The American Family Association (AFA) released its annual “Naughty-or-Nice Retailer List,” which tells consumers how companies plan to market their products.
11 major companies made the “naughty” list, which means products can be marketed by using the term “Christmas” sparingly in a single or unique product description, but as a company, does not recognize it.
If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word “Christmas,” then AFA considers the company as censoring “Christmas.” The list does not local or regional companies, but only nationally-recognized companies. This list also only reflects a company’s “Christmas” advertising and does not take into account other corporate policies AFA may not agree with.
The following 14 stores also aren’t considered “Christmas-friendly” by AFA because they refer to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not in others:
1. Best Buy
3. CVS Pharmacy
5. Whole Foods
6. Bath & Body Works
7. Radio Shack
8. True Vallue
9. Academy Sports + Outdoors
Here are nationally-recognized stores that made AFA’s “Nice” list, meaning they promote and celebrate Christmas on an exceptional basis:
