The industry is moving on.
But a little over a year after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it is unconstitutional to require children to wear certain clothing, retailers like Wal-Mart and Target are finally being forced to take responsibility for the way children are treated at their stores.
On Thursday, Target announced it will start requiring its kids’ clothing to be more child-friendly.
The company says that the new policy will help ensure children don’t fall victim to a rash of fashion faux pas.
Target says that since this policy was put in place, children who are shopping for clothes for their first birthday have reported an average of one false purchase, a decrease of about 10% compared to last year.
Target is now in a better position than ever to respond to fashion faux-pas that could cost children and their families money.
But that’s not to say retailers can’t make sure children’s clothing is child-safe.
Target is just one retailer to face this challenge, as a few have already decided to change their policies to allow children to choose their own outfits.
A few months ago, Nordstrom announced that it would stop charging customers $12 for kids’ apparel.
Target, Wal-Marts, and other retailers are all making the same move.
The retail industry is changing and adapting to the changing landscape of the consumer marketplace.
While some stores are still making the decision that their childrens clothing is for adults, others are making that decision for children.
This change is just part of the evolution of the retail industry as a whole.
For years, children’s apparel has been marketed as a luxury item.
But now, we’re seeing the same trends in the way we shop for clothes.
As we see the rise of digital products, we are seeing the rise in the availability of children’s clothes as well.
If you are an adult, it’s likely that your daughter is spending more time in a dressing room than she did before.
This trend is about changing expectations.
