Major chain in Canada pulls Ivanka Trump’s clothing

The Ivanka Trump company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Canadian retain store Hudson's Bay just dropped Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessories line due to "performance". The line can no longer be found on the store's website and will be gradually phased out of stores in the coming months.

The move by Hudson's Bay - a chain that describes itself as "Canada's iconic department store" - comes after more than a year of consumer pressure, including demonstrations organised by a group calling themselves the "Peeved Beavers".

Nordstom's decision was announced amid a maelstrom of calls to boycott all stores and websites that carry the Ivanka Trump label and any other Trump brands.

It appears that Saks Off Fifth also may be phasing out the brand.

Hudson's Bay confirmed to Business Insider that it has removed all Ivanka Trump items from its website and will be "phasing out" remaining items in stores through the fall. "As part of our regular course of business, we review our merchandise offerings and make appropriate changes", the company said in an email to Global News.

Critically Endangered Black Rhinos Die After Transportation To Kenya National Park
Save the Rhinos estimates there are fewer than 5,500 black rhinos in the world, all of them in Africa. The translocation of the animals to Tsavo East National Park, was part of an effort to do that.

The decision to yank the controversial clothing line- there have been boycotts against the brand in the U.S. and in Canada for some time - was based on its "performance", Hudson's Bay said in a statement.

Shannon Coulter, who started #GrabYourWallet, seemed to feel encouraged by Hudson's Bay's choice.

Coulter has good reason to feel excited. According to The Hill, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus both announced they would no longer be selling the products at their stores.

Hudson's Bay's decision to drop these items is particularly pertinent given that it is a Canadian store and President Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are now locked in a trade dispute.
