We respectfully require that our employees and customers do not bring firearms into our stores unless they are authorized law enforcement. We acknowledge and respect the rights of everyone involved in this important, often emotionally charged, debate. As we do with other important issues related to our business, we listen to our customers and team—and use the feedback we receive in our decision making.
All the law enforcement we work with every day have told us that they try to abide by the posted signs at any establishment unless they are there conducting official business. However, due to the recent issues our country has faced, some are now required or advised to carry side arms at all times. For customers who are law enforcement personnel and are required to carry, we ask that they present the proper police identification card in order to enter the store and yard with the side arm. Also, law enforcement, along with other service personnel, always receive free entry on the yard with their identification.
