Since the bag ban has been in place for two and half months, I thought I would cruise by my former Smart & Final in Capistrano Beach and see how things are going.
When I got to the checkout, there were lines for checkout at five cash registers. I immediately saw the checkout process had slowed way down.
Since I did this last Saturday, I thought I would try again on a Wednesday to recheck. Sure enough six customers in two checkout lines were moving at a snail’s pace. When it was my turn, I asked the checker if things had slowed down because of the bag ban.
She said, “Definitely, we all noticed it right away.”
So I suppose the council is pleased with this result, causing unnecessary delays for grocery store customers and harassing them at the same time. Good work.
