The president’s eldest daughter pulled in around $5 million from her merchandising apparel brand in one year. After the president put her in the office next to his in the White House, she gave up managing her company’s “day-to-day operations,” The Washington Post reported.
Now, one of Canada’s largest department stores has said it will stop carrying her clothing, shoes, and accessories. Hudson’s Bay Co. yanked all of Ivanka’s items off of its website. It released a statement saying that it will no longer sell her products in its “90 bricks-and-mortar stores.”
The company also owns Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor stores. Saks does not carry her items, but Lord & Taylor does.
In a statement, a company spokesperson wrote that Hudson’s Bay Co. based its decision to pull Ivanka’s merchandise due to its “performance:”
‘As part of our regular course of business, we review our merchandise offerings and make appropriate changes.’
Other major stores, such as Nieman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Marshalls have cut way back on Ivanka’s items. Since her father became the 45th president, her brand had taken a real beating.
Carolyn Handley has been an Ivanka Trump apparel fan. She was married in Ivanka’s shoes, but threw away about two dozen Ivanka items in a personal boycott after Donald Trump became president. She told CNN:
‘It was all about not wanting to put my dollars behind a brand that was a part of such a distasteful campaign.’
Another women spent $3,000 on Ivanka’s apparel every year. Yet, that is over:
‘I felt really, really helpless, I felt really, really sad. It feels like the only way to have any kind of impact on this family is just to pull financial support.’
The Grab Your Wallet campaign has boycotted the first daughter’s retail merchandise and other Trump family businesses. The name was a take-off on The Donald’s comment that he enjoyed grabbing women “by the pussy.”
