Women film themselves closing Nordstrom accounts in protest over Ivanka Trump
A group of women on the Internet are mad at Nordstrom for dropping Ivanka Trump’s clothing brand.
In a now-viral video posted by Laurie Ray, several women are seen to be entering the Nordstrom Chandler Fashion Center in Chandler, Arizona, but they aren’t going to be shopping there.
“No money for Nordstroms!” they declare in the minute-long video, explaining that they are boycotting the store because Nordstrom “caved” to pressure to drop Ivanka Trump’s brand.
One woman in sunglasses goes to the customer service desk to hand the clerk her Nordstrom card and say that she would like to close her account, despite the fact that, she claims, she has been shopping there for over 30 years and was even a Nordstrom employee before.
“I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom for 30 years,” she says. “Because of your decision to drop Ivanka Trump, I will no longer shop at your store, nor will my husband, or our nine children, or our eight grandchildren.”
“We’re going to Dillard’s!” another woman in the video declares.
After the video went viral, Ray posted online claiming that she had not posted the video for attention, writing, “If you think we could spend our time in better ways, we agree! We do a lot of service in our community, sadly you are judging us on a 59 second video. 1minute does not an entire life make. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! #standforsomething #hatersgonnahate.”
