Neiman Marcus: Ban the Bloody Fur Trade!
Two of the world’s largest retailers have pledged to go fur-free, less than a month after California passed the first-ever statewide ban on fur sales! Now that Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s have acknowledged the bloody cruelty of the fur industry, we must step up the pressure and call on Neiman Marcus to stop lining the pockets of animal abusers and switch to animal-friendly apparel. Act now for fur-bearing animals, urge Neiman Marcus to go faux!
Neiman Marcus is an American chain of luxury department stores that has offered designer apparel since 1901. Its parent group also owns Bergdorf Goodman department stores. Currently, Neiman Marcus Group, Inc. department stores sell the furry skins stolen from chinchillas, foxes, minks, and rabbits in-store and on their websites. However, they also offer a variety of faux fur items which provide the same look and feel as animal fur, without the cruelty.
We are at a turning point in history. Together, we have sparked a revolution for the countless animals who suffer and die on fur farms. Caring people like you refuse to support senseless cruelty for “fashion.” The demand for animal-friendly fur alternatives, and surge in pro-faux designers and retailers, signals that the unimaginably cruel fur industry will soon be a thing of the past with your continued action for animals.
To produce a trivial fur trim, jacket, or accessory, fur-bearing animals are confined in cages, deprived of space, socialization, and everything wild animals need to thrive.
The animals are gassed or internally electrocuted through anal or vaginal electrocution to ensure there is no damage to their fur.
In response to increasing demand and refusal by consumers to support the barbaric fur industry, designers and retailers are committing to forego fur, including Burberry, Chanel, Coach, Fendi, Gucci, Prada, Versace, Jimmy Choo, and H&M. Now, direct competitors of Neiman Marcus—Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s—are set to capitalize on this paradigm shift within the fashion industry by pledging to go fur-free.
We asked Neiman Marcus when it plans to phase out fur like so many of its competitors, and were given this astonishing response:
“Neiman Marcus does not endorse the wearing of fur, aside from simply making it available to those customers who choose to purchase it.”
Neiman Marcus’ response is disappointing and disingenuous. By showcasing the pelts of hundreds of thousands of animals in their “fur salons” nationwide, Neiman Marcus clearly promotes the wearing of fur and the cruelty involved in its production.
What YOU Can Do:
With the overwhelming demand for faux, and top retailers and designers phasing out fur, there is no reason to continue to offer furs that have been ripped from the bodies of innocent animals. Please act now to urge Neiman Marcus to take a firm stance against the fur industry by eliminating the sale of all animal fur products.

You can politely say;
“California has banned fur, and many designers and retailers including Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, have pledged to go fur-free to meet consumer demand. You say that you do not endorse fur, yet you pay suppliers to torture and kill foxes, chinchillas, minks, and rabbits. I will encourage all my family and friends to never shop at Neiman Marcus until you take a firm stance against the cruel and unnecessary fur industry by eliminating animal fur from all Neiman Marcus Group store locations and online stores.”
