    Sears forbids carry in their stores...

    My comments:
    K-mart has always been anti-gun. Recall when 9-11 occurred, K-mart terminated all gun and ammo sales and then completely discontinued the sale of guns and ammo.

    Now, right after the Sears-K-Mart merge, Sears forbids carry. Makes you wonder doesn't it? They will be getting an e-mail from me stating that neither I nor mine will be doing business with K-mart or Sears.

    Has anyone seen a sign at Sears? I haven't been to Sears in quite some time, so I don't know.

    Sears

    Just went to Sears North of PGH. last week.
    Did not see anything posted. Of course I was not really looking for any signs....omens...or superstitions.
    I carried in there. What can they do...ask me to leave if I walk too close to a giant magnet in there and get stuck?

    There's no sign at the Sears near here, it's part of one of the malls, never seen a sign a the mall either.

    Another advantage to carrying Glocks. Less chance of getting stuck on giant magnets.

    Sigs are AL alloy with stainless slides or all stainless - hence they aren't magnetic at all. Well, just a little.

    Here's my impression: Sear's isn't posting, but it is nonetheless their policy. Shopping with them condons their policy.

    I hardly ever shop there, but if I can get confirmation of their policy, I will boycott them. I have been a part of two successful boycotts Ė Home Depot and Best Buy. Both quickly saw the error of their ways. I was also part of the K-Mart boycott. They didnít mend their evil ways, and it hurt them. Iím sure it was not the only reason, but it was after gunowners started boycotting them that they really took a tumble. I think they pulled completely out of Texas.

    JT,

    I had heard rumors on Home Depot but not Best Buy. Can you give me the scoop?

    Ron - I made a reply on your email thread

    Home Depot, Best Buy - in fact all stores in my parts have no signs up - I think PA is good in this respect - tho were anyone to ''try it on'' they'd soon be notified of loss of my business as well as any other folks I could inform.

    FWIW, in Tennessee a business can be a no carry by just "declaring" it, they don't have to post or announce. It's up to the CCW to determine the business's policy.

    Here is a thread about it...

    http://www.combatcarry.com/vbulletin...ead.php?t=3002

    In the latter posts you'll see that they gave in.

    I replied in the email thread that Sears and Kmart had merged, but I see that info is in this thread.

    I've never seen a Sears posted as no carry.

    The mall in Macon, GA, was doubled in size several years ago. Bascially, they built a second mall beside the old one and connected them. To get from one side of the mall to the other you have to go through the Sears store.

    South Florida has no problem with CC in Home Depot. Same with Loews. Best Buy used to deny concealed carry, but dropped that policy. I haven't been to Sears recently, but I'd be surprised if they said no to CCW.
