Ever since Macy’s severed ties with Donald Trump and attacked him as a racist, their company has been imploding.
Trump said all like-minded patriots should boycott the company on July 1st, 2015.
Those who believe in tight border security, stopping illegal immigration & SMART trade deals w/other countries should boycott @Macys.

The stock peaked just around three weeks later, then went on to lose half its value.
From Fox Business:
Macy’s Inc. (M) outlined restructuring plans Wednesday that will eliminate more than 10,000 jobs at the struggling department store giant as it closes about 63 stores this spring and looks to cut additional costs.
The retailer said it would eliminate about 3,900 jobs with the store closings, which are part of a plan announced last summer that will close about 100 of Macy’s 730 locations. It also will eliminate about 6,200 other positions as part of an effort to streamline operations and reduce expenses so it can invest more in its digital operations.
“We are closing locations that are unproductive or are no longer robust shopping destinations due to changes in the local retail shopping landscape, as well as monetizing locations with highly valued real estate,” CEO Terry Lundgren said.
The Trump Curse is real.
