Macy’s has announced that it will stop selling fur by the end of fiscal 2020. This includes all Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s private brands, as well as items sold from brand partners. Fur will no longer be sold in Macy’s off-price stores, including Macy’s Backstage and Bloomingdale’s The Outlet. The company will be closing its fur vaults and salons.

“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, including direct feedback from our Go Green Employee Resource group, 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 across all Macy’s is the natural next step. We are proud to partner with the Humane Society of the United States in our commitment to ending the sale of fur. We remain committed to providing great fashion and value to our customers, and we will continue to offer high-quality and fashionable faux fur alternatives,” Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s said in a press release.

“We applaud Macy’s forward-thinking and principled decision to end the sale of fur by the end of fiscal 2020. This announcement is consistent with the views of countless consumers in the marketplace, and other retailers should follow. With so many designers, major cities and now a state taking a stand against the sale of fur, we’re that much closer to ending this unnecessary and inhumane practice,” Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States said.
