    Walgreens (Riverdale Rd.)

    Hey everyone! Just saw I missed the OC meet. UGH! Next time...

    Anyway, had yet another incident with my OC. *Sigh* Been going to the Walgreens at 255 E 36th St. South Ogden (Just off Riverdale Rd.) for a couple years with absolutely no previous problems. Actually have had many, many positive interactions with employees and other customers alike.

    Went in yesterday and an employee approached me and my friend and, very rudely and loudly, said my "weapon was making the people in the pharmacy nervous". Ok? I asked her if she could lower her voice because, well, last thing I want is for panic to ensue. This was met with more aggression and her getting more loud. I'm laughing and sobbing in my head--do people really think it's ok to go up to random people who are carrying a weapon and start yelling at them?

    "Are you asking me to leave?" "Yes." K! Leave my shopping right there, walk up to the front employee and asked if I could speak to a manager. He called for the same woman who just yelled at me. "NO! Wait, wait. I need someone higher up than her." "She's the owner." Ugh. "K, I need district or corporate."

    I've eMailed district asking what the policy is. I've read on several different forums that Walgreens' policy is to follow local laws (We all know how well that works for the frickin' Wal-Mart on Riverdale Rd.!).

    So, be aware that Julie up at the Walgreens on Riverdale Rd. is anti-OC. In my experience previous, the assistant manager and most--if not all--of the other employees are neutral/pro/carry themselves but, that could be changed if Julie threw a fit to the other employees.

    Hope everyone is doing well and, so incredibly sorry I missed the OC meet!

    Ah, all new staff since I was here last?

    do people really think it's ok to go up to random people who are carrying a weapon and start yelling at them?
    She obviously didn't believe you were a threat, or she wouldn't have antagonized you.
    Wonder how much louder & frothier she would have gotten if you'd pointed that out?

    MKEgal, I had no idea that you visited South Ogden UTAH and were at the Walmart there. Next time you are in Utah, look me up and if you do not already have one, I will give you the course for a Utah "permission slip" (Utah Concealed Firearm Permit).

    Sorry I wasn't very clear back there. I was thinking of something the OP 'should' have said.
    No, to the best of my knowledge I haven't been to Utah yet, though I do have one of their permission slips.
    But thank you for the offer, & I think I'd like to meet you sometime.

    Generally about once a month at different times and places... depending on who sets it up. I believe the next one is on june 1st. There is quite a bit more chatter about these things on the Utah concealed carry forum (OC friendly forum).
