The retailer, which also sells American flags, is partnering with local Boy Scouts, American Legions, VFWs, and military organizations that will hold special flag retirement ceremonies that conform to the United States Flag Code.

Now in its third year of accepting American flags, Big Y has collected over 10,000.

“As a symbol of our being an American owned supermarket, Big Y is proud to help our communities by properly retiring their worn, tattered or soiled American Flags,” said Big Y CEO Donald D’Amour, in a statement.
