TJXlack of recognition of the holiday of hanukkah

L Nov 25, 2017 Review updated:

To Whom it may concern:
Today, Saturday November 25, 2017 I went to the Home Goods Store in Swampscott, MA, 01907. My main purpose in going was to look for some Hanukkah decorations, menorah's etc. I was EXTREMELY disappointed and hurt by the fact that their was a incredibly tiny section set aside for Hanukkah. I had to ask someone where it was. My experience was exactly the same at the Marshalls in Swampscott. I actually feel discriminated by such an insignificant concern for a Jewish holiday. There were Christmas items galore but Hanukkah was "put in the back of the bus." During a time in our country's history where violence and discrimination are so prevalent, it is unfortunate the example that the TJX stores are modeling by NOT giving a major segment of people who live in this area recognition. Sincerely, Lois Longin

    Hanukkah is a minor Jewish holiday. Stores tend to put it close to the front to compete with Christmas. The store management might not realize that Jews shop there and want decorations, gelt, candles, menorahs, etc
