Sears Remembrance Day Sale - Tuesday Nov 11 -*Outrage inspired update*

Sears Remembrance Day Sale - Tuesday November 11

50% off men's and women's sleepwear robes and loungewear
40% off men's and women's outerwear
40% off men's underwear and socks
50% men's sweaters
extra 10% sale priced bed and bath products

EDIT START:
I have been PM'd by a CBC radio reporter in Montreal. She has requested feedback regarding this sale. Her message reads as follows:

"I'm a reporter with CBC radio in Montreal and would be interested in speaking to you or someone else in this forum about the Sears remembrance day sale.

I am hoping to get some interviews done today (Nov 10th) as soon as possible. I've already made calls to Sears about this.

You can message me back with your phone number at this e-mail.

Thanks! "


Anyone wishing to express an opinion regarding the sale please contact the email above.

I'm surprized the ad doesn't have this in it.... if you are going for crass sales, might as well go all the way.

IN Electronics dept the Salesmen crow
Between the deals row on row,
That markdown our prices; and in the sky
The consumers, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the pricing guns below...

Shame Sears. Show some respect to those who "really" fought for our freedom.

Exactly how will I be honouring anyone that deserves it by shopping at Sears ?

Sears, this is probably a low point in your history .

Some people would like Remembrance Day to be a National Holiday.
If that were the case, how many school children would go to their local cenataph to see the laying of wreaths?
How many would be in their gymnasiums
listening to war veterans describing their harrowing ordeals?
The answer is none.

Making it a public holiday would decrease awareness, not increase it.

And yes, I agree, the sale at Sears is exceptionally inappropriate.

The children could go with their parents, which would be even better than going with a teacher. Parents, in most cases, are better for kids than teachers.

I agree, but when its done in school, attendance is not an option.

I think most would get their history from COD4 on their console. :cry:
