Wegmans Ask Customers To Not Openly Carry Firearms In Their Stores

ROCHESTER – Wegmans has joined the list of retailers asking their customers not to openly carry firearms into their stores.

The Rochester based grocery chain took to social media Thursday saying there’s nothing more important than the safety of their customers and employees.

They added, “The sight of someone with a gun can be alarming, and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at Wegmans.”

Wegmans joined Walmart, CVS and Walgreens in the decision to ask customers to keep guns out.

Walmart also said it would stop selling handgun and short-barrel rifle ammunition in the aftermath of a string of mass shootings, including one last month inside an El Paso, Texas store that killed 22 customers, the deadliest in the company’s history.
