The new WF in the Austin domain has a noncompliant sign. If they are springing up because of the OC Chipolte display - then those folks :mad5

And presumably a 30.06 sign doesn't even prohibit open carry unless accompanied by some other form of notice for 30.05.

read the label. Good luck.

It appears that the store in the Domain has taken down all its TABC signs. That is NOT allowed under TABC regs, so I will be filing a complaint on Monday.

Even if they put up a 30.06, they must continue to display a blue sign.

Feel free to check and file complaints accordingly.

That's a bummer, I was really looking forward to shopping there.

I wonder if they realize that 30.06 only effects licensed people?

Oh, we're experts at label reading and interpreting. For instance, if they say "natural flavors" and do not say from what, it's corn. Did you know the FDA has seen fit to allow petroleum in your foods?

My youngest is the canary in the coal mine and has identified a lot of allergies that affect all of us, though not as severely or acutely as they do her. Gluten, dairy, eggs, sulfates, sulfites, petroleum and assorted others. A lot of spices and ALL packaged/frozen foods are out. We get grass fed beef and only fresh fruits and vegetables. It's not just what's in foods but how they are packaged and processed. Our Tom Thumb and Kroger are getting better but unless we want to hit like twenty stores to get "safe" groceries, places like Whole Foods are the answer.

FWIW, this is where my argument about "public" access and private property rights collide. They do not do anything to actually keep guns from coming in and let the "unwashed" public unfettered access but somehow, they make me either a criminal or defenseless if I have to enter. For those who rapidly respond, "Go somewhere else." I'm all ears. I already drive an hour each way for our meat, and grocery trips take 2-3 hours because of all the stops. I'm sorry, if you are not going to put up metal detectors and post security but let the public have unqualified access, you shouldn't be able to ban the means for me to legally protect myself.

As open carry of a long gun is not under subchapter h chapter 411 I would say it does not. But under 30.05 any other no gun sign would. Just my two cents.

I doubt it. If they had really done their research, they would be posting valid signs.

Private Property Rights are to be respected. I also think a place that boldly invites people in to browse and purchase items or service have given up some of their private ptoperty rights. They have given up their right to privacy. They have given up their right to invite selected people into their "business" property. There is a large difference between Prinate Property and Prinate Business Property that is open to the invited public.
To say that I cannot carry a firearm into a business that I, as part of the public, have been invited into to shop or for service is wrong. They would have the full right to dictate what I wear to their domicile and if I don't like it I don't need to attend. To dictate how I am to dress or what I can carry as part of my wardrobe, especially when it is an unalienable right is wrong.
Rant over.

We're getting great deals at Amazon these days, everything from toilet tissue to groceries. Food delivered to our door at lower cost than what we can get in the stores, including shipping. I like Whole Foods but I'm done with them now. I don't care if every store is posted or not....if I encounter a chain that has any of it's outlets posted they're not getting my money.

Taking your business elsewhere is your right. I say, in order to get the point across, tell the management why you are not doing business with them. This can be done in a calm, and polite manner without creating a scene, something the OC folks seem to forget.
