A big organisation - nothing for strong-willed New Zealanders
With tonight’s development that rugbyworldstore.com is now shipping to New Zealand again, we call the Boycott Adidas Campaign a great success, and call it to an end.
The creator of the Facebook group, Carolyn Farrell, as well as spokesperson, Daniel Farrell, thank every person who has joined the group and every media source who has taken up the story.
“This announcement really does end the campaign for us.” spokesperson Daniel Farrell said, “There are people on the group who have said they want to continue the boycott until Adidas lowers the prices. That is entirely up to them, but is not something that I or Carolyn will be taking part in. The group was created for the specific purpose of having this breach of the free market removed, and that is what has now happened. We are proud that we have achieved this. Anyone who wants to continue this, we wish you luck, but will not be a part of that.”
“The group’s description was quite clear about what this page was about.” creator, Carolyn Farrell said, “It said ‘Kiwis show your disgust at the behaviour of Adidas in blocking the sales of 2011 All Blacks Rugby Shirts to New Zealand from rugbyworld[store].com. Boycott them until they either drop the price to the same as the rest of the World pays or let us shop at any rugby shop in the world.’ It was an either/or situation. We have had one of these now, and therefore our job is done – the boycott is over”
Thank you again for all your support, New Zealand. It has been greatly appreciated. We have succeeded. Congratulations, New Zealand.
