    The hardware store chain said a statement circulating on social media indicating it had stopped selling products to protesters had been “manipulated.” Despite social media reports and rumors to the contrary, Ace Hardware says that its stores have not stopped selling supplies to people protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. Protests in North Dakota have been ongoing for months.

    Patagonia's Black Friday sales hit a record-breaking 10-million dollars... and they're donating all of it! That amount is five times more than what the outdoor clothing and gear company expected to earn, but Patagonia is keeping its promise to give away the sales it brought in on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The 10-million dollars will go to nearly 800 environmental groups around the world. The vice president of environmental activism at Patagonia says the company came up with the idea to help bring people together after a divisive presidential election.

    MANHATTAN (CNN)– Tiffany, the iconic jewelry retailer, said on Tuesday that sales in the U.S. were hurt by all the chaos surrounding its flagship store on New York City’s 5th Avenue, which just so happens to be neighbors with Trump Tower. While Tiffany didn’t mention the President-elect by name, it was clear what Tiffany was referring to when it said that there has been “some adverse effect on traffic” at the 5th Avenue location due to “the impact of recent election-related activity.” Tiffany added that there was “softness” at this store and warned that sales could be hit again in...

    Mrs. Strac and three friends just returned from two hours of retail therapy. In most years, the stores at all the local malls would be overflowing with merchandise this weekend. Today, they were full of shoppers, but almost empty of items to purchase. The shelves were actually bare in many departments. Mrs. Strac questioned a number of managers and received the same reply from each. They all reported they had been overflowing with merchandise on Friday, but as soon as the stores opened, they were inundated with record numbers of purchasers. These were not just “tire-kickers” but actual buyers. In...

If you shop at Macy’s, please beware that your daughters and nieces may run into a strange looking man dressed as a woman in the store’s bathrooms and fitting rooms. More important, you should know that they have no rights. Indeed, a security guard, Javier Chavez, was fired from his job at a Macy’s store in Queens, New York, simply because he responded to a complaint by a woman and her daughter that a man dressed as a woman was in the women’s restroom.

Shoes.com, a Canadian online shoe store, became the first retailer to announce it was dropping Ivanka Trump's shoe line last week, following the GrabYourWallet campaign. Shannon Coulter kicked off the boycott on October 11, a reference to Trump's now famous 'grab them by the p***y' remark from the audio tape and numerous allegations of sexual assault by the president-elect.

    The heirs of late Walmart founder Sam Walton are backing Hillary Clinton for president. Collectively, the leading members of Arkansas' Walton family have given about $714,000 to the candidate and the Democratic Party during the current election cycle, federal records show. The donations are an example of the longstanding ties between the Walton and Clinton families. It is an awkward situation for the candidate, a former Walmart board member, since most of her allies in organized labor and the broader liberal movement detest the Waltons, mainly because of the company's anti-union stance.

    There are two indisputable facts surrounding Target’s decision to allow men to use the same bathrooms and changing rooms as women and little girls. First, Target’s stock has taken pounding since April. Second quarter earnings fell to $680 million, according to Market Watch. And revenue fell 7.2 percent. Second, more than 1.4 million consumers have joined American Family Association’s nationwide boycott of the nation’s second-largest discount retailer. The debate is whether there is a correlation between those two facts. Target CEO Brian Cornwell told Fortune magazine in May that the transgender bathroom policy has nothing to do with their financial...

The company bucked a string of weak results by higher-end brick-and-mortar competitors like Target, Macy’s and Kohls.

Ordinarily you tend not to see multi-million dollar worldwide brands weighing in on political debate but the American presidential race has proved to be a tempting source of revenue for this clothing brand, who are currently selling...

    Evangelist Franklin Graham has called on shareholders of Target to dump their stock — saying the department store's policy regarding the use of its bathrooms by transgender people invites "sexual perverts into their stores." His plea follows reports of a transgender woman being arrested at a Target store in Utah for allegedly snapping pictures of a teenager in a changing room. "I told you so, it was just a matter of time. Target is putting their customers at risk — and their shareholders. I wouldn't be surprised if people started dumping their stock, and they should!" Graham, who runs the...

    By Dean Weingarten I chanced to be at the local WalMart in Yuma today.  This is the store on the frontage road off of old Highway 8, East of town.  Until Friday, June 24, 2016, I had not seen any .22 Long Rifle in the store for three years.On that date, there were 2,300 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags and 1,000 rounds of CCI Standard Velocity.  The Mini-Mags were in plastic 100 round boxes at $7.47 a box.  The Standard Velocity were in paper, 50 round boxes at $3.47 a box.  I was told by the clerk, Yittzel, that they would...

    An Idaho man who told police he identifies as a woman was arrested Tuesday after allegedly taking photos of a woman in a Target fitting room, officials said. Sean Patrick Smith, 43, was allegedly dressed in women’s clothing when he entered the fitting room in the women’s section of the store in Ammon on Monday, East Idaho News reported. Smith, also known as Shauna Patricia Smith, then began taking pictures of a woman in the changing stall next to him, police said. “The woman was begging for help as she chased the man out the door,” a witness told East...

    Now that men have access to women’s bathrooms and fitting rooms at every Target store in America, many are using that opportunity to secretly film women and teenage girls. For example, a 16-year-old girl told station WDAY-TV in Fargo, N.D., that when she went into a dressing room, a man put his phone under the door with the camera facing toward her. “When she walked out, the man entered a different dressing room,” the station reported. Target declined to comment, but police are seeking a white male, age 30 to 50, possible around 6 feet tall, with a muscular build...

    The Daily Caller ^ | June 17, 2016 | Eric Owens, education editor
    In the wake of the long series of lean economic years since the onset of the Great Recession, America’s affluent millennials have taken to shopping for groceries, toiletries and even clothing at ultra-discount stores such as Dollar General and Family Dollar. It’s not just Pabst Blue Ribbon-drinking hipsters trying way too hard to be different, either. At Dollar General, members of the millennial generation — of all income brackets — accounted for nearly 25 percent of the company’s first quarter revenue in 2016, reports Reuters. Millennials, if you are not up on your demographic jargon, are the cohort of young...

    President Obama’s transgender bathroom guidance has schools in an uproar. Carl Gallups, a former Florida law-enforcement officer who holds a special deputy status within the Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff’s department, as bestowed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and who now serves as a pastor at Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Milton, has an idea to take on what he calls the transgender “insanity” sweeping the nation that doesn’t so much involve politics – but rather police.

    A spokesman for the American Family Association says he was clearly snubbed by Target officials today when he expressed his group's deep concerns about the retailer's bathroom policy. AFA's Abraham Hamilton III went to today's Target shareholders meeting in Southern California to raise concerns again about the company's policy allowing transgenders to use the bathroom or changing room of the gender in which they say they identify. AFA's concern has been that sexual predators may take advantage of the policy, thereby putting women and children at risk. "It's amazing. The response really was We don't care what you have to...

    A representative from the American Family Association (AFA) attended today's meeting of Target shareholders in southern California. AFA's Abraham Hamilton III was present to again express concern towards Target's recent policy change that allows men into women's restrooms. According to reports from One News Now, Target did more than triple-down on its perverse restroom policy. According to Hamilton, Target's response to the concerns raised by AFA was, "We don't care what you have to say. We don't care what the American Family Association represents. We don't care what those people who signed your petition represent. We are committed to the...
