Now that Donald Trump has won the White House, critical Americans are doubling down on their efforts to hit Trump where it might hurt most: his bank accounts. 

Following emergence of a 2005 Access Hollywood tape in which Trump, now the president-elect, boasted about kissing and groping women with impunity and said he could freely “grab them by the pussy,” activist Shannon Coulter urged women to boycott stores that sell daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing line

The number of companies on the #GrabYourWallet boycott list has grown to more than 45. Coulter’s list now includes retailers like Amazon, Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s, among dozens of others.

Main #GrabYouWallet boycott list:

  • Amazon 
  • Belabor 
  • Bloomingdale’s 
  •  Bluefly 
  •  Bon-Ton 
  • Bed Bath & Beyond 
  • Burlington Coat Factory 
  • Carson’s 
  •  Century 21 
  •  Dillards 
  • DSW 
  • Hudson Bay 
  • HSN 
  • Jet 
  • Lord & Taylor 
  • Macy’s 
  •  Marshalls 
  • Neiman Marcus 
  • Nordstrom 
  • Perfumania 
  • Scion Hotels 
  • Saks Off Fifth 
  • Stein Mart 
  • TJ Maxx 
  • Trump Golf Courses 
  • Trump Hotels 
  • Trump Winery 
  •  Wayfair 
  • Zappos 

These companies are listed as “companies to consider boycotting”:

  • ABC Supply 
  • Hobby Lobby 
  • Jenny Craig 
  • Kushner Properties 
  • MillerCoors 
  • New Balance 
  • National Enquirer 
  • People Magazine 
  • Uline 
  • Yuengling Beer
  • A separate Trump-boycott effort, the DJT Resistance (TDJTR), also calls out brands whose leaders backed Trump in the 2016 election. While some of the brands overlap with Coulter’s list, she believes some of these suggestions are misguided. For example, Home Depot and PayPal appear in Coulter’s boycott-considered column and on TDJTR’s list—it’s not clear who made it—but she and those supporting the #GrabYourWallet campaign are not boycotting these companies at this time.
