Lenny's Sub Shop next to work posted
My co-worker told me the other day that the Lenny's sub shop right next to where we work is now posted as a no carry zone.
Today he and I went over there and sure enough, there was the stupid sign on the door. They, unlike most other places I have seen actually have a sign that meets the legal criteria for the signage.
Anyway, neither of us was carrying at the time as we were at work( ) but we went in, asked for the manager and when he came over we told him that we had seen the sign and we would gladly follow their wishes. We told him that, as we work next door, we typically eat there a couple of times a week but we wouldn't be doing that anymore and we would be sure to tell all the other people we work with who carry that they are posted. (this could be well over $1000 a week for them with the number of people that work with us who eat there just because of the convenience of the location) Then we both handed him the "NO carry = No $$$" business cards we both carry for just these kind of situations.
I also explained to him that I would be posting this info and the picture of the sign on several internet forums that have many, many members.
He thanked us for being civil about it and said it is the owners call on the sign not his. We told him we understood that and to please pass the info and cards on to the owner and he said he would.
So, one less place to eat but the possibility that we may sway another business to the common sense side with out courteous attitudes and civil tone.
If anyone in the Memphis Tennessee area is interested, the address of this particular Lenny's is:
521 S Highland St
Memphis, TN 38111-4303
Phone: (901) 454-7077
It is in the University if Memphis area, right across from the new condo where the couple of abducted from the parking garage and raped and shot this summer and where we had a nut running around the area with a shotgun robbing people and shooting them for no reason last summer. This particular Lenny's is in an area that really makes sense to carry in.
I plan to email Lenny's corporate HQ and ask if this is a company policy or just this one site.

I really hope you sway them on this ordeal. I think it may take them a long time to see the bottom line if at all. Since you posted the address.......I could send them a get well card if you think that might help. Good luck with it.

Sure, go ahead Ram Rod, that's why I posted it. Maybe I should post the phone number too....

I wonder if they'd like to know that report of their foolish decision has made it all the way to Nevada?

I maybe going to Memphis soon (end of year) and I'll be sure to let thew know some Floridians will make sure not to go to their establishment.

um...... good to know..... I would say the best way is to stop going to ALL Lenny's Sub Shops. We don't have them here, but sounds like a franchise, just let Corp. headquarters know that members from this forum will not be partaking of Lenny's subs. They may pressure the owner as well........

I think I will call and let them know that I will be passing through from Arkansas and will not be eating there. It might let them know how advertising works.

...and I like RamRod's idea of a get well card, sort of a get well/good luck on recovery of your lost business.....we need to have some printed, maybe sell them in the DC store

We don't have those sub shops where I live, but thanks for the post.
As I was walking my dog yesterday afternoon on the grounds of the nearby WV Dept. of Motor Vehicles building, I saw not one, but 4 or 5 "No Firearms" signs on the side doors. The Parole Office is located in there as well as some Telemarketing firm. I guess we can add that to the list of weapons-banned-for-law-abiding-folks now too, huh?
