Dicks Sporting Good’s last quarter numbers were awful. According to CNBC chain-wide sales have dropped 4%, and Dicks is claiming its drop comes from the “pull back from the hunting business.”
Dicks Sporting Good’s created new AR-15 sales in their stores which created outrage from many shoppers. It is evident that the drop-in sales come directly from this corporate activism, but the CEO tried to shift blame also on Under Armor. He claims since Under Armor is selling their stuff at stores like Kohl’s is why their sales at Dicks dropped.
“As expected, sales were impacted by the strategic decisions we made regarding the slow growth, low margin hunt and electronics businesses, which accounted for nearly half of our comp decline,” Stack said in a statement. “In addition, we experienced continued significant declines in Under Armour sales as a result of their decision to expand distribution.”
Dick’s banned sales of so-called “assault rifles” at its stores and at its sister retailer, Field & Stream. It also banned the sale of “high capacity” magazines and barred the sale of any gun to any customer under 21 years of age.
Dicks Sporting Good’s admitted they knew there would be a drop-in sale from the new policy, but hoped it would bring in a new crowd of costumers.
For any-one who has a brain could have predicted Leftists would not be spending their money on sporting goods. Leftists are always the people that never played sports but hung out in their rich parent’s basements complaining about the bourgeois.
