HBC pulls Ivanka Trump’s fashion line from website, to wind down sales

Hudson's Bay says it will stop carrying products from the Ivanka Trump brand.

In February previous year, the United States fashion chain Nordstrom said it had dropped Ivanka Trump's line of shoes and clothing.

At one point, the retailer had offered more than 350 items under the Ivanka Trump banner, everything from apparel, shoes and jewelry ranging in price from $25 up to nearly $14,000.

Hudson's Bay, the largest department store chain in Canada, has pulled Ivanka Trump's brand from its shelves, The New York Times reports.

"Hudson's Bay is phasing out this brand through the fall based on its performance", the company said in a statement to the Times. Stores in America have also dropped Trump from their list, including Nordstrom, whose decision to part ways with Ivanka in February 2017 earned angry replies from the president and his senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway.

U.S. charges Russian national with being a foreign agent
Alexander Torshin, the head of Russia's central bank, and Butima met with Donald Trump, Jr.at the NRA's 2016 convention. Prosecutors say the Russian official has since been sanctioned by the U.S.

Hudson's Bay shoppers can no longer find the brand on the company's website, and by the fall it will be completely gone from its 90 stores, the department store company confirmed to The Post.

While Ivanka Trump has resigned from her management roles at the company that bears her name, financial disclosures show that she made more than $5 million from it a year ago.

Asked whether other companies like Saks Fifth Avenue or Saks OFF 5th will follow suit, the spokesperson said "each banner makes decisions on its individual merchandise assortment based on brand performance".

The president's daughter no longer oversees the day-to-day operations of the company and is listed simply as the founder of the company on the website.

Hudson Bay's decision came after a poll showed 70 percent of Canadians say they will avoid buying USA -made products after Trump launched a trade war against the American ally and neighbor.
