Leave Wegmans out of it
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.
Never mind that Wegmans introduced Trumpbrand wines when the winery was owned by another vintner as part of the chain’s ongoing effort to purchase locally. Never mind that Giant, Harris Teeter, Safeway, Kroger and Whole Foods carry Trump-brand wines. Never mind that Wegmans consistently ranks at the very top in terms of employee morale and customer service. Never mind that NOW could easily have called for a boycott of Trump products without impugning this particular supermarket chain.
Frankly, it makes me wonder about NOW’s motivation and reckless disregard for the thousands of Wegmans employees grateful for employment, including college students, retirees, immigrants and, yes, women returning to the workplace.
