Michigan-based grocer Meijer is joining other big name retailers in asking customers not to open-carry guns in their stores.

Meijer and ALDI join fellow retailers Walmart, Kroger, and Walgreens - which announced similar policies. Kroger stopped selling guns at their Fred Meyer stores previous year.

"The safety of our customers and team members is our top priority, so we respectfully request that our customers do not open carry firearms at Meijer", the grocery chain posted Monday on Twitter.

Last week, Kroger and Walmart requested customers to not openly carry firearms into its stores.

This follows several mass shootings across the country including the El Paso shooting where 22 people were killed and 24 people were injured.
