This comes on the heels of national chains like CVS and Walgreens already announcing that they won’t sell the terrorist-glorifying magazine.

Via the Washington Post:

Two western New York-based supermarket chains are the latest retailers refusing to sell an upcoming issue of “Rolling Stone” magazine featuring the Boston Marathon bombing suspect on its cover.

Local media outlets report that Rochester-based Wegmans Food Markets and Williamsville-based Tops Friendly Markets don’t plan to carry the Aug. 1 issue that features a self-taken photo of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) on its cover, as well as a story examining how he became involved in radical Islam.

The total number of these supermarkets that won’t be selling the controversial issue is about 240, across multiple states in the northeast.
