Spencer Gifts: Need We Say More?
Spencer Gifts in malls across the country sell more than gag gifts. Their stores are full of adult games and toys, soft porn to pornographic material, crude greeting cards, and items with foul language on them in plain view. Currently, the huge window displays for Spencer Gifts are pornographic and satanic. It is scary to know that they are pulling in tons of teens, and not by selling mood rings and lava lamps. The store has a dark atmosphere, and influencing teens negatively.
The main poster is of a woman wearing a G-string while falling out of her corset. The second poster is almost as revealing and has a male with satanic characteristics gazing upon her. This display is degrading to women, harmful to young impressionable women, and dangerous to boys and men alike by encouraging temptation.
It doesn't do much good to complain to store managers. They say there is nothing they can do about it because the home office dictates what is in their storefront windows and on their shelves.
- Please send an email letter to Spencer's corporate office explaining that because of their storefront window displays, your family will no longer visit the mall. Let them know that you plan to contact your local mall with the same message. Spencer Gifts should also put in place a carding system and have an employee card customers, not before they make a purchase, but before entering the store to ensure they are at least 18.
- Take it one step further and call your local mall and urge them to enforce decent storefronts and window displays since you are sure they attempt to uphold a family-friendly environment or your family will have no choice but to shop elsewhere. Also, suggest that they require stores that sell adult material to implement a strict carding system before any customers enter the store. If this is too much to ask, then this type of store shouldn't be in a mall where families frequently visit, but instead in a free standing building so families with children can avoid it entirely or parents of teens will not have to worry where their child is shopping during a mall visit.
