AUBURN, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Even though New York State’s plastic bag ban doesn’t take effect until next year, Walmart is already getting a head start on the potential impact.

Starting next week, the company’s Auburn location will be testing out its grocery pickup service without using any plastic bags. Customers will have the option of buying reusable bags during their checkout online or they can bring their own.
