Bags: easy (code only) money saver and environmental improvement

First, I'd like to say thank you for your three locations here in Hickory, NC. Visiting Sheetz is an efficient, enjoyable experience. On the road, I appreciate all the convenient healthy choices. I frequently visit my closest Sheetz (I'm there typing this now!), often for coffee or sparkling water, but sometimes I get an MTO item to eat on-site. I like being an environmentalist, particularly in cases where it's easy, low-hanging fruit. I always fold up my bag and put it in my recycling bin at home.

I have a proposal that requires nothing more than some coding. In fact, it may save you a great deal of money. My suggestion is that in the on-screen menu, code to prompt for "do you want a bag" if it sees the item count is two or less. I would imagine half of the customers, especially if they are dining in, will say no, and save you a penny or two. I'm also in support of reducing the burden on our municipal landfill. Thanks for your consideration!
