ALDI is the latest retailer asking customers not to openly carry firearms in their stores.

"The safety of our customers and team members is our top priority, so we respectfully request that our customers do not open carry firearms at Meijer".

It's not clear if Meijer is making any changes to sales of ammunition and firearms.

Also on Monday, ALDI USA asked customers to refrain from openly displaying firearms in their stores, except for authorized law enforcement personnel. Albertsons' two biggest grocery competitors, Walmart and Kroger Co., made similar requests last Tuesday, Sept. 3.

The announcement comes a week after Walmart asked customers not to open carry in their stores, and it said it would stop the sale of handguns and short-barrel rifle ammunition. Kroger stopped selling guns at their Fred Meyer stores a year ago.
