Well, this is distressing. Except for the fact that the majority of comments on this Yahoo article support Ivanka. Good news: This is typical with the anti-Trump stories I see on Yahoo.
I live in a small town in Oklahoma (with a population of less than 100,000 – much smaller than the suburb of Seattle I moved away from) and we have very few retailers in town. There’s a Target – which I will never visit. There’s a local mall that I visited only ONCE because the stores are terrible. My go-to store has been TJ Maxx. Alas, I may be visiting Goodwill and Ivanka Trump’s web site more and more…
From Yahoo: Backlash has boomed in the two weeks since President Trump took office, but his entrepreneur daughter is also feeling the burn, with numerous companies dropping — or facing pressure to pull — Ivanka Trump products.
The latest: TJ Maxx and Marshalls, along with the Home Shopping Network (HSN) and the search engine ShopStyle.
The parent company of TJ Maxx and Marshalls, TJX Companies, issued an internal memo to employees on Wednesday, telling them to toss Ivanka Trump display signs in the trash and mix her remaining merchandise in with other brands, rather than displaying her products on separate racks, according to The New York Times, who received a copy of the memo.
“Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into the runs [regular racks where most clothes are placed],” stated the note, which was confirmed by Doreen Thompson, a spokeswoman for the TJX Companies, according to The New York Times. “All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded.”
In addition, #GrabYourWallet founder Sharon Coulter confirmed on Tuesday that Ivanka- and Donald-branded products were completely pulled from HSN and that ShopStyle was in the process of following suit, according to Mic.
Both HSN and ShopStyle had been previously placed on the infamous #GrabYourWallet boycott list — an anti-Trump movement that launched in October after the president’s 2005 “Grab her by the p****” comments were publicized. The movement keeps tabs on companies that sell Trump-branded products and encourages people to boycott them, hitting their bottom lines as a political statement. Coulter predicted that by Tuesday, ShopStyle would be removed from the boycott list.
TJ Maxx, Marshalls, HSN, and ShopStyle are the latest on the hot list to separate from the Ivanka Trump dynasty.
