COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado —
A Colorado sports apparel store owner is closing up shop months after he vowed to ban Nike items because of the brand’s support of Colin Kaepernick.
As KOAA reported on Monday, Stephen Martin, owner of Prime Time Sports, said it became difficult to continue business with Nike making apparel for a lot of pro and college sports teams. The brand has exclusive contracts with the NFL and NBA, for example.
“Being a sports store without Nike is kind of like being a milk store without milk or a gas station without gas. How do you do it? They have a monopoly on jerseys,” said Martin.
