Scrooge Alert: Boycott Radio Shack this Christmas
November 25, 2013
AFA is calling for a limited one-month boycott of Radio Shack over the company's censorship of the word "Christmas."
For years, Radio Shack has refused to use the word Christmas on its website, in television commercials, newspaper ads and in-store promotions, despite tens of thousands of consumer requests to recognize Christmas and in spite of repeated requests from AFA to do the same.
Sign the Boycott Radio Shack Pledge.
Want proof? Go to www.radioshack.com and type "Christmas" in the search bar. As of today, the website brings up zero results.
At Radio Shack, you'll find "holiday" deals, "holiday" kickoff, "holiday" cash and a "holiday" gift guide, but you won't find "Christmas" anywhere.
Radio Shack is censoring the word Christmas, pure and simple. Yet the company wants all the people who celebrate Christmas to do their shopping at its stores.
Until Radio Shack proves it recognizes Christmas by using it in their newspaper, radio and television advertising or in-store signage, the boycott will be promoted throughout this Christmas season.
AFA has successfully influenced almost all of the nation's largest retailers to embrace the use of Christmas in their advertising. But at Radio Shack, it's "Bah, Humbug!"
Sign the Boycott Radio Shack Pledge. AFA will regularly update Radio Shack on how many people have signed the pledge.
Follow up with a phone call. Call the corporate office at 817-415-3011, option 0, and let them know you are serious about taking your business elsewhere.
Facebook Users: Leave a comment on Radio Shack's Facebook page for an immediate impact that will get their attention.
We recommend you call your local store manager and politely let him know you won't be shopping his store. Ask him to pass your comments along to the corporate office.
