Apparel Sellers Change Fitting Rooms Due To COVID

The New York Post reports:

In an effort to protect customers from the coronavirus, some clothing retailers have decided to sequester clothes that have been tried on in a fitting room. Saks Fifth Avenue aims to take its clothing out of commission for 48 hours after being tried on, according to a spokeswoman.

Macy’s is planning to quarantine its apparel for 24 hours, according to The Wall Street Journal, while other retailers, like Urban Outfitters and Target, are simply banning fitting rooms entirely.

Urban Outfitters, which just reopened some stores in Texas, already has signs in its store in the NorthPark mall in Dallas alerting customers that the fitting rooms are off limits. Target will be keeping its fitting rooms shuttered “out of an abundance of caution,” a spokeswoman told The Post.
