Nordstrom dumped Ivanka Trump's product line earlier this month, and that's not sitting well with a group of women believed to be from Chandler, Ariz. In what the Arizona Republic deems a "collision of retail and politics," a one-minute video that originally appeared on one of the women's Facebook pages shows what a YouTube summary describes as a "female posse," including a couple wearing "Haters Gonna Hate" Donald Trump shirts, heading into a Nordstrom department store, with a few of them proclaiming to the camera, "No money for Nordstroms [sic]!" as they head up the escalator to the nearest customer service desk. "We will shop where Ivanka shops," another notes.
Once at the Nordstrom counter, they tell the service rep they're closing their credit card accounts and that the cash-payers within their group won't be spending their money at the store anymore. One of the ladies is given a phone to further explain (to likely another customer service rep) why they're pulling out as customers, and the woman explains she used to work for Nordstrom and has been shopping there for 30 years, but the store's decision to drop Ivanka's brand sealed the deal. So where will these #NeverNordstrom consumers shop now? Dillard's, a couple of them tell the camera. The video on Laurie Ray's page has been viewed more than 1.1 million times.
