It's hard for me to believe that a business can be this stupid. DESTROYING 5 Million dollars in assets?

Frankly I doubt it. Even for a "Virtue signaling" publicity move, it's hard to believe.

on paper they were probably "destroyed" as a tax loss........they probably all were sold and went out the doors of stores. Someone should request the serial numbers of destroyed firearms.

I stopped going in our local Dick's when they originally announced their anti-gun policy.

Now being a stock held company,what right did they have to reduce the price of assets that stockholders bought into ? Isn't a company suppose to be looking out for its stockholders ?

The name of the store says it all! They are going under and trying to grab a rope before they sink!

They will be able to write off the expenses if they need them. If they unloaded some overpriced weapons that were not selling well for them due to other actions taken, they may be actually raising profits and helping the stock share owners. Businesses don't always make the decisions that some of us feel are correct then we are not doing their financials or their forward planning strategies either.

They didn't unload overpriced weapons, they destroyed $5 million in inventory. Like flushing $5,000,000 down the toilet. Big difference.

Maybe it has already been mentioned but depending on they were destroyed isnít that a felony in and of itself?

I wouldn't be even a little surprise if this was just a BS story to get more attention. And it worked.

I'm with you on that. But I also think it really hurt their business as many hunters just decided never to darken their door again. That's the reason the Field & Stream segment of stores basically folded soon after. They are trying to sell off some of the stores.

Even if they were not overpriced they have a claimed 5 million of value that will not be sold and thus there is already a cost, it is just a matter of how they will claim the cost and when.
Businesses that size hire very high level comptrollers to help them make financial decisions, even if this one was more for political reasons or not.

Why would it be a felony to destroy your own property ?
