Trump Products Are Reportedly No Longer Sold At Bed Bath & Beyond

On Friday, Coulter tweeted out a screenshot of an email from the retailer saying that it stopped selling Trump products. Coulter forwarded the email, which was sent on March 29 by a #GrabYourWallet participant, to The Huffington Post. The Huffington Post has reached out to the retailer as well.
“I’m not surprised to see major retailers continuing to drop the highly politicized Trump brand,” Coulter told The Huffington Post.“One of the companies on the #GrabYourWallet list recently reached out to me and said that it’s received over 500,000 complaints from boycott participants. We applaud Bed Bath & Beyond on this decision and look forward to returning as customers.” 

Coulter told HuffPost that Bed Bath & Beyond’s decision marks the 24th company to drop Trump products since she started the movement. She also updated the Grab Your Wallet spreadsheet with the news: 
“On March 12th Ivanka’s diaper bags disappeared from the Bed Bath & Beyond site at the same time they disappeared from the site of its web-only subsidiary, Buy Buy Baby. Buy Buy Baby was subsequently removed from the #GrabYourWallet list on 3/29 but Bed Bath & Beyond remained because two Trump Home lighting products by ELK Lighting were still coming up in web site searches. ELK customer service reps had confirmed to me and other #GrabYourWallet participants that it is still in a licensing relationship w/ the Trump family. On 3/31, a #GrabYourWallet participant forwarded a customer service email exchange in which Bed Bath & Beyond confirmed to her that it’s no longer carrying Trump products. As of 3/31/17 only one of those two ELK lighting items is still coming up in a search of the Bed Bath & Beyond site and it’s listed as ‘out of stock.’”
