Walgreens on Thursday joined a growing number of U.S. retailers who requested customers refrain from the open carry of firearms in its stores.

A company statement read "We are joining other retailers in asking our customers to no longer openly carry firearms into our stores other than authorized law enforcement officials."

Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (WBA) is the parent of Walgreens.

Earlier this week, Kroger Co. (KR) said it was asking customers to no longer openly carry firearms in its stores.

On Wednesday, Walmart Inc. (WMT) made a similar request of its customers and announced it would no longer sell ammunition for assault-style weapons.
