No official word on when the law will go into effect but Kroger is starting to implement it at area Cincinnati stores starting on June 1st, 2021. Customers can purchase a reusable bag in-store or bring their own. The only area store that will not be implementing this new law is the Norwood location due to it being under a separate municipality. Stores that do not comply will face a fine. Kroger is planning to transition all of its stores away from the use of plastic bags by 2025.
