In this day and age, it truly is stunning what offends people. It’s gotten to the point where even saluting our troops and first responders has become offensive. Well, one Ohio bakery isn’t taking it anymore.
The store is Schuler’s in Springfield, Ohio and he was surprised that his sign garnered so much attention. It all hit him when he saw a woman on Facebook share the photo telling people not to shop there.
When asked to explain his rationale, owner Trent Schuler said:
“I had no idea it was going to turn out like this. I think it’s great, though, the overwhelming amount of support that people have given to just expressing your opinion…Many of us feel we are being told what we are supposed to think or what we are supposed to say.”
Here’s the “controversial” sign:
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — The phone at Schuler’s has been ringing nonstop and even more customers have been flocking to the longtime Springfield bakery.
“My dad’s family is from Indiana and we go there every year for Thanksgiving and after the sign was shared on Facebook they saw that and said why not get Schuler’s for Thanksgiving this year,” said Sydnee Gilliam.
Schuler’s bakery owner Trent Schuler can’t believe all the attention his sign has received.
“I had no idea it was going to turn out like this. I think it’s great, though, the overwhelming amount of support that people have given to just expressing your opinion,” Schuler said.
