Business Insider-Boycotting Trump

Leave a comment

July 12, 2018 by Jan Stone

An anti-Trump movement is calling for the boycott of these 24 retailers. Here’s the latest from Business Insider:
  • More than two years into Trump’s presidency, the movement to boycott retailers that do business with the president’s family is going strong.
  • Retailers such as Nordstrom and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line as the movement to boycott gained momentum last year.
  • However, 24 companies — including Macy’s, Amazon, and TJ Maxx— still sell Trump-branded products.

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged.

Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line last year.

While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and activists.

In June, the shoe retailer DSW sent an email to a shopper that claimed it would end its partnership with Ivanka Trump shoes, Racked reported. The Ivanka Trump brand denied this.

While DSW has not yet confirmed that it has cut ties with Ivanka Trump and did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment, the store has just two pairs of discounted Ivanka Trump shoes on its website. This is down from 67 in January 2017, according to Racked.

As a result, Coulter has removed DSW from the boycott list.

Now, 24 retailers remain, spanning from huge names like Amazon and Macy’s to smaller companies like Wegmans and Filene’s Basement. Here’s the list:

Macy’s

While the chain banned Donald Trump’s menswear line in 2015 after the president referred to Mexican immigrants as “rapists,” it still sells Ivanka Trump’s lines of clothing, jewelry, and handbags.

Bloomingdale’s

The retailer sells Ivanka Trump’s lines of shoes and handbags.

Zappos

The shoe company carries Ivanka Trump shoes, clothing, and handbags.

Amazon and Whole Foods

The e-commerce giant carries both Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump merchandise, from the book “The Art of the Deal” to Ivanka Trump’s shoe line. Whole Foods was added to the boycott list after being acquired by Amazon in 2017.

For what it’s worth, some Trump supporters on Reddit have also called for a boycott of Amazon because CEO Jeff Bezos said he wants to send Trump to space. Bezos has also said the president “erodes our democracy around the edges.”

Hudson’s Bay

The Canadian department-store chain sells Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories.

Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Winners

The retailers, which are owned by the same parent company, sell Ivanka Trump clothing, shoes, and accessories.

However, TJ Maxx has recently wanted to avoid highlighting this fact. In 2017, the company instructed employees to throw away signs advertising the first daughter’s brand. The memo also told workers to mix Ivanka’s merchandise with other products, instead of showcasing the brand separately, The New York Times reported.

Lord & Taylor

The retailer sells Ivanka Trump clothing, jewelry, and handbags.

Bed Bath & Beyond and Buy Buy Baby

The Ivanka Trump diaper bags sold at Buy Buy Baby stores are currently out of stock online and in stores. However, a sales assistant confirmed to Business Insider that they are likely to get more in stock and have not confirmed that they will be pulling this product.

Perfumania

While Perfumania cut ties with the Trump family in July 2015, the company recently restocked its Donald Trump fragrances, like Empire by Trump and Success by Trump. It also carries Ivanka Trump’s perfume line.

Stein Mart

The upscale department store sells Ivanka Trump lines, including perfume and handbags in stores, but not online.
