Never doubt the power of the people, especially if those people like to mix their politics with their groceries. One week after Roundy’s announced it would be removing the Shepherd Express from its Pick ’n Save stores—and one day after Shepherd publisher Louis Fortis likened Roundy’s to Netflix—it appears the local alt-weekly has come out on top. In a short piece entitled “Call to Action Update: The Shepherd Express Will Be in All Roundy’s Stores,” Fortis informs readers that the Shepherd isn’t going anywhere, thank you very much, and thanks the “well over 1,000 readers” who gave Roundy’s a piece of their progressive minds:
The Shepherd Express would like to thank the well over 1,000 readers who took the time to contact Roundy’s and ask that the Shepherd Express continue to be available in all Roundy’s stores. The Shepherd Express would also like to thank Roundy’s for being so responsive to their customers and returning the Shepherd to their stores. Going forward, the Shepherd will be available at all Roundy’s stores in the five-county Milwaukee metropolitan area, including the five Brookfield stores. Roundy’s, under the leadership of Chairman Bob, has always been a great corporate citizen, and we applaud this decision.
And with that contentious issue finally behind us, we now return to our regularly scheduled “Boris & Doris” column, already in progress.
