Lowes Home Improvements Apologizes for “Family Tree”

Lowe's companies, inc. Issued an apology after a photo featuring Christmas trees in their 2007 holiday catalogue was entitled "family trees."

The advertisement sparked an outcry from the American Family association. The conservative advocacy group has led boycotts against several retailers for using "happy holidays" in their advertisements instead of "merry Christmas."

A spokesperson for Lowe’s said the advertisement in the catalogue was an error and inconsistent with the company's practice of referring to the trees as Christmas trees.
