My wife wishes we had the money to shop at Nordstrom but unfortunately we are more of TJ Maxx and Marshal shoppers.

Since 45 did not carry the popular vote and many of his prior supporters are no longer in his camp, I think things should wash out in favor of those businesses that do not carry trump family lines. Just a numbers idea.

Sorry Nordstrom, TJ Max, and Starbucks.. You lost me and my friends because you seem to think you are higher and mightier and don't support individuals rights to buy and sell what they want, but simply because you stuck your nose in politics inside of fashion. And PS I am not a die hard Walmart shopper. I will continue to shop at places that do not hang below political signs like- hobby lobby, chick-fi la, wayfair, bath and body, outback steaks house

Just called Nordstrom's and cancelled my credit card. They won't be getting my business anymore. Shame on you Nordstrom's. You are a retailer not a politician. Hope your business plunders!

Although the image is specific to Nordstrom, the article is an interesting look at how consumers have attempted to use their purchasing power to support, or (more often) not support, companies they disagrees with, and how companies are figuring out how to deal with it. Most people commenting don't appear to have actually read the article and are instead using the headline and the image to throw shade at each other.

Nordstroms is a city store....usually is highly educated and highly paid people live. When you look at voting maps the republicans are usually in areas outside the cities. Nordstrom closed where I live because it was too far outside Atlanta and didn't have the customer base. Let the people who don't shop there anyway boycott, lol. And the few people who do live in the city and boycott Nordstrom, glad other businesses will benefit from your shopping. You're a drop in the bucket.

Let's be honest, the majority of Trump voters aren't shopping at Nordstrom for a few reasons 1) They can't afford it 2) There aren't a lot of Nordstrom stores around the country to begin with 3) For individuals who prefer luxury department store shopping enough that it would matter if they did boycott, they aren't going to stop shopping there because there simply aren't that many other stores to choose from. Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus dumped her. That leaves Barneys, Saks, and a couple others. All of which have limited store locations. And they aren't going to start going to Sears or JCPenney.

Nordstrom's- After they announced they would no longer carry the Ivanka brand. I shopped on line & spent some money at Nordstrom's. My sons know we will not be buying under Armour anymore. Number 45 has made a non political person, political. Toomey can thank #45 that he's in his last senate term. Because I plan to make sure he's not re-elected. She persisted.

This is not new! A lot of us won't buy brands that are made in China, or Indonesia, or Mexico or other countries that employ children and adults as slave labor. No one seems to get upset when people boycott products made in Israel. Those who want to by Ivankas line can always shop on Trumps website for home and clothing products and other"stuff" which is a real hoot!

They don't care about people boycotting now because those people are not the majority. All these companies severing ties with Trump or putting out ads aimed at the anti Trump crowd prove that the majority of people don't want Trump. Polls may be unreliable but market forces don't lie.

We are steady Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack customers. You can not beat the customer service and return policy. However - when shopping at a sporting goods store for valentines gift for hubby I did avoid Under Armor in favor of Nike.

Only in a Trump world would a company be bullied into a poor business decision that financially helped the Trumps. Ivanka's clothes are garbage. They're on the clearance rack in TJMaxx, practically free, and still unwanted. There's no crying in retail.

This is not free market economy. In a free market only product competitors and their marketing teams vie for position with sellers. When the so-called president steps in he becomes part of the production/marketing team. Absolute conflict of interest. Add it to the list.

Keep politics out of shopping. They opened they mouths, trying to be political and hip. Now this backlash. Stupid move Nordstrom, you should have used a little more discretion. Announcing to world your political views, takes the fun out of shopping. Reap and sow.

Remember a good deal of highly educated, white women, with money voted for he who shall not be named. If you truly want to continue to show support for companies that stand up to a dangerous administration, then shop at the places that aren't supporting him. FYI- I saw far more Drumpf/Pence stickers in the Trader Joe's parking lot than I did in the Target parking lot.

Pretty sad when Americans boycott their own hardworking and successful people because of dirty politics and hateful vengeance. It's a very dysfunctional country now thanks to the tolerant and progressive movement with their temper tantrums for not getting their way because their own peeps left them down and someone else outsmarted them.

Think about it this way: Start with 100 people: 58% voted (58 people). 48% voted for Hillary (28 people) and 46.7% (27 people) voted for Trump. The other 4.5% (2.6 people) voted for independents, so let's split those in two and give 1.3 to each side (being generous to Trump). Now we have 29.3 people that hate Trump and 28.3 who like him. 42% of eligible voters (42 people out of 100) didn't vote. So let's split those people in half and give 21 to each side (being generous again). Hillary 50.3 to Trump 49.3. Since we know that the percentage of people who shop as Nordstrom is maybe the top 25% of the population (just a guess), that puts you at 12.3 people out of 100 that shop at Nordstom, and voted for or like Trump. This is the problem. It's not political - plenty of Republicans shop at Nordstorm; it's just business. Oh, and women, who are the shoppers for Trump merchandise, voted 54% for Hillary to 42% for Trump. So my numbers are probably off by another 5%!

Have any studies shown whether recent boycotts of retailers and restaurants have significantly affected revenues? Just curious. I live in Vermont, a state without a Target, Nordstroms or Chik-fi-Le and I've read about the boycotts of these businesses with curiosity. I would think that a truly conscientious consumer would need to look beyond a single issue when deciding where to spend their money.

I personally don't like the trend of making shopping a public political act. (Kills my shopping experience to the point of becoming a nonconsmer) Many American workers are negativley impacted by boycotts, hence weakening our economy. Purchasing is a personal choice. If you don't support a product line, don't buy it. Make your own choice and let the free marketplace determine the degree of demand. It's like the process of natural selection.

I shopped at Nordstrom the day after Trump's tweet and the store was as busy as ever. People love Nordstrom because of their fantastic customer service and Trumputin's fit over Ivanka's crappy merchandise isn't going to change that. Their stock price has gone up since his tweet.
