“We will never forget…THESE GREAT ROLLBACK PRICES, Y’ALL!”
With September 11th this weekend, we prepare to honor the lives of those lost on that horrific day nearly 15 years ago. A Walmart in Florida, however, tried to do so in very poor taste.
The retailer held a massive soda display featuring the World Trader Center built with boxes of Coke Zero.

It was directly below a banner reading “We Will Never Forget” was a rollback price of $3.33 on a carton of soda displayed between the Twin Towers.
According to BuzzFeed, Twitter user @online_shawn was strolling through a Walmart in the Sunshine State when he noticed the display. He then snapped a picture and posted it to his Twitter.

His post garnered national attention with many people shaming the company for trying to make a buck off of the tragic date in such a distasteful way.
The in-store build out has since been taken down, according to a spokesperson for Walmart.
