    Picked up my photos and spoke with both the store manager and asst. manager at the Walgreen's near my home. Photos turned out great. The manager and asst. manager concur that it's not corporate policy that prohibits printing firearms photos. They print pretty much everything, however if it contains illegal activity (kiddie porn, animal cruelty, etc.) the customer doesn't get their photos, and they're turned over to the appropriate LE agency. The asst. mgr transferred here from NJ and said that his previous store mgr was pretty anti-gun. He said he wouldn't be surprised if the guy made up some silly store policy that they cannot print gun photos. The asst. mgr I'm familiar with says he's not "anti", though he's not exactly "pro" gun either. I'd say he falls into the "undecided" category. I kind of pressed him and said asked if he would consider himself more "pro" or "anti". He said he's all for "legal firearms ownership", though is kind of afraid of guns since being a victim of a store robber while he worked in a store in PRCA.

    The manager and asst. mgr suggested that we contact Walgreen's corporate through the 800# on the website, email or snail mail the corporate address if we ever feel that store employees are mistreating us. They've both seen senior managment transfer store managers who frequently make up "silly" store policies which go contrary to corporate policy. They also told me that as far as they know, there's no corporate policy that prohibits customers from CC or OC in the store, as long as it's in accordance with the local laws where the store is located. (The store manager transferred here from Colorado)

  3. Walgreens policy

    I e-mailed Walgreens corporate office about a thread on a gun forum where a member sent in pictures of guns for insurance purposes to have printed and the manager refused stating in was corporate policy.

    I just received an phone call from Walgreens corporate office. They said it is not policy. If you are legal to carry in your state you are welcome to do so at Walgreens. He also stated that they supported the 2nd amendment.

    I don't use Walgreens anyway, but now I know I'll never go in there.

    Why not if you know that you are welcome to carry in the stores?

  6. This thread is retarded.

    Why does someone generalize an entire chain off of one person??

    I just went into a Walgreens today. I took a broken heater back I bought nearly 2 years ago (still had receipt in hand) and asked to have it replaced. He first asked if I wanted the higher model (smart sales move) but I said I just need the small one.
    He handed me the new one and took the old one without asking any questions or looking at my receipt even!
    Unless they post GB signs I will continue to go there.

    Why you ask? Some folks have hair triggers, and react zealously at the thought of their 2nd amendent rights being violated. I personally have no issue with Walgreens. Any problems I had were taken care of by the management. It is very possible that the OP made up the story for his own personal reasons and watched the reactions of everyone. It is also possible the OP's story is true, and the one hour photo professional took it upon himself to disarm the photo's. Either way, I agree this post has out lived it's usefulness. The fact is many of our friends and neighbor's dislike firearms. Shouldn't we try to inform, and educate, instead of inflame?

  8. Why can't the NRA and/or the GOA give a straight answer to the situation?

    I just love when people register with a forum and then ***** about it's contents.

    This thread is barely 3 days old, and just yesterday confirmed that Walgreens actually supports 2A. The thread did exactly what it was supposed to do. Someone read a story about someone else's experience, relayed it here, and in the end, we have found that it is not a corporate wide policy. There will always be a few who generalize, but most have cautioned not to jump to conclusions and some have even inquired at their local Wallgreens. Now we know it's an isolated store manager. Good job to those who sought out the answers.
