I needed some new jeans so I went to a nearby outlet center to avoid going to mall. After some comparison shopping in different outlets I came to a Levi's outlet. Since Levi's has expressed that does not want guns in its stores I did not go in. I did go to the door and wave for sales person. A young man came to the door and asked how he could help. I asked him where else I could find Levi jeans in the outlet. He was a bit surprised at the question and answered that the best option was in the store. I told him I could not come in because Levi's has expressed that it did not want guns in its stores, and that I was carrying a gun. He waved for another person who turned out to be the manager. The young man related our brief conversation. The manager said I could come in to shop because Levi's corporate office had only expressed a preference that shoppers not bring in guns but that it was the shoppers option. I went in but after looking I bought nothing. I actually had no intention of buying because Levi's are so much more expensive than other brands. I just wanted to be told I could not enter so I could protest. That did not go as planned. I did tell the manager upon leaving that the Levi's announcement seemed binding and that was going to cost them business, and if not mandatory it was still going to cost them business because people like me did not know it was optional. I also said the pseudo policy was silly. The manager agreed.
