15 weeks after Walmart agreed to remove Nazi tshirts from its shelves, they’re still there.
We called 20 of the 25 stores where readers photographed the Nazi shirts. Five of the stores still had the shirts.
Those Walmarts are in Marrieta GA, Naperville, IL, Durham, NC, Ledgewood, NJ, and Cordova, TN.
Despite a letter from Congress and Walmart’s firm vow to resolve the issue, the retailer evidently continues to have difficulty communicating policy from upper management to store managers to floor personnel.
Walmart PR people, here’s what you do.
1) Get a big list out with every single Walmart’s phone number.
2) Call up and ask for the Men’s department. Identify the shirt and ask if you can get it in a large.
3) If the shirt is still there, speak to the manager and tell him to remove the shirt.
4) Wait a week.
5) Repeat steps 1-4 as many times as necessary.
It’s easy. You could have some interns do it, really. Give it a shot. — BEN POPKEN
