Store Owner Goes Out of Business After Refusing To Sell Nike Products Over Kaepernick Ad
A sporting goods store owner in Colorado stopped selling Nike products because of its controversial Colin Kaepernick campaign...????And now it’s going out of business.
????Owner of Primetime Sports, Stephen Martin, will be closing down after “21 mostly good years” according to his Facebook page.
????He’s offering 40% off all his merchandise and saying thank you to everyone who helped support him.
????Nike’s ad campaign came out last year and featured former San Francisco 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the slogan "Believe in something.
Even if it means sacrificing everything." ????Kaepernick notoriously started kneeling during the National Anthem at games which began a league-wide protest.
????Nike’s campaign caused a national outcry with over 42,000 people tweeting the hashtag Nike Boycott.????Martin says that his store will remain open until the rest of his merchandise is sold and seems to be proud that he “didn’t give in.”??
