Shame on Nordstorms. Nordstrom says the items were not profitable. Time to go to Dillards at Baybrook Mall. So sad that we get a President that actually works and people are attacking his family. It was reported at CNN that Neiman Marcus was following Nordstorms but I found out that they are still carrying her jewelry in three locations. CNN Headlines: Neiman Marcus following Nordstroms on Ivanka Trump items. So crazy that people just read headlines and that is their only research.
We all know that performance was not the case. I have seen other shoes in Nordstroms and Trump shoes are sometimes nicer than designer shoes at a lower price. I have also noticed that her shoes were placed in a prime location. I have also ordered online because a size was sold out. More business for other stores now.
Also dropped by other companies for not performing. Last week, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus both announced that they would no longer be selling Ivanka Trump's clothing line. Now, four more stores--Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, and Home Shopping Network--are dropping it as well, citing "lagging sales."
I'd bet the farm it had very little to do with politics. I was in women's retail for over 10 years and gave input to the buyers as to what was moving and what was not. Most buyers buy almost a year in advance. Next Fall is being decided very soon. This Spring's line was bought late last summer. Lines are dropped and added quickly. So the buyers probably have decided to no buy the upcoming Fall line( or perhaps they decided last summer to not buy this year's Spring line. They will let inventory sell out. They are in business to make money. If the line was selling they wouldn't drop it JUST to make a political statement.
Boycott away- sounds like the line is a bomb as other retailers are dropping it
Dear Leader's tweet might force a lawsuit that would force release of his tax returns to determine his ownership in the clothing line. That would be evidence used to convict him in his trial after he is impeached.
Dear Leader is tweeting about his "poor" daughter not making money, while Syrian children sit in refugee camps in harms way because he thinks they're a threat to our safety. He fusses about Nordstrom's while banning Iraqi translators who helped us fight terrorists. What a selfish stupid d*ck.
I saw her line on markdown at Nordstroms before this ever became a story. Her clothing looks like inferior knockoffs and to me it would be more suited for a store like Kohls.
I was shopping for children's clothing at Nordstroms as well and all of the Kardashion Kids line was on deep discount too. The sales lady told me that the label did not appeal to the average shopper and had actually been a deterrent to sales. I think these celebrity brands are not attracting the more upscale shopper as may have been expected.
Maybe it depends on the level of the celebrity but reality celebs like Kardashions and Trumps just don't hold the same level of classic brand association as an established designer brand would have.
But it doesn't matter. People are free to buy what they want and if the brand or label has a negative associated with it, that is not something to have a twitter rant about. That is the game of retail.
Call me old - or old fashioned - but that is very close to using the bully pulpit of office for commercial reasons.?
You hit it on the nose. It's right there for a violation of a code of federal regulations 5 C.F.R. ? 2635.702
"An employee may not use his public office for his own private gain or for that of persons or organizations with which he is associated personally. An employee's position or title should not be used to coerce; to endorse any product, service or enterprise; or to give the appearance of governmental sanction. An employee may use his official title and stationery only in response to a request for a reference or recommendation for someone he has dealt with in Federal employment or someone he is recommending for Federal employment."
Conway, Trump et al have to realize they aren't outsiders anymore. They ARE the system and as such must use tax dollars appropriately. We just paid for a federal government employee to use her office to promote the private financial dealings of her boss's daughter. Sean Spicer did the same thing on the clock with our funds.
