Coach Says It Will Stop Destroying Unsaleable Handbags After A Viral TikTok Revealed Demolished Merchandise Discovered In A Dumpster

Coach said it will stop destroying "damaged and unsaleable" bags after a viral TikTok video accused the company of slashing handbags and throwing them in a dumpster outside a mall in Dallas.

Anna Sacks, who posted the video, which has also been shared on Instagram, told her followers that Coach asks employees to deliberately destroy handbags per company policy. She alleged that the company used this tactic as a method to write down the value of its inventory for tax purposes. A spokesperson for Coach said this statement was inaccurate and that the company is not claiming any tax benefit from these items.
