    GRNC Update 05-10-10:
    GRNC Gets Harris Teeter to Pull 'No Guns' Signs

    Over the weekend, numerous reports came into GRNC that Harris Teeter supermarkets across the state were posting against firearms, including those carried by lawful concealed handgun permit-holders.

    Happily, a single phone call by GRNC president Paul Valone to Harris Teeter Communications Director Jennifer Townsend seems to have resolved the problem, as Ms. Townsend assures us signs will be removed immediately.

    GRNC 'DON'T BUY LIST'

    Recall that in 1995, after GRNC passed North Carolina's concealed handgun law, then-Governor Hunt's "Crime Commission" printed up 3,000 "no firearms" signs and began encouraging merchants to post.

    Anticipating the problem, we created the "GRNC Don't Buy List" through which gun rights supporters reported posted merchants, which were contacted and informed that their business would be transmitted to tens of thousands of gun owners via gun shows, gun shops, concealed handgun classes, and the Internet.

    As a result, hundreds of stores removed signs -- including major chains such as Lowes Home Improvement Centers, Wilco Convenience stores and others -- breaking the trend toward posting. Given the success of the project, GRNC wrapped it up in the late 90s to focus on gun legislation.

    THANK HARRIS TEETER

    When the realities of the Don't Buy project were explained to Harris Teeter executives on Monday morning, they wasted little time, calling back two hours later to inform GRNC that signs would be removed. As it turns out, the explanation for this situation was a misinterpretation of the law at the corporate level. We have heard from members that their local store managers have reported being contacted by the corporate office to remove the signs.

    As a North Carolina company with 132 of its 189 supermarkets in this state, let's all offer a big "thank you" for being a responsible corporate citizen and supporting the ability of its customers to protect themselves.

    Please offer your thanks to: customerrelations@harristeeter.com

    Did you talk to the manager? What did he have to say?

    No, I'm not talking to ANYONE face-to-face for the next few days. I've decided to quit smoking.

    My interpersonal communication skills are a little edgy right now...

    But I should be back to my normal, perky, polite, happy self by the weekend.

    And I'm meeting you for lunch in a couple days

    I kid, I kid, haha.

    I have another friend who went through the same stuff you are going through. Best I can say is good luck! The first 3 days are the hardest, but once you get through those days, then its easier (so I've heard - I don't smoke).

    I'll see if I can't swing by the HT on firetower road, and talk to a manager about it today.

    Alright, went to the HT on firetower road. Spoke with the manager, and he basically said that he hasn't received word to take the sign down. He went on the regular spiel about how he has guns, etc etc. Also mentioned that (Dreamer, I assume) came by and gave him a "No guns, no $$" card.

    I told him that corporate just reversed their policy on the signs, and that they were to come down on the 10th of May. He said he didn't hear of anything about that, but as soon as he does, he'll take the sign down.

    I recorded the entire conversation (7 mins and change), but it's very quiet. If you turn the audio up all the way, you can hear it. You can download the file here:

    It's a .m4a file, but should play in just about any player on the computer.

    It was my first time, be gentle :?
