Circle K Sunkus has apologized for their sale of the Foreigner Crime File magazine
It is to be regretted that our stores received shipments of such magazines which turned out to be including inappropriate expressions, and we are very sorry that we had sold some portion of the magazines before we removed all copies from all the Circle K Sunkus stores.
As we told you by e-mail, we are always making best efforts not to handle the magazines and books which could possibly offend public order and morals, and we are strongly sure that in case that similar event should happen, we’ll take an appropriate response such as immediate removal of the products, etc.
We appreciate your understanding.

They had responded to my original mail by stating that had removed the magazines with the exact same message they sent back to Jeremy of ATFM films. I replied by stating that I would continue to boycott their store unless they actually apologized, and they replied with a very straightforward apology. I’m very impressed with their response, and I will happily resume shopping at their stores.
