Arizona Company Sees Benefits of 'Buycott'Topics: Political News and commentaries
As the firestorm around Arizona's tough new immigration law (SB 1070) picks up speed, one Arizona company called Arizona Sun is not only weathering the storm but is experiencing an entirely different reaction - a "BUYcott."
[...] Bob Wallace runs the million-dollar skin care and hair care product business out of Scottsdale. The company supplies to thousands of locations across the United States.Here's a video on the story:
He was worried about a backlash, but Wallace says something odd is happening. While some are emailing that they will boycott Arizona Sun products just because of the Arizona connection -- others are buying products just to support the company.
One Maryland woman is calling it a 'buycott.'
"The majority of people calling and writing in are ordering products that have never heard of us before and have gone out of their way to purchase an Arizona Sun product," he says.
Happy for the business, Wallace keeps plugging along, hoping Arizona Sun can take the heat of the latest controversy.
"Arizona Sun is not about politics, it's not about ethnicity. Arizona Sun is about helping people stay out of the sun and be protected by the sun and enjoy the sun, while they're here on vacation or other places in the United States."
Back on April 30th we posted on Preserving American Liberty's announced that Fred and Jeri Thompson, Liz Cheney and J.C. Watts would be joining Sarah Palin at the Independence Events Center, Saturday, May 1, 2010 for the Winning Back America Conference at which a National Arizona BUYcott would be announced (Nice Deb attended and has a post on the event here). Let's hope that the conference event helps kickoff a lot of buycott activity that benefit other Arizona companies, as well.
Meanwhile, you can start participating in the Arizona Buycott by checking out the Arizona Sun's website and buying some of their awesome skin care products.
