A Tennessee business man who has run commercials during NFL games for years has announced that he has canceled all commercials set to run during the 2017-2018 season due to his unabashed patriotism. Tennessee native Allan Jones has decided to take a stand in the ongoing national anthem debate. Jones who runs Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, and U.S. Money Shops and who has paid for commercials for all of them during NFL games has decided that his principals are more important than his bottom line.
For the 29 States we operate in, this isn’t much to them, but it’s a lot to us. The Tombras group is our ad agency in Knoxville and our national media buyer for both TV and Radio…… and don’t look for Hardwick on the NFL either. Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior! TAKING A STAND…NOT A KNEE!
In 2014, Cleveland business Hardwick Clothes was fighting bankruptcy and it seemed like its more than 130 years of experience might not make it another season.
That’s when Jones stepped in to give the clothing brand a new chance.
In his Facebook post, he says not to look for Hardwick Clothes on the NFL either.
