Fred Meyer official statement
Several months ago, I sent an email to the Fred Meyer Corp, requesting their policy on carry in Fred Meyer stores.
Here is the reply from the Director of Public Affairs.
So it seems their policy is about equal to that of Wal-Mart, etc.
Dear Mr. XXXXXXX:
Thank you for your email.
Our policy on guns in our stores is simply to comply with the law.
We recognize and respect the right to carry a weapon and we are aware that not everyone who has a weapon has a concealed weapon permit. However, we serve all varieties of Customers in our stores – we do not discriminate based on anything – not gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or opinion. So, as I’m sure you are aware, there may be times when an unconcealed weapon is upsetting, particularly to some mothers who are shopping with their children. If you have a concealed weapon permit, we would appreciate it if you would conceal your weapon in our stores, but we recognize that you do not have to by law.
Director, Public Affairs
