LANGHORNE, Pa. — A Pennsylvania-based grocery store chain is banning egg sales to minors during the week leading up to Halloween.

Redner’s Markets in Langhorne, Pa., posted a sign saying that minors couldn’t buy eggs between Oct. 24 and Nov. 1, according to WPVI.

The chain is hoping their ban on eggs will take the “trick” out of trick-or-treating this year.

According to the owners, the practice is meant to help prevent vandals from throwing raw eggs at homes, businesses, vehicles and people, because they can do “significant damage.”

The chain operates stores in Delaware, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Many customers told WPVI that they didn’t know about the policy but said it makes sense.

Some, however, said they don’t think the policy will stop delinquent behavior.
