San Antonio Mattress Store’s “Twin Tower Sale” is Offending People
Profiting from a national tragedy. It's a slippery slope. I guess 15 years is still "Too Soon".
If you think that the best way to remember a tragedy is by saving money, you're wrong.
Miracle Mattress in San Antonio is taking a lot of heat for their commercial advertising a special sale in honor of 9/11. It's the Twin Mattress Sale. Everything is at a twin price.
They might have been better off if they advertised that a portion of the profits would be donated to a charity, but they didn't.
They added a slight gag at the end of the commercial when all the twin mattress towers fall down. And, wait, there's more. One of the people then says, "We'll never forget".
They've since posted an apology on their Facebook page. Don't know if it will help.
