2 NY-based markets reject Rolling Stone cover

Posted: Updated:

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- 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 on its cover, as well as a story examining how he became involved in radical Islam.

National retail chains such as CVS and Walgreens announced earlier this week that they wouldn't carry the issue, as did some regional store chains in New England.

Wegmans has 81 stores in New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland. Tops has 159 stores in New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.
