Macy's Popularity Plummets for Failing to Dump the Trump Collection

##snip##

"Remember that so-called 'birther' issue from the presidential campaign? Remember all that press coverage of Donald Trump demanding that Barack Obama turn over his birth certificate - then doubting that the one the president did turn over was authentic? Remember the national sigh of relief when the whole issue just went away? Well, it hasn't. At least not for Macy's."

10. the CEO (?) wants to cut SS, Medicare, Medicaid

He was out banging on the austerity drum before Thanksgiving. I would guess that has as much to do with their public relations as the Trump thing.

2. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy

From the same article: "According to figures just released by YouGov BrandIndex, Macy’s loyalty rating among female consumers tumbled 45 percent—hardly tidings of comfort and joy as the holiday shopping season moves into high gear. Having enjoyed a score of 31 back in November, Macy’s is now slumming in the 17 range. Just for the sake of comparison, J.C. Penney’s score is 38. Ouch. The dip owes itself to The Donald—specifically, Macy’s refusal to pull the Trump Signature Collection from store shelves."

IMHO, Macy's has really taken a dive. Their merchandise is pricy and the store coupons sent out don't count for much of it. But this Trump line (remember the pink ties on the Leno show made in China?) is too much.

4. I still haven't forgiven Macy's for taking over Marshall Field's

I have no 'love' (or loyalty) for Macy's b/c of that alone.

The Trump thing just keeps piling on the negative feelings for me.

My 2 cents.

7. Damn straight.

 

My friend only goes in the store now to use the bathroom.

Marshall Field's was an icon and they came in without an ounce of respect.

I blame Terry Lundgron who's a total douche.

He's been one of the CEO's trying to lobby congress to gut earned benefits so he can enjoy a tax break.

5. I have no use for Macy's since they took over the May Company

and Famous Barr Stores. That said, there are many working class people employed by this firm and I believe they should be considered.

6. Excellent News.. last seen .."trump items were 20% off"..

There’s no telling if the nation’s No. 2 retailer is surprised by the popularity plummet, but it shouldn’t be. In November, protestors massed outside Macy’s Herald Square flagship, demanding that the store discontinue Trump’s signature line of pink power ties and French-cuffed dress shirts (just the thing to wear to your next leveraged buyout). The demonstrators, some of whom made a show of taking scissors to their Macy’s credit cards, claimed that Trump’s bleating over Obama’s birth certificate constituted racism—a claim that Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen vigorously denied. “The man doesn’t have a racist bone in his body,” Cohen told The Huffington Post.


What the f*** did trump think he was doing raging and whining about Pres Obama's Birth Certificate then? Of course he knew that it was a bullhorn to the brainwashed racist pigs of America.
