SEATTLE (AP) — Nordstrom said Thursday it will stop selling Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories.

The Seattle-based department store chain said the decision was based on the sales performance of the first daughter’s brand, The Seattle Times reported.

The move comes amid a weeks long campaign known as “Grab Your Wallet,” which has been calling for a boycott of retailers that carry Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump merchandise. In November, Nordstrom posted a response on Twitter to a shopper’s letter calling for the company to stop selling the brand, saying, “We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not.”

A Nordstrom spokesperson didn’t say whether the decision to stop buying the brand was permanent, only that they make buying decisions each season. Nordstrom also said it offers thousands of brands and cuts about 10 percent each year based performance.

The Ivanka Trump brand was no longer listed on the company’s website Thursday evening, and a search of her products on the site turned up just a few pairs of shoes, all of which had been marked down in price.

“I am absolutely thrilled, and I know the vast majority of Grab Your Wallet participants will be as well,” said Shannon Coulter, a co-founder of Grab Your Wallet.

Ivanka Trump’s independent lifestyle brand promotes her image as a successful working mother and partners with companies to make the branded blush pink dresses and trendy booties offered in multiple department stores.

Her business has also come under fire after she appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” wearing a nearly $11,000 gold bracelet from her jewelry line and someone from the company sent photos from the interview, seeking free publicity.

She said on Facebook in January she would take a formal leave of absence from her brand and from the Trump Organization but said she was confident both businesses would continue to thrive.

Nordstrom & Nordstrom Rack has locations in the Bay Area, including San Francisco, Emeryville, San Mateo and Walnut Creek.

    Nordstrom employees in San Jose had been stealing from customers.

    One of many strange happenings at the Nordstrom in San Jose…

    I got a call from Nordstrom’s that my pants had been in their hem shop for nearly a year. I went back through credit card statements and found that shortly after a valid purchase by me, there was another purchase for the pants.

    The employee who purchased those pants with my credit card must have gotten cold feat and not picked them up.

    And another time…

    I ordered several on sale shirts from Nordstrom. When they arrived in the mail the shirts looked like they where three years old, frayed edges and faded colors. When I returned them, they all but accused my of returning shirts that I had purchased years prior.

    All of these strange Nordstrom happenings had been around the time I had called the San Francisco Attorney General’s office to complain FBI and DEA agents had been stealing from me.

    Why was the DOJ harassing me? I had been writing software for the NSA. Not sure what I had done, but word to the wise, do not become involved in any government/military agencies or contracts. There are plenty of engineering jobs that you should not make the same mistake as I had.

    I soon suspected that some employees at Nordstrom in San Jose might have been moonlighting DOJ employees.
