SHOPPERS: Stores DROP Ivanka’s Products Over Trump Win – Should They Be BOYCOTTED?

Stores are showing their true (blue) colors as they pull Ivanka’s products from shelves. Putting politics before profit, let’s see how that works out.

Disgruntled Liberals have started a campaign called #GrabYourWallet to boycott Trump-related products. Oddly, feminists are REALLY upset about Ivanka’s line of products and are demanding that they be pulled from store shelves.

A Marketing professional from the San Francisco Bay area, Shannon Coulter, came up with #GrabYourWallet boycott after the Access Hollywood video was released. She then targeted retailers that supported Trump:

Shoes.com, a Canadian online retailer, was the first to ‘dump Trump’ under the #GrabYourWallet boycott.

(Since when do we follow Canadians on anything?!?)

Retailers have begun ditching Ivanka’s brand under the growing pressure of the anti-Trump boycott…

…They have also called on the stores that carry the brand – including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s – to stop selling her items.

Retailers who refuse to dump the [Ivanka] brand, have also joined the list of boycotted companies.

And it seems the boycott is beginning to bite.

Last week, Shoes.com became the first firm to announce that it was removing Ivanka Trump products.
While the official reason given for dropping the brand was that, ‘they were not selling well,’ on Twitter Shoes.com responded to the #GrabYourWallet boycotters, saying that it had heard their voices.

‘We understand and your voices have been heard. We have removed the products from our website,’ Shoes.com tweeted on November 12.

‘We want to support our customers and make sure than can continue to stand tall.’

Interestingly, those tweets have since been deleted, but Ivanka’s line has not returned to Shoes.com.
Coulter also tweeted that furniture and interior store Bellacor had quietly removed all of its Trump products after the company was added to the boycott list…

…Since announcing his candidacy, Trump’s retail collaborations have reportedly suffered but Ivanka’s clothing line, which had a sales revenue exceeding 100million last year, is growing, according to Forbes.
At Fortune’s Most Powerful Women conference, Ivanka suggested evidence of brand decline surrounding her family’s business was unreliable.

‘We’re one of the fastest growing luxury hotel companies in the world,’ she said, according to Forbes.
She also insisted that she had ‘always tried to maintain complete separation between [my brand] and the campaign.’

But many have questioned that stance after Ivanka’s company sent a fashion alert ad about a $10,800 gold bracelet she wore during a ’60 Minutes’ interview about Trump’s presidential plans.

Critics questioned whether a news interview was the place to promote her brand and asked whether she was using her father’s political gains to further her own company…

…Many women also felt that they could no longer separate Ivanka from her father’s politics.
As Coulter explained in an interview with Cosmopolitan, ‘[women] were ready to give Ivanka a pass because she’s his [Trump’s] daughter and it’s hard to be objective about your dad.’

However, after the tape, women took particular offense ‘to the fact that Ivanka tries to make feminism a part of her brand but is standing by, as an official campaign surrogate, a guy who is an alleged serial sexual assaulter of women,’ according to Coulter.

‘The disconnect was too big. And they were ready to speak up about it and flex their consumer power about it,’ the San Francisco-based brand and digital strategist said.

Coulter says that the boycott has picked up steam since Trump’s surprise election win as many consumers seek a way to register their disappointment in the Republican’s victory.
The campaign is also targeting brands that have aligned themselves with Trump.

One seriously disgruntled voter sent an open letter to Nordstrom:

But then she TROLLS Nordstrom…

Cue the word ‘Nazi’ in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

And ‘white supremicist’:

Nordstrom replies:

Way to go, Nordstrom!

Aren’t feminists all about choice?

#MyClothingMyChoice

Aren’t Feminists supposed to support a woman with her own brand? Isn’t that how this works for feminists? You vote for and buy stuff from the people with the same body parts as you. That’s feminism. *cough* #ImWithHer *cough*

Or is she to be held accountable for the ‘sins’ of her father? You can’t blame a woman for the misogynistic action of a man in her life. *cough* #ImWithHer *cough*

Isn’t this just typical of the left?

They use bully tactics. They want to bully stores to remove products to comply with their worldview. A boycott is not to make stores do this:

But instead to starve a product of revenue. Not shunning the retailer itself for carrying the product. Don’t like Ivanka, ok. Don’t buy her products. Simple as that. Don’t force the retailers to remove items that you find offensive because of their tag.

Weren’t they against bullying?

We know all of YOU know how a boycott works…

So if these stores become pussified and bow to the demands of loony lefties, you can take your business elsewhere.

Shannon Coulter has made a handy-dandy list of companies to boycott under the #GrabYourWallet protest.

YOU can use it for a ‘companies to support’ list.
You’re welcome.

Share if you think that these Democrats don’t quite understand how a boycott works
