"Christmas Shop" Sets Wal-Mart Atop the Nice List

Wal Mart Christmas ShopWal-Mart continues to lead among retailers Where’s Christmas?supporters will be spending their Christmas dollars with.  You’re greeted online with a Christmas ad, and three links to their “Christmas Shop”.

“Christmas” is prominently and explicitly displayed throughout their website and their advertising.  It’s clear that Wal-Mart has abandoned their politically correct ways of Christmas 2005 when they joined the stampeding heard of Grinches by instructing their associates not to utter offensive words such as “Merry Christmas” to customers.

As reported in 2006:

“We, quite frankly, have learned a lesson from last year,” Wal-Mart spokesman Linda Blakley told USA Today in a separate report.  “We’re not afraid to use the term ‘Merry Christmas.’  We’ll use it early, and we’ll use it often.”

To support its Christmas deals, the report said Wal-Mart will launch TV ads next week that trumpet “Christmas.”  It’s changing the name of its seasonal decorations department to “The Christmas Shop” from “The Holiday Shop.”

Moreover, Wal-Mart stores will play Christmas carols throughout the holiday period and about 60 percent more merchandise will be labeled as “Christmas” rather than “holiday” items, the paper said.

Support Wal-Mart and other retailers that have returned to their senses to celebrate the holiday which keeps them profitable.  Stay tuned to Where’s Christmas? for further reviews on which retailers are naughty and which are nice.  (Here’s a hint: Best Buy…Microcenter…not so nice).
