    North marysville albertsons

    I went grocery shopping at the North Marysville Albertsons today. I shop there quite frequently. I have never had any issues with OC there. When I got done paying for my stuff the manager was walking by with a till in her hand. She stopped and looked at me.

    MANAGER: "I just gotta ask. Are you a cop or do you just carry that around?"
    Me: "No I'm not a cop. I'm a Law abiding Citizen who carries for self defense. What would it matter if I was a cop anyways? It's perfectly legal to OC in WA."
    MAN: " Well I don't feel comfortable with you carrying that in this store. Please do not come back in here with it."
    ME: " Ok ma'am if that's the case then I will not be coming back in here again. You're losing a costumer who spends 100's of dollars a month here." Have a good day."

    I have written to the Albertsons Costumer Service email that was on the website. I informed them that I will not be shopping there anymore until I get a reply back on what ever their solution is. I also told them that I know of others carriers who shop there that I will be informing not to shop there anymore because the manager is uncomfortable with it.

    So don't shop at Albertsons. They are not OC friendly. I will let everyone know when I get a response.

    That's too bad. I OCd at albertsons in federal way today. I got nary a glance. I'm thinking it was just a paranoid manager.

    I OC in the Federal Way Albertson's often. I have OCd in the Albertsons in Vancouver, where the Kirby incident occurred. I have many friends who work at Albertsons. I would think that a follow up letter to the HQ will correct the managers attitude. Also, being a Sunday it is unlikely that this was NOT the store director, but rather a key person.

    I'm going to the one in Lacey Monday to get the $5.00 lobster tails. Of course I'll be OC'ing. Will report any issue.

    Rogue manager.

    I've OC'd dozens of times at the Mukilteo & Oak Harbor Albertsons, even been thru the manager's line with barely a comment.

    I've OC's in Albertsons , Safeway, and Fred Meyers here in Monroe no problem.

    The Safeway in Redmond, Winco in Federal Way, QFC on Novelty hill in Redmond.

    Good job in writing the letter. I support your efforts.
    I knew a guy, with 6 children, who used to shop at a safeway (either one in Maryville or Arlington) and was asked to put his gun in his car. He had 3 or 4 shopping carts full of groceries, was told that he could continue shopping after he put gun out in his car, he told the manager that if he went out the doors he was not coming back and was leaving the carts where they were now. The manager told him he didn't want him armed in the store my 'friend' left and had stopped shopping there for years. I understand they got a new manager sometime after that so he started shopping there again.

    You said "Manager". Which "level" manager was he? Seems like Albertson's has 5 or 6 levels of management in every store. Store Manager, Asst, 2nd Asst, etc. Cashier Asst Mgr, and then of course all the "Department Managers". Seems like rather than giving them any more money they just give them a title when they promote.

    As for carrying in Albertsons? Whenever I go in there I OC. Mostly I prefer to shop elsewhere because of their prices.

    Found this post by NavyLCDR in another thread in a forum search.

    Not sure what manager it was. I just saw the tag that said manager. I was to pissed off. Plus I could tell by her demeanor that I was not going to get anywhere with her. That's why I just said what I said and left.

    I guess the next time you are in the store you can tell her you have permission to be armed on Albertsons private property, by Albertsons Corporate policy. Cool.

    I have not had to many issues with them. I'm thinking its the "tan" lady manager that you encountered. she always walks around that store like she is upset or has a stick in her rear. Interested in the response.

    The Store Director called me this morning. I specified I want this interaction in email, but apparently that's to hard for her. When I explained what happened she told me that she thought that in the state of WA it has to be concealed. I told her she is mistaken and informed her of the laws. So basically she told me after talking for a few minutes that Albertsons does not ban weapons, but they have to be concealed. If they are in the open, her staff has the right to ask you to leave. She's got the out of sight out of mind theory going. I asked her what's the difference? I'm following the law either way. She tried to use safety as an excuse. She said she doesn't want to loose me as a costumer, but that when I come in I put a jacket on to cover it up. I told her I would not do that, especially in this weather. Way to hot for that. She said she was going to do some research on OC in WA. I don't think she is really going to. I even offered to bring some pamplets to her. She said I could if I wanted, but would still prefer I CC. I told her that There are other OCers who shop there all the time and no one has problems with it. I even told her that I spend hundreds of dollars a month there. She didn't seem to care. I will bring her a pamplet later. Not like it it will do much though.

    I mentioned that stuff too. She has the mentality that it's different for civilians like so many others do.

    I spend hundreds of dollars per month there. I go there because I prefer their meat Department over the one at Winco across the street even though Winco is cheaper. That store has been bleeding customers to Winco, and they just lost another one.... me!

    Perhaps you should let them know. In fact, if everyone that has responded in this thread indicating that they never had a problem at that store were to suddenly contact corporate and let them no why you were no longer going to shop there, this might actually make a difference.

    Remember, in order for a boycott to work, it has to involve more than 2 or 3 people. Just ask The Brady Bunch
