"As part of the company's initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items", spokesman Brian Hanover said in a statement.
Now, some on social media are speculating the announcement to drop Trump Home items could spell doom for the retail giants.
The list of companies dropping products that carry the Trump name grew this weekend, with two major US retailers announcing that they're no longer selling Trump Home items online.
Business Insider reports that the retailers are dropping the Trump Home products from their stores and replacing them with more "profitable items". A $942 Trump Home mirror is being sold for $628. Of course, the news that Nordstrom wouldn't be restocking the line after current stock sells out made the biggest splash, if only because both President Trump and Kellyanne Conway complained about the move on Twitter and Fox & Friends, relatively speaking.
Coulter has been tracking which retailers do business with the Trump family on the Grab Your Wallet website since October.
Nordstrom, for instance, said the company's decision was based on the products' performance, not politics.
Last week, luxury retailers Nordstrom officially cut ties with Ivanka Trump's fashion brand, and her line of clothing and accessories also disappeared from Neiman Marcus' website. "We've had a great relationship with the Ivanka Trump team".

The Wall Street Journal reporting Nordstrom sales of Ivanka products fell by almost a-third in the past fiscal year, with sharp drops in sales weeks BEFORE the election.
"Go buy Ivanka's stuff is what I would tell you", Conway said, adding, "I'm going to give a free commercial here". The New York Times reports that T. J. Maxx and Marshalls sent a note to their employees telling them to throw away signs for Ivanka Trump products.
