She stated that she had no knowledge of this, and that Butler Walmart would continue to have bags for their customers shopping.
After continued research about Walmart going bagless FM 92 discovered that some Walmart in the United States are bagless due to State and Local laws that prohibit one-time plastic bags from being used.
Our State, local county, and the surrounding counties do not have a law, so our local Walmart’s will not be going bagless any time soon.
