Marshalls And TJ Maxx Literally Dump Ivanka’s Line

The New York Times reports:

Last week, employees at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls got very clear instructions about where to put signs for Ivanka Trump products: in the garbage. The TJX Companies, the retailers’ parent company, told employees not to display Ivanka Trump merchandise separately and to throw away Ivanka Trump signs, according to a note to employees on Wednesday, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times.

“Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into the runs,” the note read. “Runs” refers to the normal clothing racks where the majority of products hang. “All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded.” A spokeswoman for the TJX Companies, Doreen Thompson, confirmed that the message had been sent to stores.

“The communication was intended to instruct stores to mix this line of merchandise into our racks, not to remove it from the sales floor,” Ms. Thompson wrote in an email. “We offer a rapidly changing selection of merchandise for our customers, and brands are featured based on a number of factors.”

While the move happened last week, it’s rather amusing that it comes to light today in the midst of the Nordstrom furor.

  • DreadPikathulhu

    Retail poison. Expect the same for Trump branded buildings as his popularity plummets. Maybe they can find some red state meth labs to put his name on?

    • Tulle Christensen

      Yea but he can always get government agencies to rent space, like the pentagon

      • MBear

        So…all trump properties will be a combination of his residences and the “staff” (including security).

        Yeah…that paints an innnnnteresting image.

    • Jeffrey

      My cousin lives in the UWS Trump Place has been fighting about removing the name from building since Pussygate. She’s convinced it’s a target now. I think they succeeded in having the floor mats switched out to generic black ones lol

      • DreadPikathulhu

        I’d be worried about my safety if I lived in a building with his name on it. It’s probably not good for property values, either.

        • Jeffrey

          Nice view of the river, that’s all I can say about it.

        • TampaDink

          I’m worried for our safety, living in a country with Hair Furor “in charge”.

      • ByronK

        I thought some residences in NYC did that not long ago.

        • Jeffrey

          Yes around the end of the year. Before the election, even. Supposedly the hotels were going to be rebranded as well.

    • MBear

      I thought red states WERE Trump Branded Meth Labs…?

      • Christopher

        Speaking as a resident of St.Louis, that describes the rural areas quite well.

        Here in STL we cater to all sorts of drugs and anti-social activities:

        The one that seems to be the most popular at the moment is “Smash and Grab”. Insurance companies love this. Shoe stores seem to be the favourite target at the moment. If shoes aren’t your thing don’t worry this comes in all varieties.

        But if you’re not up for those shenanigans, the resulting whiplash is hell on the neck and spine, may I suggest “Mall Shooter”, oh wait, it appears that one is out of stock at the moment. Maybe I can interest you in “Gun Violence”? That one never seems to sell out. Very popular with the younger crowd. Also popular with this crowd is “Unwanted Pregnancy”. I’m telling you they just can’t get enough of that one! It’s the hip thing I hear.

        The middle-aged crowd seem to be into “Breaking and Entering”. Big hit in the suburbs. Same with “Hit & Run” and “Purse Snatching”.

        The older crowd seem to be content with “Drunk and Disorderly” and “Domestic Abuse”. You know, the old stand bys. However over the years that has trickled down to the younger generations.

        If you’re interested in any of these all you have to do is move here. Many of them will be provided whether you want them or not, and for a nominal fee.

        No need to act now as supplies are always replenished in a timely manner. 😉

  • Gustav2

    Retailers do not do this to be mean, they know what is selling. Those bar codes matter, and they get a daily report. They probably figured they might move more merch if they didn’t point out it was Ivanka’s line.

    • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

      You’re exactly right. This is strictly a sales strategy.

            Don’t worry about the sleet and rain…the items are already water-stained with the tears of countless Ethiopian Sweatshop Orphans.

    d) shot into space for aliens to enjoy,
    WTF is it? Part of the new Trump outreach space program.

    • BlindBill

      How ironic – the shoe factory that makes her product moved from China to Ethiopia to take advantage of cheaper labor (5 Ethiopian workers replaced each Chinese worker) ….. now the cheapest labor on the planet may be wearing p45 family branded products via charity bins from the USA..

          That cheap stuff already comes with holes in it for the eyes.

    One “factor” being that the trump brand is increasingly toxic. Mix them “into the runs,” where if they don’t sell, they’ll be sold by the pound for the fiber. Gotta love the free market!

    This really hurts Melania’s claim that she was going to make zillions of dollars as First Whore, when the real First Whore can’t even budge the brand.

    • CB

      But but but…she made SO MUCH MONEY from a 71-year-old blogger. Come to think of it, to her anything more than $20 on the dresser might be “substantial.”

    • Realspear

      Of course. The brand was dying months ago and is only go to lose more value. Once he’s not president, the hotels will probably empty out.

      • Ray Taylor

        The hotels will be demolished being made out of inferior concrete and flammable materials not to code.

          • kelven

            We had one kitty that made us call that area “the hand trap” because he would roll on his back with the come hither look, and as soon as you went to rub his belly, the front claws would grab your hand and the back claws would rake your forearm. His name was T-rex and our nickname for him was The Brat Prince.

          • vorpal

            Lower.

        • JR

          I have a weird cat, I guess. The “nope” spot makes him fall over on his back and beg for belly rubs.

          • Treant

            Mine did, too. He really didn’t have a “nope” spot.

            This cat also came running when the vacuum cleaner started. He’d insist that I put the round brush end on the tool hose and vacuum him with it. This could consume ten minutes easily.

          • JR

            My son’s malamute was like that.

          • vorpal

            That sounds strangely reminiscent of some of my stories with my dad’s shop vac as a teenager…

            Oh, do tell. Did you name the vac?

          • vorpal

            No, but in retrospect, that thing could apply a lot of pressure and was for special occasions only with a recovery time between uses.

          • Treant

            Oh, AND you have an unpeeled banana. Life is just not fair.

            I do indeed!
            If you like the banana, you should come do whatever you want to the pair of rambutans. I’m like a regular tropical adventure.

            My various geographical features have remained uncharted for too long. I have some photographic brochures available on special request to attempt to entice interested tourists.

          • Treant

            They’re as spiky as rambutans? 🙂

          • vorpal

            LOL I try to keep them neatly trimmed and presentable and ready for consumption, or even a little tenderizing loving care :-).

            Like with rambutans, when properly used, they can squirt juices everywhere and make quite a mess. You are also free to make them to be left to ripen further until a time of your choosing, though, if that interests you.

            Really, I defer to expertise.

        “’Secularism has sapped the strength of the Judeo-Christian West to defend its ideals,’ he argued at the Vatican conference.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Sadly, this is pretty much low season for “luxury” hotels, so any data would be misleading. However, come the spring, it will be interesting to see bookings. I suspect after 3-5 months of Trump, we’ll definitely get a better picture of just how far the Trump brand has dropped.

    Marshalls: We had to discard the entire Ivanka Trump line. Every single garment, blouse, dress, shoe and handbag was infested with fat, engorged bed bugs.

      Were they trying to sell it in the rural Midwest?

    • Lazycrockett

      Rural America voted for him. May as well use his image to promote their drug of choice.

      • Gustav2

        like minds.

    • Stev84

      I doubt there is anything he doesn’t want his name on. It’s really his main business

      But he loves our sweaty testicles – from 1939:

        The image of Tramp with anything penis related can certainly convert me to a dick hater

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Is Blumenthal implying that Gorsuch might be a trojan horse for the Republicans?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Poor thing, how ever will she eat or afford shelter?

  • Do Something Nice

    As long as they still sell her crap in Big Lots.

    • CatCope

      I would bet Big Lots would boycott the Trumpford family.

  • bkmn

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha,,,

  • Lazycrockett

    wrong tweet.

  • Paula

    Face it, Donnie, we’re just not that into you or your spawn.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Couldn’t happen to a member of a more fascist family.

  • Donnie’s worst nightmare: His own family name becoming a liability. Not entirely unlike all the Hitlers who changed their names after WW2…

    • Jukesgrrl

      Yes, he used to brag that his name was his most valuable asset.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    ‘This… stuff’? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don’t know… that red miniskirt, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too whitely to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that minskirt is not just red, it’s not scarlet. It’s not vermillion. It’s actually Make-America-Great-Again red. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2016, Ivanka Trump did a collection of Make-America-Great-Again red gowns. And then I think it was TJ Maxx… wasn’t it who dumped everything with Trump name on it? I think we need a jacket here. And then Make America Great Again red quickly showed up in the clearance racks in front of eight different gas stations. And then it, uh, filtered down through the garments abandoned in alleys behind 7-Elevens and then trickled on down into some tragic Trump rally where you, no doubt, fished it out of some Trump souvenir stand. However, that red represents millions of tweets and countless pussy grabs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re
    wearing the red skirt that was selected for you by the moneygrubbers in this White House from a pile of stuff.

    • houstonray

      You freakin win the internets today! Love it!

    • Tor

      Awesome!!! (((applauds)))

  • ByronK

    Horrible to see something like this happen to such a “great person”!

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Simply ghastly!

  • Paula

    Maybe she can get a distribution deal with Dollar General, Family Dollar, and MacFrugals.

  • TheManicMechanic

    Put it in with the cheapest looking junk available. Sweet revenge!

    • Friday

      ^The other cheapest junk available, you mean? 🙂

      • TheManicMechanic

        Well, cheap as in quality, but it’s overpriced cheap stuff.

        • Friday

          Most is these days. That’s why I don’t shop new, more than any politics, occasionally invest in something good. Marking up the same crap on the tacky Trump name never made sense *before* it became equated with hatred, bigotry and stupidity and corruption in office. 🙂

          • TheManicMechanic

            Clothing and shoes don’t last anywhere like they used to. Even cheaper brands from 20 years ago would hold up. I’m stuck buying what are basically workman’s clothing in order to get something that will last for more than a year or two.

          • Friday

            Yeah, talk to the *gal* mechanic about that. Used to be I didn’t have to *look* like a stereotype about it. 🙂

          • TheManicMechanic

            How true. As if I don’t have to perpetuate a “bear” stereotype wearing Carhartts and flannel or forever in t-shirts and jeans (like today, it’s in the upper 60s all day in the middle of winter and I’m outside taking full advantage). 🙂

            At least Duluth Trading Company gets it.

  • Dagoril

    Hey Ivanka, have you considered partnering with Walmart and Hobby Lobby? 😉

    • Lars Littlefield

      All those Hobby Lobby exclusive Ivanka Trump Bedazzle kits. Now they’ll never be able to sell them!

      • Tor

        Whatever became of vagazzling? Asking for a friend.

        • Lars Littlefield

          To vagazle? Was that something to do with packets of glitter and elmer glue for sparkling up one’s vajayjay hair?

      • What is that? I imagine it would be like fancy five dollar paper toilet seat cover sold at Trump Hotel Lobby Bathrooms for Ladies — you can never be sure which Russian Hooker carrying what disease just seated herself on a bowl and if you, like Ivanka, want to stay disease- free you buy a bedazzle kit wipe seat cover. Hey, its an idea.

  • Friday

    Sounds like some family that politicized their ‘lifestyle brand name’ of foreign-made goods has leaned on a couple too many retail chains lately.

    • coram nobis

      They’re still leaning on them. Sean Spicymeatballs said that Nordstrom’s dropping the line is “a direct attack on the President.”

      http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/ivanka-trump-nordstrom-line

      Hey, this was supposed to be a fascist state, not a fashionista one.

      • Tor

        I don’t think they’re that spicy. The meatballs.

      • -M-

        Oh, Sean. If he had his assets in a blind trust this wouldn’t affect him at all. 😏😊

        • coram nobis

          The blind trust would have to be at least as far out as the 82 Eridani system, or maybe Rigel IV, for it to be truly blind to his glitter.

  • olandp

    If Marshalls and TJ Maxx sell her crap, it is no wonder that the better stores won’t. Look what happened to Halston after he signed his JC Penny deal.

    • Ginger Snap

      Halston one of the best designers to ever live.

  • Henry Auvil

    Maybe she can still ink a deal with KMart before they both declare Chapter 11.

    • Stubenville

      Better hurry.

  • Pip

    These decisions are based on sales numbers. Can’t get pissy about her line being removed if they aren’t making the stores money. It’s that simple.

    • Tor

      She’s a liability now.

  • coram nobis

    In other fashion news, the Trump WH has a draft memo that would lift a ban on “conflict minerals” imported from the Congo and adjoining countries. Presumably that includes gold, but wouldn’t diamonds and other precious stones also count?

    https://theintercept.com/2017/02/08/leaked-memo-trump-conflict-minerals/

    I’m asking because both Ivanka and Melania may be selling jewelry, along with “apparel, accessories, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, hair care, skin care and fragrance” that Melania’s Daily Mail lawsuit claims she’d be profiting from.

    — The blood of African miners? You’re soaking in it.
    — Gee, Madge, no wonder my nails are so red!

    • Tor

      Evil POS. Them. Not you.

    • thatotherjean

      Sure—carbon is a mineral, and so is corundum. Ivanka is certainly selling jewelry, though I don’t know about Melania. Presidency for profit!

    • Halou

      Pat Robertson said a few nice things and is now being allowed to set up his infamous mining operations again?

      People are likely going to be dying as a result of this. Not that Trump cares about that sort of thing, he had a Navy SEAL and all those Yemeni civilians killed in a botched raid because tweeting shit is more important than listening to intelligence officials.

  • JDS
  • D. J.

    A bit different than usual, but looks like somebody’s dropping a house on her “fashion” house.

  • Ginger Snap

    If your product sucks and your personal image makes it poision retailers will drop your shit so fast you’ll get whiplash. Retail is ruthless.

  • Halou

    Trump was the one who politicized his businesses when he failed / refused to divest from them, so not buying Ivanka’s cheaply produced-expensively sold trash is an act of political dissent. People would perhaps start buying it again only AFTER the first elected King of America divests and separates his business.from his politics.

  • Someone should buy her crap at a clearance sale and donate it to homeless people to wear at rallies outside of Trump properties, much like someone did with Abercrombie & Fitch clothes a while ago when they were caught only promoting and hiring the “right” looking people, “the types in high school who everyone wanted to be like” (seriously). https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/47fbe416932fa5e7a300eddfa6a870ed94f38b3908304f33759d400e2181d43e.jpg

  • Doesn’t anyone feel bad for Ivanka? How is she going to keep face if it is only her husband, “Hot Lips” Jared Kushner, who is the sole breadwinner for the family? Hey, it’s the era of female liberation and in families like the Kushner/Trumps its the ladies of the house who are expected to provide income too. What is Ivanka supposed to do, just sit around, look pretty, and raise the kids as her husband puts in an honest day or work? How boring a concept! (note: sarcasm alert!) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/29555d60b185139a4457429d38e4a8f9af3fa34acbe90eb84e182f6de290cd66.jpg

    Daddy dearest’s mouth is hurting the entire trump brand. Sales started falling more than 18 months ago when the volcano started spewing orange lava.
