Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s to go fur free by the end of 2020
Retail giant Macy’s Inc., which owns department stores Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, will go fur free by the end of next year.
Areas of both stores dedicated to fur will be permanently closed.
The group owns 900 stores across the U.S.
Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc. said:
“Over the past two years, we have been closely following consumer and brand trends, listening to our customers, and researching alternatives to fur.
“We’ve listened to our colleagues…and we have met regularly on this topic with the Humane Society of the United States and other NGOs.
“Macy’s private brands are already fur free, so expanding this practice to across all Macy’s, Inc. is the natural next step.”
