Merry Christmas 2

While you go out this Christmas season, take notice of the companies who are selling “Holiday” presents.  Personally, I never shop for Holiday, I shop for Christmas.  Therefore, I prefer going to a store selling Christmas gifts than a store selling “Holiday” presents.  Each year companies bounce back and forth except this year we are seeing more repeats than normal.  The 10 companies who are banning Christmas entirely this year are as follows:

  • Office Depot
  • Office Max
  • Staples
  • Dollar Store
  • Maurice’s
  • Super Value
  • Victoria’s Secret
  • Petsmart
  • Foot Locker
  • Limited Brands

I firmly believe in voting with my wallet.    If I don’t like the policy of your store, I don’t buy.  I do not advocate that you refrain from shopping at these stores.  That’s a decision that everyone must make by themselves.  A few years back, Target banned the Salvation Army Santas and now just a few years later, they are one of the top companies and their employees will say Merry Christmas to you and advertising on TV and in their stores prominently feature Christmas.  Why do you suppose they changed course?
