Since we are away from home I have lost touch with lots of stuff. Last night I got to thinking about the fate of Free Market Warrior. If you recall, this is a kiosk at a mall in Charlotte, NC that we visited in support of their eviction due to the materials that were being sold. (You can see my post here.) Mall management received a complaint and chose to end the lease for this business. I went to their site to see what had happened as the Simon Group that owns the mall had been flooded with folks complaining about their decision. It seems that they were told that they could remain open if they removed certain items. Free Market Warrior chose to leave rather than compromise. I say HURRAH! Read the article posted on their site here to find out details as well as to read about other items for sale in the same mall that the management does not deem offensive. The mall is a microcosm of our current society. I knew there was a reason why I don't enjoy shopping in malls!
