Shannon Coulter, who started the #GrabYourWallet boycott of Trump branded companies, announced Friday morning on Twitter that Hudson Bay's website no longer listed products sold by the president's daughter, reported Business Insider.

"Hudson's Bay is phasing out this brand through the fall based on its performance", it said.

Six Ivanka Trump label products still appear on Saks Off 5th website, which is also owned by the Hudson's Bay Company - though all are clearance items up to 80 per cent off.

"There are suddenly zero Ivanka Trump items on the [Hudson's Bay] website".

The Canadian department-store mysteriously removed 150 Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories items from its website this week.

"As part of our regular course of business, we review our merchandise offerings and make appropriate changes", it said, without providing other details.

In February a year ago, the USA fashion chain Nordstrom said it had dropped Ivanka Trump´s line of shoes and clothing.

A source familiar with the matter said the retailer, which has long offered everything from Ivanka Trump shoes to clothing and jewelry, notified the brand of their decision in the fall of 2017.

The retail giant told CTV News it is dropping the brand due to "its performance".

Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus announced that they would no longer sell the first daughter's clothing and accessories past year. Still, a Trump spokesperson insisted the company caved to pressure from advocacy groups.

"This was absolutely not political.it was exclusively based on the performance of the brand", a Nordstrom spokesperson told Refinery29.

Also pertinent to HBC's decision is a recent Ipsos poll that showed that 70 per cent of Canadians said they would stop buying American-made products to protest Trump's trade war against the country.
