Michigan-based grocer Meijer is joining other big name retailers in asking customers not to open-carry guns in their stores. "We want our stores to feel safe & welcoming for all, so we respectfully ask customers to not openly carry firearms in our stores unless they are authorized law enforcement officers".

"At ALDI, the safety of our employees, customers and the community is our highest priority".

Meijer and ALDI are asking customers to not openly carry firearms into their stores. It's unclear if Meijer will make any changes to their sales of ammunition and firearms.

The request followed similar announcements from Walmart, Kroger and Walgreens in the wake of a mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart.

Last week, Kroger and Walmart requested customers to not openly carry firearms into its stores. Kroger stopped selling guns at their Fred Meyer stores a year ago.
