Welsh Government's new legislation

5p bags

In line with the Welsh Government's new legislation, from 1st October 2011 there is a 5p charge for each carrier bag used.

5p Charge

As of 1 October 2011 it will be a legal requirement for all retailers in Wales to charge customers a minimum of 5p for each carrier bag they supply. This means that when you visit any of our stores in Wales, from 1 October we'll have to charge you 5p for each carrier bag, but of course there won't be any charge if you choose to use your own bags. As required by the Welsh Government we are donating the proceeds from each carrier bag we sell to charity. The Ashley Family Foundation, a charity who support projects in Wales. Further information about the foundation can be found at The www.ashleyfamilyfoundation.org.uk

We'll publish annual reports online so you can see exactly how many bags have been sold and how the proceeds have been used.
