Verizon’s online store is being open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for the first time in its history.
The store’s owners say their goal is to be a welcoming place for people of all backgrounds.
But, some say, that means being inclusive.
Fox News is reporting that one of the owners of the Verizon store, who wished to remain anonymous, said that at least one customer was offended when a white customer ordered a sandwich with the word “white” on it.
“The customer asked if it was from the store or the internet and was told it was the store,” the owner said.
“The customer said he was just trying to understand why it was on there and was not offended.”
But the store owner also said that he and his family are not racists, nor do they discriminate.
“If someone is going to ask me about my religion, I’m not going to say that I’m a Christian or a Muslim or anything of that nature.
I’m just a guy who loves to cook and love to make delicious food and wants to share that with others,” he said.
