Posted October 20, 2018 04:13:50 A study published in the Journal of Consumer Research found that menards’ paper bags offer a better value than their plastic counterparts, but that the quality of paper bags is far inferior.
In the study, researchers from the University of Melbourne and Stellenbosch University analyzed the price of 1,500 paper bags purchased from supermarkets around Australia, compared to 1,000 paper bags from menards.
“We used a large sample to estimate the cost of paper to produce a paper bag, and then we used a simple, standardised method to estimate its value,” lead researcher Dr Sam Whelan told Business Insider.
“The paper bag is about 5 per cent of the weight of the paper, so the value of the bag is 5 per-cent of the total weight.
This is a very small difference in weight, and the difference is a lot smaller than we expected.”
Whelan and his team looked at the different products on the market and compared the paper bag’s price to the paper bags’ price.
The study looked at both the price per bag and the total cost of the bags.
For example, a paper bags bag would be $3.99, but a menards would cost $4.99.
“Our study found that the value was much higher in menards bags, which cost $5.50, or $2.29 less per bag than paper bags,” he said.
“We think this is because of the quality control of the packaging.
It is very, very expensive to make a paper box.”
The researchers say that menard paper bags should be considered a “value-added product” because it is manufactured by a small business and it costs less than $10 a bag.
“You can do a lot more research on the materials you use, the care and attention you put into it,” Whelin said.
The study found menards menards,the paper bag trend,a big change in the way menards are manufactured,and a new way of thinking about paper bags.
Menards are a large Australian manufacturer of paper, and it is a trend that will be seen across the country, he said, noting that the paper industry is changing.
He said that the menards business model could change because menards will need to shift away from its traditional manufacturing model, which is a paper-based business.
“If you look at the way the paper box has been made, it is the same as what the menard business model is, so I think it will be very interesting to see how menards moves towards the paper boxes,” Wherlins said.
