A woman shopping for wrapping paper in the Hanukkah section of a Southern California Walgreens said she was outraged to find a roll with a design that she claimed resembled swastikas.
Cheryl Shapiro said she was with her grandson at the store in Northridge on Saturday when she spotted a geometric blue-and-silver print that featured lines connecting in a pattern reminiscent of the Nazi symbol.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes, I had no idea what to do,” she said.
Shapiro said the rolls were removed after she complained to managers.
“I told them I wanted this taken off the shelves immediately – not just your store, but national,” Shapiro said. “I was really putting my foot down because I was appalled by this.”
At least one other store in Chatsworth carried the same wrapping paper, NBC4 has learned.
