A Colorado sporting goods store is shutting down just a few months after it took all Nike products off its shelves over the company’s decision to feature Colin Kaepernick in the 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign.
Stephen Martin, the store’s owner, told KOAA News 5 in Pueblo (CO) that Prime Time Sports will close after over than 20-years in business. He assigned blame for the closure partly to the removal of player jerseys for sale in the store.
Martin also stated that he cancelled a scheduled appearance by Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall in 2016, once Marshall decided to take a knee during the national anthem.
“As much as I hate to admit this, perhaps there are more Brandon Marshall and Colin Kaepernick supporters out there than I realized,” said Martin.
