The audacity to sell Trump Wine!  How dare they?!?

 

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2017/02/14/this-beloved-grocery-chain-is-the-latest-company-to-face-trump-related-boycotts/?utm_term=.7e97c4211843

 

 

 

The regional supermarket chain with a cult following is facing calls to remove Trump Winery products from its 10 Virginia stores. Over the weekend, about 300 members of the Prince William County chapter of the National Organization for Women made plans to pressure Wegmans to stop carrying products from the Charlottesville winery.

 

 


The Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans sells 237 Virginia wines from 58 wineries at its local stores. Among those wines are five varieties from the Trump Winery, including Trump Blanc de Blanc and Trump Winery Chardonnay. According to Jo Natale, vice president of media relations for Wegmans, the company has been selling wines from the Charlottesville winery since 2008, before it was owned by Donald Trump — and long before he campaigned for the White House.

 

“Our role as a retailer is to offer choice to our customers,” she said, adding that the company ultimately decides whether to stock a product based solely on how well it sells.

 

“Individual shoppers who feel strongly about an issue can demonstrate their convictions by refusing to buy a product,” Natale said. “When enough people do the same, and sales of a product drop precipitously, we stop selling that product in favor of one that’s in greater demand.”

That actually was my first thought.  'Yay!  Shorter lines!'

Did you boycott the bookstores that sold Barack Obama's books?

 

Why boycott the whole store?  Just don't buy the wine.

Obama was disconnected from investments.

Breaking news, people don't have to buy things just because they have Trump's name on them.

 

Yet.

Yeah sure.  He made NO money from his book sales.  What a crock. Disconnected or not, he still made money that would be his.

Difference being that the profits from Obama's books did not go to Obama but to the families of injured veterans.

He may have, but he wasn't involved with the business end of it while he was president.

 

You guys really need to skate over this.

Are you 100% sure about that claim? The man is worth over 12 million he had to have some investments.

The wine is pretty good ......

I was wondering about that. I've seen it at our local liquor store but haven't tried it. 

On your recommendation, perhaps I will. If I don't like it, I can always jump on here an whine about it.  B)

But hopefully the clueless protestors will still boycott the Abingdon store.

 

They are probably the same butt cheeks who aisle block with their carts so it's a win, win.
