Default Adios Nike

Vert interesting that as of January 1st ALL Nike products; shoes, equipment, sports gear, anything with a Nike logo is gone from all Villages golf and tennis retail locations. A few close out items remain only. Do not know the reasoning behind the decision, but for myself and quite a number of my close friends you could almost hear the round of applause.

Nike has gotten out of the golf business. Even Tiger Woods had to find another manufacturer

Sad to see the usual folks in here jump to a "political" conclusion without bothering to research facts. Must get old to always be wrong because of easily being led by made up emotional lies.

Thanks again to those who post actual facts.

Also interesting to note when Nike announced they were getting out of golf.....AUGUST 2016....but we obviously have posters that attribute this to something other than a business decision.
