“Store officials said they did a test by ending sales of hunting gear at 10 stores to see what the results would be. It’s not clear where those 10 stores were located.”
Hank:- Good way to piss off your customers.
“The store replaced its hunting merchandise with a different assortment of baseball, licensed products, and outerwear.”
Hank:- What next?- Are they going to start selling tea sets and cupcake recipe books.
“Sales were down for the company last quarter, declining 4.5 percent.”
Hank:- And likely to continue if you drive away some of your best customers.
