Dr Ben Levinson MD sent a message to Craig Jelinek that said:
As a long time customer,stock holder and physician in Columbia,SC who regularly sends patients to your store for prescriptions and otc products, I must write you in dismay of your reasoning for stopping Palmetto Pimento Cheese due to owner posting his feelings on Antifa and Black Lives Matters.
Whether you agree with him or not he has a right under our constitution to freedom of speech and pulling his product potentially jeopardizes jobs in our state many of which I suspect shop in your Myrtle Beach store or other Costcos.
I think your company should stick to what you do best which is provide quality products, support small business and stay out of politics .
If you continue making decisions like this you may lose one of your best advocates namely me.
Thank you for listening
