It's hard to separate Donald Trump's businesses from his politics. As a result, some are calling for a boycott of the president-elect's business empire and other companies that sell Trump products.

Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October following the publication of a leaked tape that showed Trump making lewd comments about women. Coulter used the hashtag to encourage people who were offended by Trump's language and actions to boycott companies doing business with his family.

Following Trump's election, she and other anti-Trump Twitter users have circulated a spreadsheet with retailers that do business with the Trump family. The spreadsheet includes information about how to contact each business.

This effort is probably doomed. Here is a list of the companies that would need to be boycotted:

6pm.com
Amazon.com
Bed Bath & Beyond
Belk.com (Southeastern Chain)
Bloomingdale's
Bluefly
Bon-Ton
Burlington Coat Factory
Carson's
Century 21 Dept. Store (NY, NJ, PA)
Dillards
DSW
Hudson Bay
HSN
Jet
Kushner Properties (Owner Jared Kushner led Trump's campaign)
Lord & Taylor
Macy’s
Marshalls
Nordstrom
Overstock.com
Perfumania
Scion Hotels
Saks Off Fifth
ShopStyle.com & ShopStyleUK
Stein Mart
TJ Maxx
Trump Golf Courses
Trump Hotels
Trump Winery
Winners
Zappos

#GrabYourWallet

This is pretty much the entire retail industry. The list of "approved" businesses is much shorter:

Home Depot
Washington Post
Pay Pal
Niketown (This last is being boycotted for other reasons.
)

You wouldn't think this would have much effect, but you never know:


On Saturday, Shoes.com announced on Twitter that it was removing Ivanka Trump shoes from its inventory. While the Canadian company valued at $320 million isn't as big as competitors like Zappos — which continues to sell Trump lines — this was the first time a retailer responded to the Grab Your Wallet movement by actually dropping Trump products.

@SoulSbia @paradexes @shannoncoulter We understand and your voices have been heard. We have removed the products from our website.

Actually, the "left" favors Gap and Mom-and-Pop stores. The "right" favors big box stores for the masses and Saks and Bloomingdale's for the elite.

Lol all the "right" has to do is the opposite and start purchasing more from these places.

What would they make Hillary do? That is so complicated, I don't see how he can't but liquidate to meet honesty standards. I don't believe boycott is the answer.

Double whammy for UK after the Brexit.

Crumbs, is this what the lib-turds have evolved to ?

Give them a colouring book, some crayons and stick them in a corner of a safe-room for life.

I am a life long democrat who voted the straight republican ticket for the first time in my life this year... I guess I just don't know what store I should shop in...Maybe I will just go with whatever appeals to me and not what some left or right label tells me to like.

Trump should have started placing his assets into a blind trust the moment he started his campaign. He will be facing more and more scrutiny of his affairs in the near future because he did not plan ahead.

By all means; exercise your free will while you still have a chance.

The irony is that the Republicans who can afford to shop at Bloomingdale's opposed Trump's candidacy; his "core supporters" can only afford to shop at WalMart. Maybe Ivanka can sell her linens there.

Pretty funny.

Shannon Coulter starts her boycott because of her offense to Trump's Access Hollywood tape. So in support of women everywhere, what does she do? She decides to throw another blameless woman under the bus with Trump.



I'm all for consumers speaking with their dollars. Here's her spreadsheet.

I guess the list was just too short without Ivanka. Besides, you know. Sins of the father and all....

If she defended her father's remarks, she is not blameless.

Where would one find that?

Because what she said in a statement to Fast Company was:

"My father's comments were clearly inappropriate and offensive, and I'm glad that he acknowledged this fact with an immediate apology to my family and the American people," Ivanka told Fast Company in a statement.

O well that is there right.

I doubt trump will miss there money.

I just counted the list of retailers in the spreadsheet....

24 of them are Ivanka retailers only;
3 retailers carry both Ivanka and Donald Trump items; and
5 retailers are Donald Trump only.

I guess a list of 5 companies wouldn't be impressive or useful enough for Shannon Coulter's burgeoning marketing business.



ETA: Oops. Scratch that about her burgeoning company DoubleKNown.com.

As I insinuated in the OP, it is little more than political theater, like the Republican governors who made a great show of refusing to take Federal money for Obama's stimulus plan. These same governors can't wait to take Federal money for Trump's stimulus plan.

That won't last ......Christmas is right around the corner.... I wonder how many of the boy otters will buy all their gifts at homedepot ??

Nah, sorry, sticking with Amazon for the holidays, kthx. I just replaced my worn out winter boots, bought a birthday gift, and the first 3 Christmas gifts from them.

If people want to bitch about Trump products, they can just not buy them, and then troll the Amazon product review section like normal. I'm sure it would be funnier than a regular boycott. Think on your feet, people!
