Per the Marine Corp Exchange’s request, we have removed their 2011 Black Friday ad from our collection.
One of the ways we’ve endeavored to show our respect for the military was to create a list of stores that offer military discounts in recognition of military families who often struggle to make ends meet, and we definitely felt that giving greater visibility to the MCX Black Friday ad was well aligned with that. That same respect for the MCX and the Marine Corp now requires that we comply with their wishes, no questions asked.
It’s always a sad day for us when we make the decision to pull a Black Friday ad, especially when it’s posted with intention of getting the word out about and boosting the visibility of the excellent work that organizations like Marine Corp Exchange do for military families. However, we will continue to search for ways we can show our appreciation.
We wish our active duty servicemen and servicewomen, veterans, reservists and their families a happy Thanksgiving and joyful holiday season.
