Business: Where to take card complaints

I would like to take a moment and reply to Joanne Carrin (“Store cards coerce customers,” Letters, Nov. 13).

We have more than enough legislation in our lives. IF you REALLY want to see "store cards" become a thing of the past, deal with the stores, not politicians.

If enough people write and/or call the corporate headquarters of stores like Safeway, Rite Aid, Alberstons, and Haggen we could see "store cards" become a thing of the past. But only by dealing with the stores will we get results. Getting politicians involved merely "muddies the water," and every time the government sticks their fingers into anything, we, the consumer and taxpayer, are the ones left paying the higher costs.

If you want to complain, contact corporate headquarters. Let's leave the politicians out of this!
