Carwash criticized for ladies only specials
CANTERBURY, KENT, ENGLAND — USA Hand Car Wash has come under fire for offering a discount to female customers.
The carwash offers £2 off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for ladies.
Parity, an equal rights organization, has called the promotion “ridiculous.”
“It seems extraordinary to me,” Parity Chairman John Mays said in the KentOnline.com story. “So us men have to make sure we go with the wife or girlfriend to be eligible for a discount? It’s ridiculous … There doesn’t seem to be any good reason for it from a business perspective. Rather than attracting customers, I think it will turn men off going there.”
Carwash Manager Adion Elezi said they have been running the special for six years and have never had any complaints.
“If anyone thinks it’s sexist, they’ve got a problem themselves – I think it’s outrageous and sick,” Elezi said.
