Retailers are dying so what do they do?
They decide to insult 62,000,000 voters.
Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Macy*s? No more business from me and no doubt millions of others will decide the same thing.
Macy’s Pressured to Drop Ivanka Trump Brand [Business Insider] (thanks to Katherine P)
Last week, Nordstrom announced it would be dropping the Ivanka Trump brand from its stores starting in fall 2017, citing flagging sales. One day later, all traces of Ivanka Trump jewelry disappeared from the Neiman Marcus website, and the retailer said that it would be carrying the label only in a handful of stores based on consignment. Now, Macy’s is being pressured to follow suit. The department store’s social media feeds are flooded with comments from customers and #GrabYourWallet boycotters asking Macy’s to drop Ivanka Trump shoes and clothing. According to Business Insider‘s sources, pressure is coming from inside the company as well, with corporate employees reportedly feeling uneasy about marketing the Ivanka Trump brand following the election. Currently, almost all of the 74 products listed for sale are marked down.
