Camping World CEO upset over flag permit

GEORGETOWN, Ky. — At each of the 130 Camping World stores nationwide, CEO Marcus Lemonis says a giant American flag can be seen waving in the air.

“We light it, we have a giant ceremony. It really is, you know, to pay homage to our customers and surrounding residents,” Lemonis said.

As the final touches are made to the new Camping World store off exit 125 in Georgetown, Lemonis says he is frustrated.

“We applied for the sign, it was approved. We applied for the flag and it was denied because the city told us it was essentially just another sign,” Lemonis said.

One comment

  1. On this one everyone will agree with Marcus. If the Am Legion, DAV, and VFW hear of this there may be some pressure on city to figure the flag is not a sign.
