Earlier today, we reported that both Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus had announced that they would no longer be selling Ivanka Trump’s clothing line following pressure from liberals to drop her brand. Now, yet another store has announced they will be dropping Ivanka’s brand.
Alabama Local News reported that the department store Belk just became the latest retail outlet to drop Ivanka’s line. Her clothing and accessories were removed from the Charlotte, North Carolina-based store’s website over the weekend.
Belk has around 300 stores in 16 states, and it had previously carried numerous pieces of Ivanka’s line. However, they appear to have buckled to liberals who are calling on all retailers to drop Ivanka’s line as a way of protesting Donald Trump.
Belk has not yet commented on dropping Ivanka’s brand from their stores.
This came a week after Nordstrom executives sent a letter to their employees condemning President Trump’s immigration ban. The letter went out just two days before they officially dropped Ivanka’s line.
“We literally have thousands of employees who are first and second generation immigrants. Every one of your unique qualities brings a richness that allows us to better reflect and serve the multi-cultured communities we’re a part of and ultimately makes us a better company,” the email read. “We are a better place with you here, no doubt about it.”
“It’s important that we reiterate our values to all of you and make it clear that we support each of our employees,” the letter continued. “We will continue to value diversity, inclusion, respect, and you can count on that.”
Each store that has dropped Ivanka’s line claims to have done so due to declining sales, but it’s clear that they’re really just afraid of liberals continuing to boycott their stores as long as they sell Ivanka’s clothing.
