At this point we do not allow customers to bring in their own containers. There are two reasons for this: One is the issue of how to properly deduct the weight of your container once it’s filled. While it has been suggested to have customers write the weight on each container, sadly this is not a procedure we can follow since tare has to be properly deducted. The alternative is not the best either. You can just imagine the delays that might be caused by having to empty the container, weigh it, fill it again, then deduct the weight of the container… all at the checkstand. The second reason is the most important — food safety. While the majority of our friends would be like you and bring clean, sanitized containers, there is always a chance that by mistake a contaminated container would be brought in. This would put our bulk area at risk. We hope this better explains this policy.
We’re always looking for ideas on how we can better serve you. Feel free to send any ideas to us through email or post them on our Facebook page. We love working for you!
