A big thank you to Dick's Sporting Goods!

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. reported earnings and sales that beat expectations on Tuesday, which CFRA’s Camilla Yanushevsky attributes, in part, to the retailer’s pullback on gun sales. The results sent shares soaring 18.6% in Tuesday trading, en route to the third biggest one-day percentage gain since Dick’s Sporting Goods DKS, -1.88% went public. Same-store sales growth of 6% was the best showing since 2013, according to the athletic retailer.

During a media tour for his book, “It’s How We Play the Game,” Dick’s Sporting Goods Chief Executive Edward Stack talked about the decisions the company has made with relation to its gun business. The policy changes started in 2012 after the Sandy Hook shootings.

Following the Feb. 14, 2018 mass killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., Dick’s Sporting Goods stopped selling guns to customers below the age of 21. Moreover, CEO, Edward Stack announced that the company had scrapped $5 million in assault rifles that were still in stock.

On the T.V. show Sunday Morning, I saw a really great segment with CEO Edward Stack regarding this issue. I've posted the link below.

1. I buy quite a bit from Dick's.

We don’t have one locally but their online store is great. When I get a customer service survey after my purchase, I always be sure to tell them how much I appreciate their stance on gun sales.
