I visited the Alderwood Mall on Tuesday morning and was greatly disturbed by the larger than life indecent advertising in the windows of Victoria’s Secret, Pink and Soma stores. I believe the scantily clad models were in bad taste and quite unseemly. This type of advertising goes beyond suggestive and borders on pornography.
The mall is a gathering place of multiple ages and I would be quite embarrassed to be there with family, friends or out of town guests. I find this type of advertising offensive and grossly immodest. I have shopped at two of these stores in the past and I would expect more from a shopping experience than to be confronted with this off-color advertising.
I will not be shopping those stores or any others at the mall, due to this shameless advertising, anytime soon.
I will be sharing this letter with the stores I mentioned as well as others who may have the authority to bring a more family environment back to our community.
