Chain of convenience stores ends promotion involving embattled Brewers slugger Ryan Braun

  • Updated: July 23, 2013 - 7:35 PM

MILWAUKEE — A chain of convenience stores is cutting ties with Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun in the wake of his season-ending suspension.

Gary Gonczy, director of marketing and advertising for Kwik Trip, Inc., says the company will no longer use Braun as a spokesman. He says in an email Tuesday that the company is ending a promotional contest where the winner got to have lunch with Braun at a Milwaukee restaurant.

Braun accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension Monday rather than fight Major League Baseball over evidence he used performance-enhancing drugs.

Kwik Trip is a chain of 300 convenience and Tobacco outlet stores that are found in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.
