Miami, Oct (SF).- Less than two weeks after California became the first state to ban the the sale of new fur products, retail giant Macy’s, Inc. announced in a Monday press release it will stop selling fur by the end of the 2020 fiscal year. The company said its customer base is “migrating away from natural fur” and Macy’s is following the trend.
Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s will stop selling the animal product by the end of the 2020 fiscal year, including its “off-price” stores” — Macy’s Backstage and Bloomingdale’s The Outlet. The decision also includes all Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s private brands, including products sold from its brand partners.
The company will shutter its Fur Vaults and salons — which offered storage, repairs and restyling of furs, among other services.
As part of this commitment, the chain, which in 2018 registered profits of $ 25 billion, will close all its stores for the storage of these skins in Macy’s and Bloomingdales.
