Add Target and Walmart to the growing list of retailers pulling Redskins merchandise from their online shelves.
The big-box giants continue a trend that’s making it virtually impossible for the Redskins organization to profit off of its name. According to Barrons.com, the Redskins’ landing page on both Walmart and Target’s websites did not return results as of yesterday morning. Target later confirmed to Barron’s that Redskins merchandise was removed from its website.
Walmart went a step further, issuing a statement announcing it would be discontinuing the sale of “items that reference the team’s name and logo.”
