Bakery owner overwhelmed by response to sign
The phone at Schuler's has been ringing nonstop and even more customers have been flocking to the longtime Springfield, Ohio bakery.
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.
His opinion is clearly on display as you enter the bakery.
The blue and white sign states "this store is politically incorrect," and says, "We say Merry Christmas, God Bless America and we salute our flag."That's exactly what we need. More people with the guts to stand up and proclaim their support for the traditional American values that made thus country great. And if that offends some whiny little overly sensitive politically correct losers, too bad.
Since he put it up, he says he had requests for interviews and calls from all over the country and even internationally.
"We have gotten calls from Hawaii. Some veterans that want to support us. We've gotten calls from Cuba today. We have gotten calls from every state in the United States," he said.
Customers, such as Alvin Cobb, are applauding the small business owner.
"It's good that he voices his opinion and I support it all the way," Cobb said.
"I love the sign. I am glad they had the guts to show something like that, be American and show it. As a businessman you are always afraid to step on someone's toes, say the wrong thing. When I saw it I said I should put one on my truck," (Furnace repairman Kenny) Adams said.
