City Pages: Edina Car Wash boycotted over Bradlee Dean support
http://blogs.citypages.com/blotter/2011/08/bradlee_dean...

Do you want the turtle wax with your car wash? Oh, and do you want a little bit of anti-gay hate?

That's the question asked by a group that's calling for a boycott of the Edina Car Wash, claiming that it acts as a host for Bradlee Dean's "You Can Run But You Cannot Hide" fundraising team.

In the past, when City Pages reached out to Walmart about supporting the anti-gay crusader, Walmart backed away from Dean like he was strapped with dynamite, claiming that he'd lied to them about what his organization was doing.

City Pages reached out to the Edina Car Wash, and they, too, said this was all a big misunderstanding -- only this time, they're the only ones who know the truth about Dean, and everyone else has it wrong.

​The Car Wash, located on 54th Street and France Avenue, is the target of a Facebook campaign that's succinctly called "Boycott the Edina Car Wash." That group now has 174 "Likes," and, apparently, some convictions: When City Pages called Edina Car Wash, a manager told us the gas station had been getting e-mails from detractors.

More at link.

I always thought that place was a little off. They have a marquee and always have "spiritual" sayings on it.

1. And the one time I went a few years ago, they were not very friendly
Kind of impatient that I didn't automatically know exactly what to do.

So I am happy to boycott them aside from their association with Dean.

3. It's over: "Gas station divorces Bradlee Dean"

So after getting tossed from Walmart, Bradlee loses Edina Car Wash. But there are more gas stations...
