Last year, the owner of a Colorado sportswear store decided to stop selling Nike products because Nike made anti-American protester Colin Kaepernick the face of their ad campaign. However, the store is usually right now closing its doors after a sharp drop in profits.
In September, Prime Time Sports owner Stephen Martin decided to ban Nike products via his Colorado Springs store after the sportswear giant went all in to support former San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick by featuring him on its 30th anniversary “Just Do which” ad campaign.
Even then, Martin noted which he would likely probably not survive without selling Nike products, although noted which was about the principle of the matter.
Sure enough, Martin is usually right now announcing which he is usually closing his doors, according to Yahoo News.
Martin told the media which he “just can’t keep the doors open anymore” since he stopped stocking Nike products.
There was no boycott of his store or any organized resistance to his stand against Nike, although a sportswear store which has no Nike products seriously limits its sales potential. Indeed, the shop owner again admitted which refusing to sell Nike products was not a Great long-term plan.
“Being a sports store without Nike is usually kind of like being a milk store without milk or a gas station without gas,” he said.
Martin also surmised which which seemed which his stand on principle was a lonely one.
“As much as I hate to admit which, perhaps there are more Brandon Marshall in addition to Colin Kaepernick supporters out there than I realized,” Martin lamented.
