Last week, Donald Trump became personally outraged over Nordstrom dropping Ivanka Trump‘s clothing line — so we can only imagine how pissed he’s gonna be now that retailers are discontinuing HIS shitty consumer products!
It’s been reported that U.S. department stores Sears and Kmart are discontinuing online sales of 31 Trump Home items.
Sears and its wholly owned subsidiary revealed their decision on Saturday, saying it was part of a push to focus their online business on the most profitable items — and these days, the Trump name is only hot in a Google news alert.
That seemed to be the case with Nordstrom as well, as new details emerged showing sales of Ivanka’s brand took a sharp nosedive in the weeks before the retailer stopped carrying her products.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Nordstrom sales of Ivanka-branded clothes and shoes dropped more than 70 percent in the second, third, and fourth weeks of October compared with the same weeks the year before.
Following the discontinuation of Ivanka’s line last week, Nordstrom said sales had “steadily declined to the point where it didn’t make good business sense” to keep selling the products.
As for Sears, the decision is more based on trimming away its unprofitable products, as the retailer announced plans to close 150 stores last month.
Spokesperson Brian Hanover said in a statement:
“As part of the company’s initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items. Amid that streamlining effort, 31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week.”
Sounds like a capitalistic move Donny would totally support — if it didn’t negatively impact his business, in which case he’ll probably call it a direct attack on his policies!
Hanover added that Trump’s rejected items can be found through a third-party vendor — which we assume is Sean Spicer‘s aggressively managed eBay account.
How do YOU think the President will react to this real news?
