Macy's, Inc. has agreed to stop selling fur in its Macy's and Bloomingdale's stores by the end of the 2020 fiscal year, according to a press release from the Humane Society of the United States Monday.
What they're saying: "We have been closely following consumer and brand trends, listening to our customers and researching alternatives to fur," Jeff Gennette, chairman and CEO of Macy’s, Inc., said in a statement. "We’ve listened to our colleagues. ... Macy’s private brands are already fur free so expanding this practice across all Macy’s, Inc. is the natural next step."
Per Bloomberg, Macy's joins a number of other apparel and fashion companies that have taken steps to end fur sales, including:
- Calvin Klein
- Jimmy Choo
- Kate Spade
- Ralph Lauren
