Bin Update!

Categories: Bin, Jacob's Mind, Shop

Hey all, just wanted to give everyone an update on the current shopping bin situation. If you’re not sure what a shopping bin is, it’s basically a plastic box made by InStore Products Limited. Most people are familiar with the PC GREEN Box version of this product, but now other stores are selling their own version of the bin in a wide array of colours!

The *NEW* Home Depot Bin

Just like RONA, The Home Depot has gotten into the bin game with their own line of shopping bins. Like their iconic orange bucket, The Home Depot offers their bins in orange,

and (unlike the bucket) in grey!

Unfortunately, when it comes to cost, these Home Depot bins are the most expensive ones I’ve seen yet, costing $6.97 each! That’s a whole dollar more expensive than the comparable Walmart bin (which is $5.97):

  • Hey Jacob, was just in the Wal-Mart in Salmon Arm, BC, today. In addition to the blue snd black bins you note, they have a new similar black verson that’s made in Canada by NOVO. Same price as the others, but this version has 10 ribs on the side, no slots on the top rim except for four for the strap handle attachment points, and a little slot cut in the bottom of each carry handle on the side of the bin. Doesn’t seem quite as rigid as the other ones.
