In reversal, Nordstrom to ban drug-themed merchandise

Moschino? More like NOschino, at least at Nordstrom.

Because of pressure exerted by people like a Minneapolis drug counselor, Nordstrom has agreed to pull a drug-themed accessories line from the Italian luxury house, Moschino.

Earlier this week, a Nordstrom spokesman rejected the complaint from Randy Anderson, of Minneapolis, who said the line sends the wrong message. “We serve many different customers who each have unique tastes, which is why we try to offer a wide range of products,” the spokesperson said.

Today, however, the department store reversed course and will no longer sell the merchandise, something Anderson calls a “huge win.”
