ALDI, Meijer ask customers to not openly carry guns in stores

Meijer and ALDI now join Walmart, Kroger, CVS, Walgreens, and other retailers in asking customers to not bring firearms into stores or not openly carry them.

The Boise grocery company joins a growing roster of national retailers making such requests in response to the continuing scourge of mass shootings. Meijer has more than 200 stores across the Midwest and is headquartered in Grand Rapids.

The announcement comes a week after Walmart asked customers not to open carry in their stores, and it said it would stop the sale of handguns and short-barrel rifle ammunition.

"At ALDI, the safety of our employees, customers and the community is our highest priority". Kroger stopped selling guns at their Fred Meyer stores past year.

Mass shootings have killed hundreds of Americans in the past five years - most recently on August 31, when a shooter in Odessa, Texas, killed eight people.
