SodaStream boycott - Your chance to complain and feel great about it!
SodaStream Boycott Advocates,
We’re writing to ask that you stop by a local Kitchen Kaboodle store to request that they stop selling SodaStream products. You won’t be the only one stopping by to register your complaint. We’re asking all SodaStream boycott advocates to join in a Marathon Complaint Session in late October & early November. For three days, we’ll flood Kitchen Kaboodle with personal requests to stop selling SodaStream products. We’re doing this to send the store owners a strong message about the importance of de-shelving SodaStream products, and a strong message about our ability to mount a serious public boycott effort should they continue selling SodaStream products.
The Marathon Complaint Session is scheduled for Friday, October 31st, Saturday, November 1st and Monday, November 3rd.
To participate in the Marathon Complaint Session, simply decide which Kitchen Kaboodle store you wish to visit, then click on the link for that store:
Ø To select the Northeast Portland Store at 1520 N.E. Broadway Street at 16thAvenue, click here: Sign-up sheet for Northeast Portland Store
Ø To select the Northwest Portland Store at 404 N.W. 23rd Avenue at Flanders Street, click here: Sign-up sheet for the Northwest Portland Store
After you register for a time slot at one of these stores, we’ll send you specific instructions for the event, including suggested wording for your verbal complaint.
Consider taking a friend along for the experience!
Here’s more background: In recent months, our SodaStream boycott planning team has been reaching out (quietly) to the owners of Kitchen Kaboodle, asking that they halt their sales of SodaStream products. We’ve sent multiple letters and placed numerous phone calls. The owners have refused to de-shelve their SodaStream products, and have refused even to meet with us to discuss the matter. So we’re ramping up the pressure.
Also planned for Kitchen Kaboodle is the delivery of signed petitions, which many of you have helped to gather. To date we’ve gathered nearly 600 handwritten signatures (!) asking Kitchen Kaboodle (and Target Galleria) to cease their sales of SodaStream products. Look for a separate e-mail message regarding delivery of those signed petitions some weeks from now.
