    Albertsons Companies joins supermarkets in changing guns policy

    It's time we were less polite.
    Politeness is what allowed the left to run roughshod over us for generations.

    The fact that I don't shop at big retailers makes this boycott thing kinda hard. I don't shop at a single Albertsons Company store.

    That's great and for the most part I do too. However, they own other things other than grocery stores.

    Albertsons — which operates the grocery chains Vons, Pavilions and Safeway as well as its namesake grocery stores — said it’s acquiring the part of Rite Aid that isn’t being sold to Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. under a previously announced deal. Albertsons would get slightly more than half of Rite Aid’s retail locations, plus additional Rite Aid assets such as its pharmacy benefit company and its wellness/loyalty program.

    As of June 15, Albertsons Cos. operated 2,268 retail food and drug stores, including 1,739 pharmacies and 399 fuel stations, as well as 23 distribution centers, six Plated meal-kit fulfillment centers and 20 manufacturing plants. The company's store banners include Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Carrs, Sav-On, Jewel-Osco, Acme, Shaw's, Star Market, United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, Haggen and United Express.

    Most of those retailers aren't around here. And those that are I do not shop at.
