Remember the guy that pulled all Nike gear from his store because of Kaep?

Seems that the free market spoke up and told him to retire.

After NFL players started taking a knee during the national anthem, Stephen Martin decided to stage a protest of his own.

In a bold move for his financial bottom line, Martin pulled all Nike gear from his Colorado Springs sports store, Prime Time Sports, a decision prompted by Nike's partnership with Colin Kaepernick.

"We have a choice. We have a voice. And I am not choosing [sic] to be a NIKE dealer anymore," Martin wrote last fall on his Facebook page. "Everything NIKE 1/2 price until its [sic] all gone."

The gesture did not have the effect Martin expected.

"As much as I hate to admit this," Martin told KOAA News5 on Monday, "perhaps there are more Brandon Marshall and Colin Kaepernick supporters out there than I realized."


His store, after 21 years, is now closing.

Yeah he is pretty realistic on why his store folded online sellers and lack of Nike items. The press though want to make it about Kaep. and somehow the folding was customers support of left causes.

Well I've done my tiny part to impact Nike and Dick's business, but I'm not doing as well with Amazon.

Kaep what's social justice for all yet takes money from Nike. Nike seams to hate Chinese, Thai, Singaporians, Malays, Bangledeshies and Filipinos to name a few. They all run sweat shops.

I'm the same. However, someone told me that Walmart has free 2 day shipping on most items and their prices are similar to Amazon on the same good with the same contracted sellers.

Use Amazon, and other online retailers, only for emergencies and things that cannot be bought locally. It's the only way to preserve small/box store businesses.

I travel for work a ton and live in the “boonies” when I’m home. Also. Can’t find a lot of what I buy locally.

There's figuratively no way to preserve small businesses offering a tangible good in America.

None. That battle was lost over a decade ago.
