Thank goodness i sold my stock in your company last September! With Sports Authority gone you had a chance to dominate your sector but when you have too much personal wealth as the billionaire you lose touch with your consumer base because of your left wing liberal ways. Your recent stand as a corporate sponsor of anti gun laws (hiring lobbyists) may have been the dumbest retail move since Coke changed its formula. The NRA and its members (half of your customers) will leave you. Your path will soon be that of Sports Authority as your company has already had poor performance (to much of the wrong inventory, stale looking stores, and poor quality merchandise) since 2017.
This anti gun move will be the nail in you coffin. It is a shame that after your father had such a terrific rags to riches story and start in 1948 that your company is going to be gone by 2019, bankrupt. You are not your father, dumbass.
Thank goodness for me that Scheels just built and incredible new store 5 minutes from my house and they have received all my business since opening. They are an amazing retailer and company that is in touch with their customers and they like the NRA and its members. You could have learned sometime from them. They will take your place in the market as the number 1 national sporting goods store because they deserve it and earned it.
Your new store opening in Fort Collins will be a complete failure because people would rather drive 25 minutes further to buy higher quality and higher priced items from Scheels. Look at your Loveland store sales since Scheel opened in Johnstown.
