Kroger Increases Profits 21% Despite Anti-Gunner Boycott

Kroger has made their firearms policy very clear. Their stores follow the local laws, when local laws allow residents to carry firearms Kroger allows their shoppers to carry firearms.

In this case, Moms Demand Action has been trying to coerce Kroger into banning all firearms within their stores. They’ve been boycotting. They’ve been delivering petitions. They’ve been trying to pressure the grocery store chain online and in social media. Fortunately, it’s not working at all.

Instead of hurting the store’s bottom line, all those boycotts and petitions and hollering on Facebook and Twitter have actually helped elevate the Kroger brand. You see, Kroger just posted a 21% increase in 3rd quarter profits compared to the same period last year. For reference, similar grocery stores around the country saw an increase in profits of just 5.6%. According to the SuperMarket News trade magazine, this is the 44th straight quarter Kroger has posted positive earnings. It seems this chain of grocery stores is flourishing despite the anti-gunners best attempts to pressure them meeting to their demands.

The message here is clear: Moms Demand Action talks a big talk, but when companies stand tall and hold to true to logical principles, it becomes obvious that all that talk is nothing more than a big show. We hope the next business these anti-gun activists targets takes a long hard look at this case and learns from Kroger’s example.
