Kroger Stands Up—Again

posted on April 16, 2015

Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action might have been out-enthused by NRA members in Nashville last week—at the rate of roughly 520-to-1—but she certainly seems determined. In the wake of Kroger’s polite refusal to ban firearms carry in their stores, Watts has now made her group’s boycott of the grocery giant “official.”

Two inconvenient details make any celebration premature. First, Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman once again took the high road and deferred to local and state statutes as the authority on permissible carry modes. Second, and understandably closer to a chief financial officer’s heart, may be the fact that Kroger’s profit jumped 21 percent after the company’s first repudiation of a threatened boycott last year.

Just sayin’: Shop at Kroger (and Harris Teeter or Fred Meyer).
