    I noticed that Econo Foods in Houghton has a brand new "No Firearms" sign posted on their door, anyone know if the stores in Iron Mountain or Marquette have the same posting? I'm trying to figure out if this is a store decision, or if it applies to all of the stores operated as Econo/TNC.

    I know!!!! First Charter Communications, then AT&T, and now Econo Foods!!!! The first 2 are easy to avoid, but our grocery store choices are limited to Wal-Mart (horrible selection) and a local one (extremely high prices).

    At this rate, Gander Mtn will be rescinding there pro carry signs soon

    Looks like I will either have to pay the price at Pats or bow down to walmart. This really upsets me.

    We don't go to Econo so, eh, we use Pats for grub. We are in the Shopco next to Econo lots though and will be watching for signage there.springerdave.

    My problem with pats is their prices on many items are a lot more than econo. On a few items i noticed double the price for the exact item.

    I know!!! For example, Ramen Noodles (yes, I do like them) are $0.29 each at Econo, and are in the 6 for $3.50 range at Fesival/Pat's. The one thing that Festival/Pat's has that's a good price is milk, when on sale (which is quite often), it's cheaper than both Econo and Wally World.

    That would be good. If its just the Hoton store I will get ahold of the Manager and voice my opinion.



    I will do some shopping at Pats, but still will be forced to go to Econo unless I win the lottery.

    I posted the question on the WI forums, because there are stores in WI that are owned by the same company that owns the U.P. stores. We'll get it figured out if it's store policy, corporate, or some regional policy

    I emailed Econo in Houghton and here is the response I got.

    "Ryan, I apologize about the sign that you read. We had a conversation about
    what happened downtown earlier this month and I did not realize that a sign
    had been posted. It has been taking down. Again I apologize for the
    confusion on our end.

    No idea what happened downtown? I never heard anything about it...


    But I'm glad the sign has supposedly been removed.

    Good stuff!

    I haven't heard anything. I'll swing by on my way home and see if it really is down. If I don't post an update tonight, I will in the morning.

    Glad the sign is down. The incident downtown he is refering to is a AK open carrier carrying and scaring folks. I know the gentlemen who was doing it, and I do not believe he is a member or contributer here.

    Anyone up for a meet n greet up here, haven't had anything recently. Now that the weathers tamed down, perhaps a public picnic would be nice.

    We must live in the U.P. when someone carrying a rifle down town doesn't even make the news.

    Haven't been that way in a long time, and don't recall anyone around the forums from that area either, so no promises. I will say that despite our rural area, theofficers around here, even without prompting, are aware it is legal, even if they haven't memorized all the quirks involved yet. I would anticipate Iron Mountain to be of similar fashion.
