At this rate of customers avoiding them how long can they last? I hope not very. They were always overpriced anyway.That is a given. The CEO did state he expected backlash but he needed to realize gun owners also do fishing, hiking, hunting, love sports, running and jogging.
Ain't that the truth. I have never purchased a pair of nikes for myself but I sinned the other day... my daughter blew out her old Adidas so we had to get her a new pair. Went to Academy and 90% of the shoes were nike and LITERALLY the only pair in her size were nike (and only 2 pair at that). Had to bite the bullet and buy them.my Nike tennis shoes were shot, so I went to the galleria to get some new ones. Well my galleria/Academy, 99% of the shoes were Nike. Told the guy looking for a pair similar to these, don't care about the price, any brand other than Nike. he replied, I understand. I have a nice travel carry on bag that has Nike on it. trying to figure out how to hide the Nike, because i like the bag. :texasflag
Yep their marketing team is focusing on kids and sports team. Same strategy as Yeti cancelling the 2A and Hunting community and wanting to cater to the water sports fanatics and BBQ teams.I just saw one of their nauseating commercials. A bunch of pathetic-looking kids falling apart because their school sports programs have been cancelled. It doesn't happen around here (that I know of), but there are places where they're doing that to extort more money from taxpayers. There are lots of things our public schools could cut out, and we'd be better off. But they pick things that will make the kids miserable, so the parents will approve more money.
Dick's is playing into that whole scam with these commercials. If I wasn't already done with them, that would do it for me. No offense to the OP - he was only trying to share a good deal. But I wouldn't buy anything from Dick's. I'd take it if they were giving it away, because that would just speed up the process of putting them out of business.
