With so many companies too gutless to say "Merry Christmas," it's nice to see a company step up and actually use the term. In this case, Bealls, part of the Stage Stores chain of department stores, sent out an email with the graphic seen here. While it doesn't invoke the religious aspect of Christmas, we appreciate the fact that they said the word.
If you'd like to send them a thank you for standing up for "Merry Christmas," click right here to send them an email through the Stage Stores website. We cannot confirm if other non-Bealls stores in the company chain (including Palais Royal, Peebles, Steele's, and Goody's Family Clothing, among others) also used the term in their advertising, so be sure to point out it was from a Bealls email ad.
