Sears, Kmart Dump Trump Products From E-Stores

Sears Holdings has announced that they will be dumping over 30 Trump brands from their websites.

Sears also blamed poor sales for the removal of 31 Trump Home items from its lineup.

This weekend, there were numerous reports in major publications with the headline that Sears Holdings Corp (NASDAQ:SHLD) and Kmart have removed Trump products from our websites. It had been featured online and not in the brick-and-mortar stores.

Some of the Trump Home products included in the collection include furniture, bedding and lighting products.

Now it just needs USA president Donald Trump to respond with a Twitter attack-and the beleaguered U.S. retailer could hope for a bump in its share price.

Those keen on buying the products can, however, purchase the items from third-party vendors online.

It began when proponents of the #GrabYourWallet anti-Trump campaign claimed victory for inducing Nordstrom into dropping the Ivanka Trump collection.

The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday that sales of Ivanka Trump's fashion line fell 32% at Nordstrom in its latest fiscal year, "with the declines deepening in the run-up to the USA presidential election".

Eighties sitcom actor Scott Baio suggested Saturday that he and his wife - apparently big spenders at the department store - would boycott over its decision to yank Ivanka Trump's poorly selling brand.

A Nordstrom spokesperson told NBC News, "We haven't and won't be sharing specific sales results for this brand or any other".

Not every brand has removed the Ivanka Trump brand outright, but they are reevaluating their relationship with the line that bears the first daughter's name.

Last week, luxury retailers Nordstrom officially cut ties with Ivanka Trump's fashion brand, and her line of clothing and accessories also disappeared from Neiman Marcus' website. Separately, T.J. Maxx instructed stores to mix Ivanka Trump apparel into its racks rather than displaying it with branded signs.
