EUGENE, Ore. -- A Eugene convenience store is asking customers to say no to panhandlers.

Employees said the sign has been at the 7-Eleven on West 6th Avenue for two weeks now. This follows several incidents in which customers have been harassed, and fights have broken out in the parking lot.

The sign says: "For your safety and that of the neighboring community we kindly ask that you say no to panhandlers."

We reached out to the store manager to learn more about why they decided to put the sign out but haven't heard back.
