    Winco

    Has anyone in AZ been booted from a Winco store for OC?

    See my thread under Nevada.

    What is a Winco?

    I have lived in Arizona most of 72 years and have never been in or seen a Winco. Perhaps I have lived a sheltered life.
    I have also OC'd many places inumerable times in AZ during those 72 years and never been questioned much less kicked out.
    If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.

    If it wasn't on the other side of the valley and 30+ minute drive I'd go find out. Never in that part of town..

    Response from Winco

    I just received a phone call from Mike Read, Public Relations Representative of Winco foods. He let me know that they have had lots of contact about this issue and have come to the conclusion that we are welcome in their stores open carry. He told me that they really didn't like it but would not fight it. He said as a private property they have the right to prohibit firearms but that they would not.

    No idea. I was asked to leave when I was barely in the store. Might go find out now.

    Returned

    The wife and I, 5 kids in tow, returned to Winco this afternoon. No hastles what so ever. No comments, no looks, nothing but smiles, as it should be. Were in the store about an hour.
    Looks like the word trickled down.
