I am making a trip up to Anchorage this weekend (I live on the Kenai Peninsula) mostly for shopping, and I was wondering if some/most/all of the "big box" stores and restaurants tend to be gun friendly or unfriendly (as far as letting you carry concealed inside their stores). Does anyone have a list of stores or know about them?
I'm most likely going to REI, Lowes, and a bunch of stores in the Dimond area, but any information is appreciated. If there's already a thread about this, please just point it out to me - I did a quick search and didn't find anything.
Are there other restrictions carrying concealed other than establishments that post that it is not allowed?
