08/20/07 GUESS is Pulling Fur From Its Stores!
Animal Friends writes to GUESS again
In June, Animal Friends joined an international campaign against selling of fur in GUESS shops, sending an appeal to GUESS shops in Zagreb and Rijeka, as well as GUESS Italia European HQ in Florence and GUESS, Inc. HQ in Los Angeles, USA, with a request that they stop selling fur apparel and fur trim.
GUESS reacted to this campaign by making a decision to continue selling fur during the autumn/winter 2007 season, but also to stop stocking new fur from September 2007, and to stop selling fur in all of its 800 outlets by April 2008.
With this praiseworthy move GUESS is helping animals which are killed for glamour, but has also gained respect by joining Bedo, Gant, Peek & Cloppenburg, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Zara and other companies which have stopped selling fur in their stores.
Animal Friends has sent a public letter of commendation to GUESS with a request that they act upon their decision as soon as possible.
