    All of the valley Whole Foods have a new policy, which is a no-firearms sign in the front of their store, and they are enforcing it. I carry concealed and open for a while in WF, no problems. Today, they told me when entering it was a new policy in the Phoenix area.

    Thoughts?

    We need to appeal to the CEO of Whole Foods, and convince him to change the policies. I've been working on a short document at home that I think may be convincing for (local) business owners. I'm not sure if it will appeal to CEO types.

    Anyway, reading one of the threads was kinda funny. People calling to boycott Whole Foods because of the CEO's healthcare article/views. I gotta say, that was the ONLY thing I truly liked about that store and fully supported. (EDIT: Ok, I also liked their coffee and used to go there instead of Starbucks for my morning fix...) (Not often that you see a CEO come out and not tow the liberal healthcare agenda line.)

    Alas, he's damned on that front since most of his customer base would love nothing more than to see Obamacare go live. And he is also damned on another front for the anti-firearm postings.

    Oh well, thankfully I have no desire to pay premium prices to eat the latest eco-horkin-fiber-chunks cereal. =)

    In Tucson we have a few Sunflower Supermarkets that sell organic and processed foods. Lot's of libs and "Oddball" types shop there.

    From my experience shopping at Sunflower, it seems that OC/CC is accepted there.

    CEO John Mackey is a pretty staunch free-market libertarian. If you run this up the flagpole, I imagine it will get his attention.

    I love that place. We get all our groceries there. Never had any problems.
