Macy's agrees to ‘Merry Christmas’, national Sears boycott announced

.- Macy's Department Stores has agreed to return the phase "Merry Christmas" to store signage and advertising. The Committee to Save Merry Christmas announced and lauded the retailer’s decision today.

However, the committee also announced that it is leading a national boycott against Sears Department Stores this year because the international retailer “has rejected several requests that ‘Merry Christmas’ signs be returned and posted in their stores” and to their advertising, said the committee’s press release.

"Over the past several years, Sears has systematically removed references to Merry Christmas. Inviting us to shop for Christmas gifts yet eliminating Merry Christmas is offensive to the sensibilities of millions of average Americans,” said committee chairman Manual Zamorano. "It's the height of hypocrisy for Sears to make tens of millions of dollars selling Christmas presents, yet coldly refuse to acknowledge Christmas."

The committee says Americans should urge Sears to respect "Merry Christmas" by communicating with:

Mr. Aylwin Lewis
President & CEO Sears, Roebuck and Company
3333 Beverley Road
Hoffman Estates, IL 60179
phone (847) 286-2500
fax (847) 286-7829
