TEXAS TOWNSHIP -- Companies that have sold items with the confederate flag on them for years are now putting a stop to that. Those stores include Walmart.
This Walmart is in the heart of Texas, Texas Township that is just outside Honesdale. Inside and out there's a wide range of things for sale.
Everything but shirts, bumper stickers or flags depicting the confederate flag now that the multi-billion dollar corporation has said no more after the massacre at a historic black church in South Carolina.
"They shouldn`t be selling those flags, we`re one country. We shouldn`t be split up by flags," said Pete Maddalone of Lake Ariel.
The online auction site, eBay as well as Walmart and Sears which owns Kmart all have decided to stop selling merchandise with the confederate flag on it. Some customers said that`s the right move while others said they just don`t get it.
"It`s a flag and people have different perceptions of a flag. Don`t see why they should take it down," said Sheila DeGroat of Waymart.
DeGroat shops at Walmart. To her, it's not the flag that's hurtful.
"I think it`s the people that discriminate, people who have their own hatred. They all need to have peace."
Others, however, believe companies shouldn't be selling what may be perceived as symbols of discrimination and hate especially after the church shooting.
"While it is for some people a symbol of quote unquote heritage, it`s more so a symbol of oppression due to the Jim Crow laws in the deep south," said James Pasquale of Honesdale.
Amazon also plans to stop selling items bearing the confederate flag.
