I’m still convinced this is about bowing to the militant feminist Grab Your Wallet campaign. (The campaign basically encourages feminists to boycott stores that do business with the Trump family, because they’re the epitome of evil.) The Grab Your Wallet feminists aren’t satisfied yet. Leftists are currently pressuring Macy’s to drop Ivanka’s line too.

While Macy’s hasn’t released any kind of official statement, it appears the company is beginning to cave.
One customer claimed she was told by a customer service representative that the company is in the process of dropping Ivanka’s apparel and shoe lines. Macy’s didn’t immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
The pressure seems to be coming from inside the company as well. According to an internal source at Macy’s, some corporate employees are uncomfortable with their roles selling and marketing Ivanka Trump’s brand following the election of Donald Trump.
“Hopefully they stop,” an internal Macy’s source told Business Insider, referencing the company’s declining sales. “They can’t lose any more money than they already are.”
Another red flag? Most of the products from Ivanka’s line are discounted. See for yourself.
Yeeeeeeah. Something’s definitely going on here. I smell feminism. It reeks.
Update: Now Belk?!
