I'm just wondering what companies are on everyone's boycott list. Mine are-
Dicks "sporting goods"
Target
Gander Outdoors
Yeti
Kroger
I don't want to support any company that is anti-fur, anti-2A or anti-Christian. I know that there are many more that I didn't list (that I don't know about/don't recall at this time) and I know it is probably near impossible to boycott them all, but I would like to know of others so that I can try to spend my money in the right places.
Thanks for any input.


When life gets me down..... you know hunting/trapping season is closed.

Owner (at least one) is very liberal leaning. Plenty of other good beers to drink that at least don't decide to mix politics with business.

Don't forget Levis.

As far as what Walmart has done, that's capitalist competition and I don't have a problem with it. I do still appreciate the local small business owners and buy from them, but I have no reason to boycott Walmart for being successful and doing it within the rules of our society.

My preference is that business owners focus on conducting business and stay out of politics that has nothing to do with their business.

I am not a fan of Walmart, But they did not out compete the small stores. When towns grew and many grew fast, the local hardware, grocery, shoe store etc. did not and many could not because of the constraints of down town, no parking etc. If the local grocery would have moved to the edge of town and grew with the town, there would have been no room for walmarts etc.

Target because of their foolish, dangerous rest room policies and because Target is the only major store who will not allow Salvation Bell ringers at Christmas time.

I DO support Chick-Fil-A because of their patriotism and Christian attitude toward the poor in my area.


Banning guns is like trying to stop drunk drivers by keeping sober drivers from owning cars.

Wal-mart also "works" with their suppliers to secure a lower price point (often to the detriment of the consumer as far as quality goes). Yes, they are a very successful example of capitalism, good and bad. Low price = low quality. Low price = low profit margin. Low profit margin requires low manufacturing costs. Jobs go to developing countries. But the consumer's desire/demand for lower prices drives this. We can be our own worst enemy some times. I'll pay more for local/better quality.

I shop small and local as much as I possibly can. Never been to Costco, Meijer, haven't set foot in Wal-mart in 10 plus years. Hate shopping Home Depot, but the local lumberyard doesn't stock much of any pressure treated lumber and I can't afford cedar.

Dick's Sporting Goods, Levi's, Starbucks, Humane Society and Nike. None of those are welcome in my house. I'll be happy to answer why if anyone needs more than speculation.

I don't disagree at all with the scenario described. Many local businesses failed to see the future and move to meet the challenge it presented. That created an opening for the Walmarts, Home Depots, Lowes, etc. Also, improved transportation via the highway system and the move to a more global economy changed both how people shopped and the competition for shoppers dollars in a way that favored those that bought in bulk. In my mind, that IS out competing the small stores. The process is continuing to change today with internet purchases often being favored over the big box stores. Amazon has led the way and Walmart, Lowes and others are having to adapt.

New Glarus owners wife is ANTI-TRAPPING and fur. I have emailed them no responses. None of their products allowed on our properties.

Applebees no conceal carry or will I enter any other business that limits my right to self defense.
