Wal-Mart continues to sell and stock Paula Deen's branded cookware even though they ended their contract with her in July. Remember when Lisa Jackson had a lawsuit against Paula Deen for discrimination and for saying the N-word. During that time, Paula lost many of her contracts. Her food empire crumbled around her. Companies like QVC, Wal-Mart, and Food Network among many others immediately dropped her.
Apparently, Wal-Mart couldn’t just end its contract with the suppliers. They still have a supply of Paula’s products to sell. USA Today reports that On September 25, 2013, Danit Marquardt, a Wal-Mart spokesperson said that for the next three months the company needed to work through the stock. They will continue to offer Paula’s products until the end of the year. Some the Paula Deen brand items things, are now selling at clearance prices.
Upon looking through the Paula Deen merchandise listed at the Wal-Mart website, there are some new items listed for sale. Paula Deen’s website offers her cookware, food, and cookbooks with some at discounted prices. If you need Christmas ideas, this might help you to whittle down the gift list at a fraction of the cost.
