BURLINGTON, N.J. — Ivanka Trump products have disappeared from the website of Burlington Coat Factory, a South Jersey-based retailer facing calls for a boycott from critics of President Donald Trump.
But an online boycott campaign, #grabyourwallet, said it will continue to target the Burlington Township-based firm.
“Burlington Coat Factory has removed all Trump brand goods from its site but has made no public statement about brick-and-mortar locations, so it too remains on the (boycott) list,” the campaign said in a statement at its website.
A search of the retailer’s website resulted in the message, “We were unable to find results for ‘Ivanka Trump.'”
A representative of the chain’s parent company, Burlington Stores, did not respond to requests for comment.
But customers had plenty to say on the company’s Facebook page, which on Monday night had more than 40 posts about the issue.
Most were sharply critical of Burlington Coat Factory, contending the retailer had acted for political reasons and predicting dire consequences.
“This Deplorable will never shop in your store again,” wrote Doug Burdette, whose Facebook page identifies him as an Aberdeen, Maryland, resident. “I just wish the $400 plus I spent there for Christmas could be returned. Ivanka Trump is a good person.”
“Won’t be shopping at Burlington again,” wrote Theresa Fowler of Fort Worth, Texas. “Love Ivanka. Too bad you cast your lot in with the unbalanced liberals.”
