Brown paper bags

Does anyone know a local (Nashville, TN) source of grocery paper bags? I’d like to get a hundred or so for use as targets. Buying them on-line generally means almost doubling the purchase price because of shipping charges.

    It would be of help if LJ and this were better integrated.

    You can get brown craft paper by the roll at craft stores. If it must be a brown paper bag you can check out a local janitorial / food service supply. If your order is significant enough they’ll deliver for free.

    Simple search

    Small bag


    Their store is quirky you’ll have to search rather than browse.

    I only picked them because they have an online presence, check and see if the school has a supplier who will give you a better deal.

    Try this company, brought them up on a simple Google search

    You could ask a grocery store. They may be willing to just order a few extra, next time they restock…

    If the old H.G. Hills grocery store on West End Ave. and White Bridge Rd. were still open, and I were still bagging groceries there, I’d hook you up. Considering that was… 30 years ago, can’t help you.

    Sam’s Club stocks brown paper bags.

    I just ask for extras when I get groceries, they never mind if I grab a handful. I could probably amass the hundred in 5-6 trips just by asking nicely.

    Sam’s has rolls of brown and white paper in mongo-size … butcher paper and packing.

    I assume you know about cutting them into cheap person-shape targets? For anyone curious, you slash the bag the easy way while it is folded, and then cut what used to be the front&back bottom folds out, leaving the side.

  7. Oleg,
    Try either Sam’s club, costco or Gordon Food Service. I know gfs has them and you don’t need a membership.

    GFS in Murfreesboro had them a few days ago–I got some for a Cub Scout project.

    What size do you need?
    If they’re the smaller, lunch sack size ones, you can get them at a dollar store. lets you order things to the store to avoid shipping, too! 🙂
    As for larger, more grocery sized ones, I think Sam’s Club sells them.
    Even larger, yard/landscaping bags can be had at Home Depot, although for that amount I would think that you would want to call a local store and have them pre-ordered. That way you can get out of paying shipping. 🙂

    Go to your nearest Aldi grocery store, they sell the bags there for .05 apiece, plus the groceries there are Uber cheap…
