2 More Retailers Remove Trump-Brand Products Due to Poor Sales
Retailers around the country are dropping Trump-brand products from their stores in what appears to be a growing national trend.
Sears Holding and their subsidiary K-mart will no longer carry 31 items from the Trump Home collection; including furniture for the front room and bedrooms, as well as lamps, chandeliers and other items.
A spokesman for Sears said that this decision was made “amid a streamlining effort” and that the company “constantly refine[s] that assortment to focus on our most profitable items.”
In other words, Trump-brand products are not selling and therefore Sears and K-mart cannot afford to lose money by continuing to carry those items.
To recoup losses, 14 Trump-brand products are available online via Sears and K-mart on discount.
These 2 retailers join several others that have decided to dump Trump products. Earlier this month Norstrom, Neiman Marcus and Belk removed Ivanka Trump’s collection of clothing and accessories from their shelves for the same reason – no one was buying them.
Belk stated publicly that they “pay close attention to feedback from” their customers and due to poor performance, they made the adjustment “as part of our normal course of business operations.”
Nordstrom explained in a statement : “Over the past year, and particularly in the last half of 2016, sales of the brand have steadily declined to the point where it didn’t make good business sense for us to continue with the line for now.”
Donald Trump blasted Nordstrom on Twitter, defending his daughter, and sparking questions of conflicts of interest.
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!

In addition, Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, took to Fox News to perform a promotional commercial for Ivanka, sounding more like a host on QVC than a civil servant.
Conway told the media that she had been “counseled” the day following her endorsement; completely ignoring the fact that she had violated ethics laws that prohibit an employee of the government from promoting a product.
Congressman Elijah Cummings sent a letter to the Office of Government Ethics, asking for their recommendations on Conway. Cummings cited that the counselor to the president should “receive a stronger disciplinary response, including suspension, demotion or dismissal.”
