Backlash is Fierce
Karma is a heck of a thing. Just when you think it’s safe to make a bad decision-BOOM! Nordstrom is getting a taste of their own medicine after their decision to drop Ivanka Trump fashions.
A “business decision” that also led to them dropping some of their customers too. Now, they are finding out that customers can make choices as well. And many of them are choosing to shop elsewhere.
Cutting Up Their Cards
Consumers across the nation aren’t buying that Nordstrom’s decision wasn’t political. According to Breitbart, industry insiders have said that Nordstrom “intentionally misled the public” about the reason for their decision:
“This is a classic example of a retailer making a decision based on their fear of standing up to political pressure – even on a limited scale. It was clear from their actions since last fall that Nordstrom would prefer to sell out to loud liberal groups who weren’t even regular Nordstrom consumers, just to avoid controversy.”
This has no doubt infuriated Ivanka supporters…
To convey their anger, they are cutting up their cards, returning purchases, and refusing to shop there ever again.
The comments on Nordstrom’s Facebook also allude to the frustration many consumers are feeling:
“I am puzzled over your decision to drop Ivanka Trumps’ line of clothing. It is alarming how many people and businesses are wanting President Trump to fail”
Another commenter said:
“I don’t believe for one second that you dropped the Ivanka line because it didn’t sell.”
Employees from Nordstrom towed the “company line” in their responses to the commenters. Seems they are finding out the shoe isn’t so comfortable on the other foot.
