AIBU?

To not want an email from businesses telling me they'll be shut on Monday

I've already had at least six. I had no intention of a shopping trip Monday- can just about accept why supermarkets would do this but not clothes shops and other businesses, it just feels like stealth marketing.

Am I being unreasonable?

I suppose so. But surely people could just check on the websites or assume shops will be shut that day?

I couldn't agree more.
I had an email from a book company my sons school had been involved with, "reaching out" the day after the queen's death to check my son was okay. Terrible, cynical marketing. I was livid.

Well i work for a supermarket that is shutting till 5 but having checked the website there is no info on stating that they are shut , no doubt people will be queueing from 6am which is the normal opening

Surely it is better you know? I have had loads, mostly for shops I only buy online from, but I realise they have a duty to inform their customers of any closures. It only takes. moment to delete the e mails.

Almost every single company I've ever used has sent me that email. I just think it would be easier if the ones who were staying open emailed me.

Agreed- maybe the BBC can just say shops will be shut (they probably already have said that) and then we won't have to all keep being emailed.

I just delete them as I don’t intend on shopping anyway. Not really something I can get annoyed at!

They’re all pretending it’s not a PR exercise. While trying to get their memorabilia out quick enough to beat their competitors to it.

How's it one day of emails? Had them yesterday and today and I'm expecting more tomorrow.

I'm just sick of the emails now. Did get a pleasant surprise in an email from a local pub telling us they'd be open though.

It's grim. The company I work for has 6 brands. On the day she died we did a social media post for each expressing our condolences, and other than that we've had a marketing blackout until next Tuesday. No social posts, no emails.

I've found it really useful actually as them all coming at once is a good time to take a few minutes to hit all the unsubscribe buttons which I forget to do when then come in occasionally.

It's another chance to virtue signal. We are closed out of respect to the Queen.

No, you are closed as you usually would be on a bank holiday.

Also who knew that you weren't allowed to use social media if the Queen died? Is this something people learnt from other countries' monarchs dying?
