After a fundraiser was held by one of the resort's owners, Patagonia, an outdoor clothing and gear company, has decided not to sell its products to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
According to the Washington Post, the resort is a popular Wyoming tourist destination. It also serves as Patagonia's largest single customer.
A fundraiser was held on August 5, featuring Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Rep. Jim Jordan (R.Ga.), and Mark Meadows (ex-White House chief of staff). The minimum admission for each couple is $2,000 Jay Kemmerer, co-owner of the resort, hosted the event at Spring Creek Ranch in Jackson.
WyoFile reports that some residents of the area protested the event, calling for a boycott.
Patagonia announced Tuesday that it will no longer supply merchandise for the resort's retail shops. Corley Kenna from Patagonia's communications and policy department told the Post that the decision to close the resort was based on a mismatch in values.
Patagonia is well-known for its environmental activism. Green, Jordan, Meadows, and others have a history supporting Donald Trump's false election fraud claims.
Kenna stated in a statement to The Post, "Those who know us in Jackson Hole know that we make business decisions as well as build relationships that align with our values and advocacy efforts."
She continued, "We join the local community who is using its voice to protest," "We will continue using our business to advocate policies to protect the planet, support healthy communities, and strengthen democracy."
