IS CUB FOODS STARTING A NEW TREND FOR GROCERY STORES IN MN? 

Cub Foods is changing some of their policies, which include requesting shoppers to no longer openly carry guns in store even if they have a permit. I've never even noticed a person carrying a gun in a grocery store; so this was sort of surprising to me.

CUSTOMERS REQUESTS

Apparently the reason they are taking these precautions is because they are listening to the concerns of their customers following "recent tragic events" in America; and considering Cub Foods has 100 locations in Minnesota, some people may take notice.

OTHER CHANGES 

Not only are they asking folks to not openly carry guns, they are changing a few other things as well. They also discontinued the sales of E-cigarettes due to recent serious lung injuries as a result of E-cig use.

WILL OTHER STORES JOIN IN?

Cub Foods' new owner also announced that they intend to sell Cub Foods early next year. Lots of changes for Cub Foods. Do you think other grocery chains will follow suit? Should they? Is safety a concern for you where you shop? I'd love to here from you. Send your thoughts to Kelly@minnesotasnewcountry.com.
