Nike k!lling off the Mom and Pops??
 

 
Nike cuts ties with several local stores
04/12/2013 4:52 PM
By Esther Lee
Nike is giving the boot to several small, local retailers. Without explanation.

CBS3 first reported Friday afternoon that the athletic wear company told select area stores that as of June 30, their accounts are being cut off. The reason why remains unclear.

Business owners throughout the Philadelphia and Camden regions have received emails from the sporting apparel and footwear company saying that the retailer is "exercising its right to terminate your accounts." It's unknown whether Nike is taking the same approach with stores in other cities.

Keith Sherman, store manager of the three Real McCoy Athletic Footwear locations throughout the region (in Olney, on Cecil B. Moore Avenue and in Camden), says Nike products account for 75 to 80 percent of his store's sales. "Those numbers are staggering," he said over the phone Friday.

Even more mysterious is the manner in which Nike is handling the situation.

"We had scheduled a meeting at the Nike Headquarters in Portland, Oregon with our sales rep," Sherman said. "And that meeting was canceled that day — they wouldn't even see us," he added. The account termination email arrived in store owner William Chung's inbox shortly after the canceled meeting in Portland. The notice listed "no reasons whatsoever" as to why Nike was severing ties with the shop. Sherman says Real McCoy Athletic Footwear has been doing "good business" with Nike for over 23 years.

Currently, small "mom-and-pop" shops like Top Shoes, Center City Sports and Shoe Plus are among the only known stores affected.

Nike said in a statement released to CBS3:

“Nike is constantly evaluating its distribution needs with a view to enhancing its brand. This includes adapting our distribution strategy to the changes in our consumers’ purchasing behavior, the retail landscape, and our brand strategy.”

Nike did not return our request for comment on Friday. More to come.

^what?

It probably has to do with shoes being sold early or resellers being able to grab FSRs.

Nike has been doing a lot of strange things lately. Last month they decided not to send anymore launch product to outlet or Mills mall locations

Gentrification is a dynamic that emerges in poor urban areas when residential shifts, urban planning, and other phenomena affect the composition of a neighborhood. Urban gentrification often involves population migration as poor residents of a neighborhood are displaced. In a community undergoing gentrification, the average income increases and average family size decreases. This generally results in the displacement of the poorer, pre-gentrification residents, who are unable to pay increased rents, and property taxes, or afford real estate. Often old industrial buildings are converted to residences and shops. New businesses, which can afford increased commercial rent, cater to a more affluent base of consumers—further increasing the appeal to higher income migrants and decreasing the accessibility to the poor. Often, resident owners unable to pay the taxes are forced to sell their residences and move to a cheaper community.

I have no sympathy. I'm sure Nike cracked down on the shady businesses and hopefully left the legit ones standing. If not, oh well.

This sums it up pretty much.

or just out right buys them like Walmart.

I know this, Nike isn't doing this if it's not in their best interest, whatever that may be
