William Low's bag

Donated by Tesco PLC
Museum number 1995-255

By the 1990s it was becoming commonplace for carrier bags to have the recycle and the "Keep Britain Tidy" message displayed alongside the company name and logo.

Known locally as "Willie Low's", William Low and Company began as one of Dundee’s many small groceries in 1868 growing into a supermarket chain with stores in most towns near its Dundee base. It traded as an independent business, largely managed by the family, from 1868 until 1994 when it became part of Tesco PLC.
