Currently, between 4 and 5 volunteers are picketing outside Golden Farm each day, from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.

Barut said the number of picketers on any given day is small by design, since the goal of the boycott is more to deter people from entering the store, not raise a ruckus.

"It's not like just a picket where people are marching in a circle," she said. "It's an active boycott."

Another rally will be held outside the store on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 12 p.m.
