PETA Does it Again! Macy’s Finally Ends All Fur Sales

Published by Zachary Toliver.

Decades of PETA protests aimed at one of America’s largest department store have led to a monumental victory for animals who are mutilated and killed for fashion: Macy’s has gone fur-free!

Macy’s Inc. has just announced that its ending its sale of fur by the end of 2020. This move will include all of Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s private brands and items sold by partners, and the company will be closing its Fur Vaults and salons.

PETA’s campaign urging Macy’s to go fur-free started back in the 1980s—when we made it our prime target for Fur-Free Friday and activists were arrested for blocking the doors at its Herald Square store in New York and for disrupting its Thanksgiving Day Parade. In recent years, PETA supporters urging Macy’s to drop fur have taken hundreds of thousands of actions.

A group of “fur-bearing animals” led PETA supporters in a protest outside Macy’s annual meeting in Cincinnati, urging the company to get with the times and stop selling fur.

PETA members never gave up, and now we’re toasting the store’s decision to go fur-free.

If you’ve ever taken a stance against the filthy, horrifying fur industry, then you’re a part of this victory.

Businesses, states, and even entire countries are banning fur—because people are taking action against an industry that beats, gasses, electrocutes, and skins animals alive for something as superficial as fashion.

This excellent news also means Canada Goose will no longer be able sell its fur-trimmed jackets at Macy’s or Bloomingdales. Help PETA secure another victory against the deadly fur industry—demand that Canada Goose stop using the stolen fur of coyotes who were caught in painful steel traps and violently killed!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
