Family Fare no OC?
« on: September 13, 2015, 05:29:22 PM »
I was at the Family Fare near my house here in Grand Rapids and was told by the manager today that they do not allow open carry unless by a uniformed officer. I've OCed there all the time with no issues. Anyone else run into that at a Family Fare??

No. This just happened today. Just wondering if it was a no OC place the whole time and I just never knew.

Same here in Kentwood. Never a problem.

That sounds like the OP's experience (until last weekend).

Should OP's initial query be directed to the corporate CEO, or should he try to find out if there's a specific person in charge of the Family Fare stores in Michigan?

Family Fare apparently does have a no firearms policy per their own documents.

https://www.spartannash.com/sites/default/files/attachments/SpartanNash%20Code%20of%20Conduct.pdf


"Consistent with this commitment to workplace
safety, SpartanNash will not tolerate acts or threats
of violence, intimidation, harassment or coercion
in the workplace. You should report immediately to
your supervisor, Human Resources’ representative
security, or asset protection any behavior
that threatens the health and safety of people or
property, or has the potential to become violent.
Imminent threats of violence or physical harm
should always be reported first to local law
enforcement (call 911). Also, you are strictly
prohibited from bringing or carrying onto
SpartanNash property or in SpartanNash vehicles
any weapons, firearms, ammunitions, explosives
or incendiary devices. The only exception is if you
are in a security position that requires as a part of
your job you carry a weapon or firearm. If you are
in a State that permits firearms to be stored in a
personal vechicle in a company parking lot, you
may do so, provided that you are properly licensed
or permitted to do so, the gun is safely stored
out of sight and the vechicle is locked. "

The document above would appear to  be an employee policy, which, at most businesses, bears no resemblance to customer policy.

Agree, and I also have never had an issue at Family Fare.

recurveman, could you tell us the Family Fare Location that you visited?  I have OC'd at the Family Fare at Leonard and Fuller without problems.  It was a overall good experience ... several folks asked about OC, CPL's, and gun rights in general.  It gave me a chance to discuss 2A rights.

This was the Family Fare on Collendale and Lake Michigan
