Plastic Bag Usage during the Coronavirus Pandemic

Some Encouraging Words From our CEO

It is impossible to have a conversation right now without discussing COVID-19. Our hearts and prayers are with those suffering from this illness and the families who have lost loved ones.

We understand the reservations that many are having regarding traditional inventory, supply and production levels, and we would like to reassure you that we are well situated to meet your requirements with our stock and custom product options. As an official “Essential Business,” our production and shipping will continue to operate uninterrupted by any Shelter in Place orders. Orders for Customer Pick Up will not be accepted. Some few Asian products may have very temporary out-of-stock status, but we don’t expect this to last long enough to create issues for most of our customers. Our domestic production is still operating 24/7, and there are no plans for even a temporary shutdown.

At Discount Plastic Bags, we already have several work-from-home personnel who serve you regularly. Our Customer Service department is open for extended business hours through the crisis. We will be open until 7:00 PM CDT in order to serve the west coast until 5:00 PM PDT. Out of an abundance of caution we have asked all office personnel to work from home.

Wuhan, China has many days reporting no new cases. We are encouraged by this news that there is reason to believe things will be back to normal soon. We will certainly be prepared to serve you, whether that is right now, tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. Your business is something for which we are very grateful, and we look forward to helping you in any way possible as we walk together through this temporary crisis.

Thank you for opting in to our newsletter. It is times like these that exhibit the importance of staying in touch. Please let us know how we may help you through any challenges that may arise. We stand ready to be of assistance.

Together, we’ll get through this thing intact!
