Bi-Lo Stores...CCW Not Allowed
In response to this query sent to Bi-Lo Stores today:
"I'm sorry if this is posted elsewhere on your company's website, but if so, I could not find the answer.
What is your company's policy with regard to those customers who are licensed by their state to carry a concealed firearm shopping in your store while so carrying?
I received this response:
"Thank you for contacting us about our firearm policy. We have signs posted
at our stores stating that firearms are not allowed.
Manager Consumer Relations
PLEASE NOTE NEW PHONE # AS OF 05-04-2006
I saw a letter which Euclidean sent to Best Buy a while back, and I intend to use it as a model to craft a reply to Ms. Youngblood. In the meantime, if any of the rest of you shop at Bi-Los in the southeast, you may want to send comments as well.
By the way, the sign they do have posted at only one of two entrances of one of their stores in Middle Tennessee, a small one-and-a-half-inch by two-inch panel of a revolver with a "no" slash superimposed and the wording "No weapons allowed" as part of a panel of perhaps twenty-one advertisements and announcements, does NOT meet the Tennessee notification requirements for warning CCW holders that they are not welcome.
