A call by 300 members of the Prince William County chapter of the National Organization for Women to boycott a popular Wegmans grocery chain for selling Trump wine seems to have resulted in its stores selling out of the wine. It backfired on liberals, the stores is now out of stock of the wine for a few weeks till they can reorder. The Trump vineyard is located in Charlottesville, Va.
Washington Times Reports:
A spokeswoman for Wegmans, a New York-based company, told Fox News on Monday that Trump wines flew off its shelves last week. Out of 10 locations, only its Charlottesville store did not completely sell out.
Jo Natale, Wegmans‘ vice president of media relations, told the network that 100 bottles of Trump Winery Meritage and 20 bottles of the Cru remained at its Charlottesville location as of Friday evening.
Fox News Reports:
“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. O’Neill’s call for a boycott doubles down on a digital campaign that sprung up just after the election calling on shoppers to #StopTrumpWine.
“Let’s demonstrate through economic action that the residents and business owners of Charlottesville will not stand for the hatred espoused by Eric Trump and those like him,” a statement on the group’s website reads.
The president’s supporters in Virginia fought back against the proposed boycott by heading to Wegmans and buying up as much wine as they could get their hands on.
Many turned to social media to proclaim their right to shop– and applauded the store for not caving to anti-Trump sentiments.
