Nordstrom No Longer Carries Ivanka Trump Brand Merchandise
Following the election, some netizens called for a boycott against Trump-affiliated retailers, including Macy's and Amazon.
One store affected by the boycott was Seattle based department store chain, Nordstrom.
Although the company once stocked Ivanka Trump brand merchandise in stores and on the Nordstrom website, according to a company spokesperson, that business relationship has come to an end.
The New York Times reports:
The department store chain said on Thursday that it had decided to put the brakes on its relationship with Ms. Trump and removed her brand from a list on its site. “We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance,” Nordstrom said in a statement. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season,” referring to the spring.
A spokesman for the brand disputed Nordstrom’s assertion that it had not bought clothes for the coming season.
The move comes amid an effort by what is called the #GrabYourWallet campaign to encourage shoppers to boycott products with ties to President Trump, his family and his donors.
In November, Nordstrom defended its decision to sell Ms. Trump’s products. “We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position,” the company wrote on Twitter on Nov. 2. “We’re not.”
