Meijer has asked that customers do not open carry firearms inside their stores. "We join a growing chorus of businesses in requesting that our customers, other than authorized law enforcement personnel, do not bring firearms into our stores".

Meijer made the announcement on Twitter on Monday, saying the open display of guns makes customers and employees feel unsafe.

A statement from a Meijer spokesperson says they have made several changes to policies regarding ammunition, which includes raising the age of purchase.

Meijer and ALDI join fellow retailers Walmart, Kroger, and Walgreens - which announced similar policies.

ALDI's is just the latest national retailer to ask customers to not carry firearms openly while shopping, a move that comes after a rash of mass shootings. Kroger stopped selling guns at their Fred Meyer stores previous year.
