The American department store group will stop selling products containing animal fur on its Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman stores and websites by early 2023, it announced on June 30.
This means shutting down the group’s fur salons; Neiman Marcus operates 21, while Bergdorf’s has one.
Covid-19 sent demand for the already-struggling fur category down a steep decline, according to the trade group International Fur Federation. Neiman Marcus joins a growing slate of US brands and retailers going fur free. Just last week, outerwear brand Canada Goose announced it would phase out fur. In recent years, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue have also gone fur free.
