As a child growing up in Charlotte, NC virtually ALL of my clothing - as a toddler, through teen years and beyond came from Belk. Then, as a parent of four children, our entire family has shopped at Belk for years; thus, I have invested in (and trusted) the Belk brand for quality and value for decades. However, I am astonished at Belk's decision to discontinue products associated with Ivanka Trump. As a male, I would still be a buyer of such products for the women in my life - should I so choose. However, THAT is precisely the issue - choice. The consumer has a vote - a vote to shop with whatever retailer he or she chooses. If I choose NOT to purchase any product, for political reasons or otherwise, THAT is also a right. Whether I supported (or voted for) Donald Trump is irrelevant. The implication of this policy move by Belk is deeply troubling and without justification. Therefore, unless and until Belk (or any other retailer) ends its ludicrous attempt at political correctness, I will not shop with them - and, I have encouraged all of my family to follow suit. Respectfully, please think this policy through and reverse your corporate decision...
