Winners of the CASPIAN "Triple Blue Ribbon of Privacy "

A representative from each store below has promised us that their store will never implement a shopper registration and monitoring program. If one of these stores is in your area, please support it with your shopping dollars and take the time to personally thank the manager for respecting your privacy.

I would encourage everyone to write a letter or e-mail to these markets (even if they are out of your shopping area) as a gesture of support and encouragement. We could use more stores with this kind of integrity.

And the list is growing!
