While for the rest of country, it is still celebrating Canada Day, it appears that in Quebec the day is “Moving Day holiday”, this to a Best Buy promotion that provoke an angry response on social media.

Best Buy is defending its decision, CBC News reports.

The retailer says July 1 is a popular moving day in Quebec, since many leases in the province terminate at the end of June.

Early Sunday afternoon, Best Buy Canada’s Facebook page had about 30 angry posts from customers, many of them threatening to boycott the store.

“You know we celebrate Canada Day in Quebec too, right?” wrote Facebook user Lori-Anne Sernoskie.

Elizabeth Henry joked, “Can anyone tell me where to find a Moving Day flag? I have a Canadian Flag that needs replacing.”

Danielle Jang, spokeswoman for Best Buy, replied to the criticism in a statement sent to CBC News.

“Like every year, we feel it is important to recognize the Moving Day holiday in Quebec because it is a significant day in this market and it’s the only place in Canada where this happens,” she said.

“We want to celebrate and recognize this as an important day.”
