Based on my last experience with Cracker Barrel, focusing on what products it sells in its stores is misplaced.

The food in that place is awful!!!

Seconding you on the food. 7/11 hotdogs are better tasting. Taco Bell is marginally better.

But (you knew I was going to put in a but) ....

They are removing some Duck Dynasty merchandise (property of A&E). Duck Commander (property Robertson family) is still being carried. So - what message are they actually sending?

We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores.

    We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.

So they are selling it but they aren't?  If they continue to offer Duck Commander products but are pulling others, maybe we are reading it wrong?  Could they be pulling A&E (Hearst)'s merchandise but keeping Duck Commander which is supposedly owned by the Robertsons?

That's exactly what I read into it as well. I think people are improperly angry at them. They are pulling the A&E stuff.

Based on the statement, they pulled it because of what Phil said.  Another place that will not get my business again.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton
