Neiman Marcus piles on: The retail chain follows Nordstrom in dropping Ivanka's line

Just after Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump's fashion line due to sagging sales, high-end retailer Neiman Marcus also opted to stop sales of the first-daughter's jewelry consignment pieces citing "productivity" concerns.

A representative for the retailer released the following statement:

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 decision by Neiman Marcus was reportedly influenced by a tip from one of the organizers of a boycott of Trump's products called "Grab Your Wallet," according to fashion insider magazine "Racked":

Shannon Coulter, one of the women behind the #GrabYourWallet boycott, tipped Racked off to Nordstrom dropping the Ivanka Trump line yesterday, and noticed the jewelry was missing from Neiman’s site earlier this morning.

Coulter later said there are 21 products for sale earlier this week, including a $12,000 diamond bracelet. Those have all disappeared and "Ivanka Trump" is no longer a successful search term on the retailer's website. She has also been removed from the list of designers on Neiman Marcus’s master list.

"Grab Your Wallet" is a campaign started by two women who met online and shared a distaste for what they call the “Trump Tapes,” in which Trump made inappropriate remarks to reporter Billy Bush about grabbing women by the genitals. The site, launched in October 2016, is a spreadsheet of businesses the campaign boycotts.

They have been aggressively targeting businesses for the last few weeks that market and sell Ivanka and President Donald Trump merchandise, and are thought to be partially responsible for sales of those items falling enough for retailers to drop the lines.
