    Who's flag is flying at Kum and Go's HQ?

    Remember, you do have choices where to shop!

    I took this photo at the Kum & GO HQ a couple weeks ago when I had a meeting in West Des Moines. Everyone knows that K&G's owner is a big Hawk supporter, however, I consider this blatantly alienating part of your customer base and bad business. As a marketer, I would never fly an ISU flag in front of my company unless my business was based off of ISU.

    Never noticed it before out there. Just passing it along,

    I can't imagine why the Hawks would ever call us little brother. It makes no sense to me.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Who's flag is flying at Kum and Go's HQ?

    I always base my purchases on what team the owner follows. I even go as far as to ask clerks if they are Hawk fans before allowing them to touch my yet-to-be purchases. If they answer yes, i just go to other stores.

    This can get tiresome sometimes, for i live 15 minutes from IC.

    I am approaching as a comment on a business decision, not necessarily as a fan. But I do thank you for being #2 to post!

    Edit: By your previous posts, you're just barometer on everything.

    Says the guy on a message board that takes time to open the thread, drop an F bomb and degrade someone that brings his opinion to an opinion based forum.

    Guess the OP should clear his posts with the chosen ones before expressing his opinion.

    Big whoop.

    K&G probably employs many ISU grads and fans.

    No malice, but not smart business. I will say that if I was running a large corporation, I would try not to be preferential or alienate anyone particularly in a state where college sports is unusually divisive.

    If it's a liquid, I throw it at the Hawk-cashier. I don't want to take any chances that they enjoy the proceeds of the failed purchase.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    And yet, you're basically telling everyone to not shop at Kum and Go because of it.


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

    You are making a business decision cause of a your fan hood. You wonder why the little brother comments are always around, ad its because of people like you. It's pathetic. Some people need to be able to separate themselves from sports and actual lives.

    And I am a barometer on everything, whatever I like, is what people should like. I'm kind of a big deal.

    Actually I said F, not ****. Good catch there. Oh I've hardly cared for this site with the constant stupidity going into threads here. It makes our fans look pathetic. It's honestly sad. I shared my opinion too!

    To piggyback on to what the OP said and let you know that you have chooses on where to follow Cyclone news. If you are above the "constant stupidity" that you so dislike on this site might I suggest leaving?
    And I'm sure "F" wasn't meant to imply ****?
