Meijer is joining a growing list of businesses who are asking their customers not to open carry. To date, Walmart, Kroger, CVS and Walgreens have asked the same.

Meijer tweeted the following yesterday,

The safety of our customers and team members is our top priority, so we respectfully request that our customers do not open carry firearms at Meijer. We’ve made this decision because open carry can create an environment that makes our customers and team members feel unsafe.
