Dicks’ Sporting Goods Chose Social Justice Warriors Over Its Customers

Now the company will be closing stores

The Free Beacon has the story.

Dick’s Sporting Goods told investors during the Goldman Sachs Retailing Conference that its gun-control stance hurt sales of its hunting business, outdoors business, and that it may close its outdoor-focused Field & Stream stores. Edward Stack, chairman and CEO of Dick’s, said during the event that the sporting goods chain’s recent 3.9 percent drop in same-store sales was the result of a mix of factors beyond their control as well as some he called “self-imposed.” Specifically, he said, “the decisions we made on firearms” negatively affected their bottom line but the drop in sales was something they expected. They did not, however, regret their decision to change a number of their gun-sales policies and back new gun-control legislation.

Dicks not only abandoned selling AR-15s and other guns, but then hired anti-gun lobbyists to lobby for gun control. They treated their customers like the enemy and the customers responded.
