I like the WinCo in Arlington. We don't shop there enough, will have to start stopping there instead of passing by on the way to Walmart.

The prices seem about the same as Kroger's, and every employee I have ever spoken with there was really friendly and helpful. That goes a long way with me these days.

HEB is much more better.


Yeah, but some are mad at HEB because they don't allow open carry.

It's hard to find someone or some place where their beliefs align 100% with someone. Drawing hard lines and boycotting can become quite inconvenient.

I guess their thought process is guns don't kill people, gun periodicals kill people :rules:

No more shopping at Kroger for me.

True. I'm good with concealed carry when I shop at HEB. They still carry reading magazines that feature black rifles too.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

The concept of "lesser of two evils" comes into play here. I actually prefer HEB as does my wife. I shifted all grocery shopping to Kroger after HEB's stated policy of discouraging OC. But now it looks like we are moving back to HEB. If HEB does something stupid, then I will reconsider again.

Will be interesting to see if they follow up by posting .06 and .07 signs at stores in Texas.

Is this the Kroger the more overzealous OC fans were going to exclusively buy their groceries from and boycott HEB, because HEB denied OC, but were fine with CC?

Surely you jest...

I went to a Kroger this morning to pick up prescription and check the Magazine stand and saw that they still had all the gun magazines still displayed. Not sure who wrote the article but it does not apply to the Kroger close to me. I know they do not sell pornography but the gun, car, sports and even the gossip magazines were there. People, learn to respond and not react.

twomillenium,

Are you saying Kroger's gun magazine censorship (in effect) is fake news?

I really hope (if this is in fact the case) you're correct, but I saw, it may have been on a recent Tucker Carlson show, that in fact Kroger did make this de facto censorship announcement regarding gun magazines.

Of course, maybe in certain Kroger grocery stores, the local grocery store managers aren't complying with top managements edict...

Just wondering, how many of you bought such magazines at Kroger before this policy was in place?

A long time ago when I was in the retail business, magazine racks were managed by 3rd party magazine distributors. If this is still the case it's possible that the distributor has not been to all of the locations to refresh the racks and remove the horrible assault magazines.

I wonder how they'll handle it when for the magazine that only puts an AR-15 on its cover once or twice a year. Progressive socialist morons.

Never. My assault...er, gun magazines are delivered by the postal service for less than a quarter of the retail cost in stores. Just renewed my subscription to Guns and Ammo - 2 years for $15.00, about .63 per issue. Before I had a subscription I bought one issue at retail of $4.99.
