    While waiting for my annual Dr.visit in MKE my cell rings and it's who else but Econo foods corporate ! I was told the signs have been removed from the Clintonville stores and all the store in WI were told NOT TO POST. The signs were apparently sent to the individual stores by the American Grocers Association and were told by them that all business's in WI must be posted or will be posted he wasn't sure what he was told by the manager in Clintonville.I told him of the NO Guns = No Business Cards and he said please no ! we don't need bad publicity business is tight enough. He said thanks for bringing it to his attention and he was going to call a few others who had emailed him.
    I will be sending him a copy of Act 35 shortly as he is in MI.

    It sounds like Econo Foods is in bad shape. According to Wikepedia,
    All 5 Econofoods stores in Cedar Rapids, Iowa have closed. This in addition to stores in Charles City, Clinton, Cresco, Fort Madison, Iowa City, Manchester, Marshalltown, Oskaloosa, Dubuque, Waterloo, and Cedar Falls. The store in Fairfield, Iowa has been closed as well and the building was torn down in the summer of 2009 to be replaced with a new 75,000-square-foot (7,000 m2) Hy-Vee. Also, Stores in Rochester, Winona, Minnesota; Freeport, Galesburg and Monmouth, Illinois; Peru, Illinois; Cheyenne, Wyoming, Chilton, Wisconsin and one store in Hudson, Wisconsin have been closed. The store in Ottumwa, Iowa and Muscatine has been rebranded as a Wholesale Food Outlet, another Nash Finch chain. Additional stores in Muscatine have been closed.
    They can't afford to lose any more business....

    I am very happy to hear of this outcome. Maybe our emails helped sway their collective decision.

    The Piggly Wiggly in Oconto Falls is posted also. The sign was from the AGA.

    I believe we had a communication from Piggly Corporate telling their members to NOT post.

    On Point Question....???

    Ok, now I am wondering if I (we) enter a grocery store that is posted how do we know if it is actual store policy or just them posting based on...

    The stores were given the signs by the American Grocers Assoc. and were told by THEM they had to post them as well as all businesses in WI.
    Is there any AGA markings on the signs or would it be pertinent to go to the manager and ask the question..." Is the posting actual store (corporate) policy of just "instuctions" from whatever organization supplied the signs. This might open a door of opportunity to discuss with the manager the reality and consiquences of posting the sign ... ???

    Thoughts..??

    Who is the American Grocers Association "AGA"? A web search doesn't show any such organization. The anti 2nd Admendment and right to self defense message is disturbing. Does Blain's Farm and Fleet sell groceries?
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    I was also searching futilely for the organization. If someone would post a picture of the sign maybe we could clear this up, because that association is a bit overactive on the anti activity front to suit me.
