Kroger announced Tuesday it will no longer permit customers to openly carry firearms, even in states where it is legal.
This marks a 180 degree policy shift for the grocer, which made news in 2015 by announcing Kroger stores would honor laws of the states and communities in which each store was located.

At that time, Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman told CNBC gun control groups were pressuring the grocer to ban open carry, however, the grocer was pledging to operate in light of the law: “If the local gun laws are to allow open carry, we’ll certainly allow customers to do that based on what the local laws are. We don’t believe it’s up to us to legislate what the local gun control laws should be. It’s up to the local legislators to decide to do that.”
But on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, Reuters reported Kroger’s announcement customers are being asked to discontinue openly carrying firearms.
