Why Are We Boycotting Kohl’s and Bed Bath & Beyond?

We began boycotting Kohl’s in September 2020 when they began selling Black Lives Matter shirts in their stores. Now, Bed Bath & Beyond has joined the list of businesses we will not patronize because of their left wing political stance.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said in Jan. 18 that he was informed his products will no longer be carried in Kohl’s or Bed Bath & Beyond.

“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping MyPillow. Just got off the phone not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places,” Lindell told Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN).

Trump and Lindell

Lindell was a major sponsor for RSBN’s live coverage of President Donald J. Trump’s January 6, 2021 at the White House Ellipse on the South Lawn before 250,000 Patriotic Americans.

While mainstream media were quick to blame President Trump and his supporters, WITHOUT EVIDENCE, for the storming of the U.S. Capitol that began taking place before his speech ended, RSBN remained fair and truthful during their broadcasting.

Bed Bath & Beyond told The Epoch Times via email: “We are continually improving our product assortment, which includes plans to offer an array of unique and exclusive Owned Brands from Spring 2021. As previously announced, we have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands. This includes the MyPillow product line. Our decisions are data-driven, customer-inspired and are delivering substantial growth in our key destination categories.”

One of the BLM co-founders, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, explained the foundation of the movement, inspired by her and co-founders Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, in an interview in 2015.

September 2020
Despite what Kohl’s said, ‘BlackLivesMatter’ were on their shirts.

“We actually do have an ideological frame,” she said “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.”

The BLM website reveals their goals include “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”  Another mission statement refers to its members as “comrades” a common moniker used by communists.

We purchased two pillows from My Pillow last year and both enjoy them. Although we have shopped several times a year at Kohl’s and Bed Bath & Beyond, they have lost our business.

Right now MyPillow is offering some great discounts:

  1. I have shopped at Kohl’s for years. But now, with BLM mechandise and they dropping of My Pillow, they have shown their cancel culture side. Funny thing about cancel culture is…that it works both ways. I will not shop at Kohl’s anymore. Go sell your stuff to the left leaning socialists, communists, and Nazi’s.

  2. Never cared for either store and haven’t shopped them in a decade. The new woke movement will go after anyone that is conservative or a Christian. So where do we go from this day forward? Letters are not the answer, nor are phone calls; there is no one there to read them or to listen. Our elected officials in DC turned and ran, leaving us to fend for ourselves, which shows that they are and have been in it for the money and a career. This is a sad and dangerous day for our America.

  3. Thanks. I’ve only shopped at Kohl’s when I have a 30% off coupon and the hub and/or I are low on underdogs. Now I’ll buy them elsewhere. Have plenty of pillows but maybe I’ll buy one anyway…

  4. It’s a very depressing day. Can’t bear to watch any tv with Inauguration.
    A list of other stores, websites, businesses that are censoring or supporting any non American values would be greatly appreciated. I went into Bed Bath yesterday for the first time in ages. Bought nothing & won’t go back now. I have never purchased anything from Kohl’s. Going to cancel Amazon prime. Next phone will not be Apple. I have a My Pillow body pillow. Love it.
    Thank you for your great emails.

  5. It’s a very sad day indeed. They don’t want unity, they want revenge.
    So, when they boycott, WE BUYCOTT! So, let’s flood “My Pillow” and Mike Lindell with our purchases and show our support. I’m buying two “My Pillow”s. Who’s with me! Ahhh! The power of purchase! God bless you all!

      • HEB is a big outfit, so it will make no difference to them if a few customers complain. I am surprised that they made this move considering they are a Texas store and at least here in Granbury, most of the population is conservative. Last check, Walmart still had the My Pillow on display, but I don’t shop them.

      • I called an old friend there. He said in some low performing areas, they elected to discontinue them. In high performing stores, it makes sense to keep selling them, especially at some of the HEB-PLUS stores.

        What few know is that HEB continuously tailors each market and store for the community. Its something they have nearly perfected. For instance, don’t offer as many Spanish language greeting cards in a predominantly non-Spanish speaking demographic. The higher the social economic a community is, there is likely more space dedicated to wine and higher end beef products.

      • Thanks for the info Jack. I feel better now and will continue to shop my HEB. The one we have here is the big store with all the bells and whistles. I did notice that the one here removed most of the clothing but added more meal simple and other food options. All you said makes perfect business sense.

  6. All I can say is what ex-nazi Niemoller said, when his beloved party came after him when he complained of persecution of his religion:
    First they came for the socialists,
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a socialist
    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a trade unionist
    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak out
    because I was not a Jew
    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left
    to speak for me.

  7. What is the best way I can cancel my Kohl’s credit card and let them know why they’re losing my business? I have had a credit card and have spent thousands of dollars over the last decade, but I’m done now. Can’t deal with hell they are jumping on the left bandwagon.

  8. Sending the following letter to Kohl’s CEO Michelle Gass:
    Enclosed is a check for $238.06 to pay this month’s balance on our Kohl’s credit card. As you can see from the statement, we are frequent shoppers at Kohl’s. In fact, an order from Kohl’s was dropped off on our doorstep yesterday afternoon. However, that will be the last order we will ever place with your company due to your decision to drop My Pillow. Your company certainly has the right to use economic pressure to promote your values, even if those values are un-American (i.e., suppressing free speech). However, we also have the right to do the same. Two can play this game. We will be encouraging everyone we know to boycott Kohl’s, as we are doing. You may feel elated about being able to “sock it to Trump,” but offending 74 million people who voted for him is certainly a terrible business decision on your part.
    Once the enclosed payment has been applied to our account, please cancel our Kohl’s credit card.
    Thank you, and have a nice day.

  9. If you are a Costco member, please call their corporate offices at 800-774-2678 to voice your support and appreciation for their decision to continue to carry and promote My Pillow products. They are receiving a lot of negative input from the other side (people cancelling their memberships, etc.), so they could use the encouragement. Let them know that we’re 74 million strong! We love their store, and we love their stand against the pressure of big tech and the media!

  10. I didn’t know they had blm shirts at Kohl’s. I did a good amount of Xmas shopping at Kohl’s, but ordered my my pillow gifts direct. Another store bites the dust. Bye bye Kohl’s, Bed Bath and beyond, and the rest of you retailers who are punishing hard working Americans in favor of Chinese crap. My family is done with you. I am enjoying the challenge
    Of shopping local. BUY American when you can.

  11. will never shop Kohl’s or Bed Bath and Beyond or Christmas Tree Shop that is owned by the same company that owns Bed Bath and Beyond. The Socialist Company’s are done as far as I am concerned. They are officially cancelled by me.

  12. Kancel Kohl’s! I am not usually into boycotting, but since it’s the only thing they seem to understand—-let’s do it! It works both ways, baby. And Trump supporters are more than 100 million plus. It was a landslide and most sane Americans know it. Big tech and big corps are running the whole show, not old bleary eyed Biden. He had to be led off the stage twice the other day. He can’t find his ass with both hands! They think we are just a bunch of stupes, that need to be instructed by these mealy mouths pansies in Congress. Plastic Pelosi that wants to defund the police and hates walls have now constructed the biggest wall ever to protect themselves AND involved those “jack-booted thugs” (the National Guard) that Trump wanted to put in Portland.

  13. Pulling the pillows should not of even been Considered. I closed my account with Kohl’s yesterday because they needed to stay with just selling products, instead of their political views into their merchandise. Which they didn’t do! People need the choice what they buy, not control by what they buy.
