Soon, Target will be doing away with gender-based signs in some departments.
The company announced on Friday that it will work to phase out the signs, particularly in non-clothing departments.
“Right now, our teams are working across the store to identify areas where we can phase out gender-based signage to help strike a better balance,” Target said in a statement. “For example, in the kids’ Bedding area, signs will no longer feature suggestions for boys or girls, just kids. In the Toys aisles, we’ll also remove reference to gender, including the use of pink, blue, yellow or green paper on the back walls of our shelves.”
Target said the changes will be happening after many requests from customers.
