No idea what a poppy is. Sorry. I also don't really care. In the united states you wear whatever they tell you to wear. I support the idea that they're deciding what you can and can't wear.

u2u me with your shop name and location. I will send them an email telling them I read on facebook they are NOT patriotic. I will also tell them if what I read on FB is really their policy, I will do everything I can to get a movement going to boycott their place of business, including writing to their local media outlets.
I will keep you, and how I really heard of this travesty out of anything I do.
Budget retailer Poundland has been forced to review its dress code after a row erupted on Twitter and Facebook following claims that it had banned staff from wearing remembrance poppies.
In a statement on Facebook, Poundland said it was not against employees wearing a poppy, but they were not allowed to do so on the shop floor because it is not part of staff uniform.
But the company said today that it will now allow workers to 'use their own discretion in wearing poppies' after hundreds of customers threatened to boycott its stores.
