Nordstrom has been making headlines ever since the retailer officially dropped Ivanka Trump’s clothing line last week. The retailer initially said it dropped the clothing line after poor performance; though Ivanka’s brand initially disputed that announcement, several other retailers appeared to also have severed ties with the clothing and accessories line.
Then on Wednesday President Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure with the fallout, writing, “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom,” he tweeted. “She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”
But it seems his attack backfired. Nordstrom’s stock rose yesterday following his combative tweet, ending 4 percent higher by day’s end. And an army of celebrities dropped a huge chunk of change in support of Nordstrom’s decision (and their enthusiasm might just make you want to grab your credit cards too!).
Chelsea Handler ended her shopping spree with a photoshoot in front of the White House alongside her friends, one of whom is a gay man, the other Muslim, according to her caption.
Kristin Davis is supporting the store and her Sex and the City costar, Sarah Jessica Parker, by buying some goods from her line, SJP.
Rosie O’Donnell shared a snap of her purchase order, encouraging followers to “shop Nordstrom.”
Mia Farrow found herself “plugging” a store for the first time.
Beth Behrs thanked the store for “supporting love and kindness over racists.”
Aisha Tyler is supporting the movement #grabyourwallet, which boycotts retailers carrying Ivanka’s line by “dropping a giant pile of money” at Nordstrom.
SNL‘s Aidy Bryant confirmed her love of the store is just as strong as ever following the recent news, including her favorite feature of the department store — its paninis in the cafe.
Chelsea Peretti is just following her patriotic duty by having a shopping spree.
Actress Leslie Grossman added a trip to the mall to her to-do list yesterday.
Lucky for Judd Apatow, supporting Nordstrom comes at a great time — he’s in need of new pants!
And Patton Oswalt wrote that he is planning on having a very big shopping spree at Nordstrom today asking followers, “What’s a good song for a ‘trying on shirts’ montage?”
Meanwhile, Tyra Banks and Jessica Alba both had their brands, Tyra Beauty and The Honest Company, respectively, featured on the Trump-produced show, The New Celebrity Apprentice this season. But both have since released statements saying they won’t sponsor or work with the show again.
Recently many other retailers have followed Nordstrom’s lead, dropping Ivanka Trump items from its’ websites. Neiman Marcus, Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, HSN have all stopped selling Ivanka Trump items online (but have yet to make a comment on the matter). And yesterday it was reported that T.J. Maxx employees have been told to stop prominently displaying her merchandise.
