Wegmans stores sold out of Trump wines: Did boycott threats backfire?

The Feb. 15 Economy & Business article entitled "Wegmans chain is urged to pull the plug on Trump wines" described a threat by the Prince William County chapter of the National Organization for Women to boycott the supermarket chain unless it pulls Trump Winery products from its Virginia stores.

The Gates-based grocer said its 10 Virginia stores had mostly sold out of many varieties of the Trump-banded wine despite an effort to boycott the product and Wegmans for selling the product that gained widespread public attention earlier in the week.

Yet, since news of the boycott broke, Natale told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that sales of the Trump Winery products at Wegmans have soared - selling out of bottles on the shelves in back-up inventory. "How a product performs is our single measure for what stays on our shelves and what goes".

"Individual shoppers who feel strongly about an issue can demonstrate their convictions by refusing to buy a product", Natale continued. "When enough people do the same, and sales of a product drop precipitously, we stop selling that product in favor of one that's in greater demand".

Wegmans is the latest retail chain to find itself facing criticism from customers over Trump branded items.

"Certainly if Wegmans is carrying Trump wines, I personally will not shop there", Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, told the Washington Post.
