Thanks, Eastside Tucson Safeway for Getting Us in the News Again

Apparently, Jessica Simpson's homage to Demi Moore on the cover of ELLE magazine was slightly too scandalous for the manager of the Safeway at Tanque Verde and Catalina Highway, so they put a poorly crafted cardboard blockade to deter young, easily impressionable eyes. Then, since everyone loves to kick a state while it's down, someone sent the above photo to female-centric snark blog Jezebel. Super.

We spoke with spokeswoman for Safeway who said that this particular store made the decision to cover the magazine after it received multiple complaints from mothers with young children. She also said that other Safeway locations in the area had not received any complaints. She said the company tries to be sensitive to the complaints of their customers but does not have an official corporate policy on blocking magazine covers. Instead, those decisions are left up to the discretion of store managers.
