Nordstrom quietly announced its decision to drop Ivanka Trump’s clothing line from its stores on Thursday. The news came on the heels of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick’s announcement that he would leave President Trump’s economic advisory council.
Shannon Coulter, one of the co-founders of the #GrabYourWallet campaign to boycott Trump family businesses, rejoiced at the news.
One customer reached out privately to Nordstrom via Twitter to verify the news and received this response.
Some customers have critiqued the store for targeting Ivanka Trump’s brand. Nordstrom, however, insists the decision was not political and was based solely on poor sales performance.
Some have cited the unusual timing, but Nordstrom has responded that the choice was business as usual.
The company also points out that there has been no public announcement. Rather, it has responded to questions from individual customers as well as the media.
Whatever the store’s motivation for pulling the line, weak sales performance may in itself be an indicator that the boycott tactics are in fact effective.
Boycotters are continuing to take aim at retailers that still carry Trump products.
Such as Macy’s.
And retail giant Amazon.
Only time—and new executive orders—will tell if others will suddenly abandon Trump brands, too.
