Obituaries S. David Shor, started bag firm Duro Bag founder saw operations grow to seven sites S. David Shor, who founded Duro Bag Manufacturing Co. and as chairman of the board guided its growth to become one of the nation's top paper-bag manufacturers, died Tuesday at Jewish Hospital. He was 77. Although they might not know it, shoppers use Duro's products to carry items purchased at department stores, groceries, fast-food restaurants and other places. Duro's clients have included Bloom-ingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, The Kroger Co. and McDonald's. One of the company's innovations was to put workers' names inside bags to encourage employees to take pride in their work. Mr. Shor, of East Walnut Hills, started the company in 1953 after selling his interest in a Covington-based bag manufacturer. At the time, he had but one small plant in Ludlow, Ky., and a handful of employees. Now, Duro employs more than 1,200 people at its plants and warehouses in Ludlow, Covington and Richwood, Ky.; Brownsville, Texas; Hudson, Wis.; Tampa, Fla.; and Matamoros, Mexico. Dorothy M.
