Albertsons Companies is asking its customers to not openly carry firearms in its stores.

The request of the companies’ customers came in the form of a tweet from the account for all 19 brands operated by Albertsons Companies.

It is similar to language on the Albertsons Companies website, reading: “Albertsons Companies respectfully asks customers to not openly carry firearms in our stores unless they are authorized law enforcement officers.”

As KIVI TV reports, Albertsons isn’t alone.

After two high-profile mass shootings at a Walmart, stores are requesting customers not bring weapons onto company property. Kroger, the company which owns Fred Meyer stores, announced earlier that customers were asked not to openly carry firearms either.

There is no custom code to display.
