Is Neiman Marcus Dropping Ivanka Trump Brand, Too?
The first daughter's products are no longer listed on the store's website.
Just yesterday, Nordstrom confirmed that the Ivanka Trump label will no longer be sold in its stores or website, and it looks like luxury retailer Neiman Marcus is following suit.
A quick scan of the department store website, which had previously stocked the brand's fine jewelry collection, reveals that Ivanka Trump products are no longer available for sale, and "Ivanka Trump" is no longer on Neiman Marcus' master list of brands.
When asked if the store stopped carrying the brand altogether, a spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter, "Neiman Marcus has a very small Ivanka Trump precious jewelry business which is comprised 100 percent of consigned merchandise (merchandise owned by the vendor). Based on productivity we continuously assess whether our brands are carried in stores, on our website, or both." The spokesperson did not clarify if the merchandise had been removed from all stores.
Racked reports that the change is a sudden one; Shannon Coulter, who founded the #GrabYourWallet movement urging shoppers to boycott all stores selling Trump products, told the site that as recently as this week, the store was still selling an Ivanka Trump brand bracelet for $12,000.
The president's eldest daughter got heat when her brand sent out a press release promoting a $10,800 bracelet she wore when the family appeared on 60 Minutes shortly after the election; she was also criticized after her brand encouraged people to "shop the look" from her appearance at the Republican National Convention over the summer.
Earlier this month, Trump stated that she was stepping away from her eponymous apparel and accessories company in order to comply with ethics regulations, however it was reported that as of yesterday, she had not yet filed the paperwork to resign. A representative from the Trump organization told ProPublica Thursday afternoon that the paperwork would be filed today.
