In a quick reversal of its previous decision to remove some Duck Dynasty products from its shelves after recent comments made by Phil Robertson, Cracker Barrel announced Sunday that it is putting all its Duck Dynasty products back in its stores.
“You flat out told us we were wrong,” the company said of the public’s response to that previous decision.
Here’s the full statement Cracker Barrel posted on its Facebook page Sunday morning:
Dear Cracker Barrel Customer:
When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done.
You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong.
Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores.
And, we apologize for offending you.
We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different.
We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family.
In its previous statement, Cracker Barrel said it would “continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores,” but it indicated that it had “removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.”
