Pepsi’s slogan may have once been “The Choice of a New Generation,” but one grocery store owner has chosen to no longer sell its products because they feature the NFL logo.

A Facebook post from S&Z Grocery in Athens, Alabama, stated the store would not sell the products until the logo is removed.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This may cause me to lose some business, but here goes. S&Z supermarket currently will not be selling 20 ounce Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. These two items are currently produced with the NFL logo on them. I refuse to sell the product until the logo is removed. I will not bow down in order to make a dollar as long as the athletes are allowed to bow down and disrespect the flag and country I love,” the Facebook post stated.

Phillip Stewart, the owner of the store, told WAFF he pulled the bottles off the shelf himself, saying it felt wrong to sell the products with the logo.

  1. He was probably slammed with every name in the book. His store was probably called to be boycotted. It is great to see a person stand up for their beliefs. It is too bad that more stores and people don’t actually stand up for their beliefs, they cave and give the left the continued encouragement to keep up their campaign of boycott and name calling and shameing of the owners until they back off their stand.
