NBC7: Trader Joe’s Files Lawsuit to Prevent Signature Gatherers from Soliciting at Stores

Popular grocer Trader Joe’s has filed a lawsuit asking a judge to halt signature gathering for petitions in front of its stores after customers across San Diego complained of aggressive tactics by gatherers. Despite the company’s policy prohibiting such activity, stores in Mission Valley, Point Loma, Pacific Beach and Hillcrest all reported aggressive signature solicitors.
