Walmart in Harriman Pandering to the Interests of the Ultra-Orthodox
The above pictures were sent to us with the following comment:
These were taken at the Walmart in Harriman, NY, which is a short distance from Kiryas Joel. The Hasidim felt that the Danskin display was immodest, so they had the store cover the women up. They used laminated paper. Apparently a few of the sheets fell off, or they didn’t have enough to start with. These were taken on 5/27/16.
We invite you to come to your own conclusions or comments regarding both the pictures and the comments. The people at Walmart had no comments.
We find it rather disturbing that a public company, owned by one of the wealthiest families in the country, could pander to the interests of a small community, except perhaps if that community who can be seen frequenting that store, threatened to boycott.
Where will they have enough influence to yield such a result next, Woodbury Commons?
