MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I typically buy the generic brand of kitchen bags because I have really had no problem with them, until recently, there was a sale on hefty bags, and I had a coupon, so I got a good deal. I figured Hefty brand garbage bags must at LEAST be as durable as the cheap generic brands. right? WRONG. They are WORSE. Every bag I take out, ends up ripping at the base of the flaps, making it impossible to get out of the cannister, unless youre able to get a good grip around the bottom of it. Every single bag I fill, ends up ripping in the same spot. Its awful. I have never had problems with the generics like this..... You would think a brand thats name stands for strength would have better bags than the cheapies, but they fail miserably with me. Ill be sticking to the generics.

every single bag ripping in the same spot sounds like hefty put out a bad batch. might contact them directly, chances are they will try to make it up to you.

I also had trouble with Hefty trash bags breaking so I went back to buying the Target brand which I have never had a problem with.

Guess their bags are as bad as their cups! Occasionally their cups leak and your beverage spills all over your lap or the floor. Unfortunately, the holes in the cups aren't typically detected until it's too late and you're wearing your beverage. And FORGET about calling customer service! Their customer service is terrible! Their 'solution' to your ruined carpet is to have YOU mail back the defective cups to them in exchange for a coupon for more cups. (So much for your ruined carpet!) Buy another brand!
