“I’ll let their corporate office figure out what to do with them when I return them on day 59 of a 60-day return policy,” said Cox.
It was on a shopping trip with her teenage son that Cox spotted the display of T-shirts in PacSun’s window.
“I had a conversation with the store manager,” Cox said. “She said she did refuse to put the accompanying banner up with the display because it was much worse, but that she couldn’t take down the T-shirts without talking to her corporate office, but the promo was over Wednesday anyway. She said she told them it might not go over well.”
The manager of the University Mall PacSun store told the Daily Herald that she contacted the corporate office about Cox’s concerns.
Cox has enlisted Christian groups One Million Moms and Women for Decency in her effort against PacSun. The Herald claims that Cox is being courted by national news outlets like “The Today Show” and “Newsday.”
