10 pence for a shopping bag in my local WH Smiths

I only brought one magazine but the woman in the store had a fair cheek to try and charge me 10 pence for a shopping bag. I found it disgusting and suprised to find the group is actually making a profit.

If they are making a profit as a group, maybe my local store is making a loss! Who knows, only their books would tell me that. But I sent an email to the customer services hoping for a responce.
