Target to remove gender-specific labels from stores
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. –Target is getting rid of gender-specific signs in its stores.
The retail chain, which is headquartered in Minneapolis, wants to change the way children shop for items. They announced the changes in a statement that was posted on their corporate website.
Labels reading either “boys” or “girls” will get cut from the toy, bedding, and entertainment departments. The signs will stay in the clothing sections though.
Colors like pink and blue will also get removed from displays.
Target says the idea came from customer feedback. Changes will start in the next few months.
