A plethora of organizations including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Shoes.com have dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line.
Ivanka Trump is suffering at the hands of numerous retailers who are dropping her clothing line. Most recently the TJX Companies, the parent company of Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, told its location to discard all of the promotional signs/display stands for Ivanka-branded merchandise and stock the items on the racks with everything else in the store. Here’s the text of the memo:
Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise
from features and mix into the runs. All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded.
Doreen Thompson, a spokeswoman for TJX, issued this statement to the New York Times confirming that the memo was legitimate:
The communication was intended to instruct stores to mix this line
of merchandise into our racks, not to remove it from the sales floor. We offer a rapidly changing selection of merchandise
for our customers, and brands are featured based on a number of factors.
She wouldn’t say if this was out of the ordinary, though an employee with several years’ worth of experience told the Times that it was the first time they had ever heard of anything like this happening.
Here is a list so far of companies that have dropped Ivanka’s line.
- Neiman Marcus
President Trump criticized Nordstrom Inc. on Wednesday, tweeting that the department store chain that decided to stop selling his daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessories line has treated her “so unfairly.”
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!
