There has been a campaign to boycott stores that sell Ivanka’s clothing and accessories. Some stores have caved. Check out ClashDaily’s list of the stores that do and do not carry Ivanka’s line.
Well, it seems those rabid leftists have succeeded in bullying some stores into not carrying Ivanka’s line but others are firmly insistent that they will not be pushed into what they should and shouldn’t carry.
Customers want to purchase Ivanka’s clothing and accessories, and support the stores that still carry the line, so the #BuyIvanka hashtag was created.
President Trump even tweeted about it:
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2017
The New York Times reported that TJX Companies, the parent company for T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s sent out a note to the retailers regarding Ivanka’s products.
“Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into” the racks where most products hang, the note read. “All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded.”
The instruction was to eliminate special displays for the merchandise, “not to remove it from the sales floor,” said Doreen Thompson, a spokeswoman for the TJX Companies, the retailers’ parent corporation.
“We offer a rapidly changing selection of merchandise for our customers, and brands are featured based on a number of factors,” she said.
Ms. Thompson did not respond directly to questions about whether instructing stores to discard signs was unusual. But an employee at one of the company’s stores, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said she had not received such a request during her several years working there.
