Bed Bath & Beyond Is the Latest Retailer to Drop Trump Products

The Hollywood Reporter ^ | March 31, 2017 | Sam Reed 

If you're looking for a Trump Home chandelier, Bed Bath & Beyond is no longer the store for you.
According to an email exchange between the retailer's customer service department and Shannon Coulter, founder of the #GrabYourWallet boycott movement, Bed Bath & Beyond is "no longer carrying Trump merchandise."
The store had previously stocked Ivanka Trump products and Trump Home chandeliers (by ELK Lighting) on its website, as well as Ivanka Trump diaper bags on its sister company Buy Baby Buy's website. According to Coulter, Ivanka's products were removed from both earlier this month. A recent search for Trump Home goods on Bed Bath & Beyond's website showed that the pieces were "out of stock."
Bed Bath & Beyond did not immediately return The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment on the matter.

The home goods store is the latest to be swept up in the Trump drama. Nordstrom captured the attention of the president earlier this year when the department store announced that it would no longer carry Ivanka's apparel and accessories label due to poor sales. Neiman Marcus briefly dropped Ivanka's products before restocking her fine jewelry collection.
The Trump Home collection is still stocked at Amazon and Overstock.com, however, according to Coulter's tracking, Wayfair.com, Sears and Kmart have all stopped carrying the home products.
