Old Navy Continues To Stir Controversy After Up-Charging For Plus-Sized Women's Clothing! But They Claim To Have A Reason For It!
Major fail, Old Navy!!
The Gap-owned brand has found itself in some hot water again after up-charging for their women's plus-size jeans.
And with a range between a $12 to $15 price increase, customers are calling out this very obvious discrepancy! Especially considering all men's jeans remain the same price regardless the size.
A Change.Org petition has even been launched to change Old Navy's pricing policies, garnering over 35,000 signatures already! Renee Posey, the creator of the petition, shared:
Old Navy Falls Victim To The Photoshopped Thigh Gap Controversy With Their Plus-Sized Denim! But They Claim They're Not Guilty!
Old Navy is the latest retailer accused of Photoshopping thigh gaps on their products, particularly the mannequins wearing their plus-size denim.
Though the retailer explained:
Adults are finally getting comfortable with the term "plus-size", but is it okay for larger kids lines to be called the same?
The question was raised after Today checked into Sears' newly launched Pretty Plus collection, which offers "roomier" clothes for girls age 7 to 10, as well as Gap, Old Navy and The Children's Place plus-size clothing for children as young as 3.
Sometimes kids just need the larger sizes because they've grown faster, not necessarily because they are overweight, which is where the naming dilemma comes in.
With self-esteem issues coming up at very young ages, maybe it’s time to rethink the use of the word “plus.”
Watch the clip (above) and let us know what U think!
Old Navy apparently isn’t old enough to get their NFL history straight!
The retailer debuted a line of shirts for all NFL teams, each sporting a year that the team won a championship, but they got their info ALL wrong!
First and worst was the Houston Texans shirt that read
Old Navy, you should be ashamed of yourselves!
In Jacksonville, Fla., Army vet Aaron Bennett was banned from a store because he noticed an employee was wearing a military jacket, which is illegal!
The employee was wearing a Marines uniform
Old Navy is taking full responsibility for selling a cute Spider-Man children's rain jacket that "exceeds permissible levels of lead".
The retailer sent out a letter to the 140 parents who purchased the jacket in January to apologize for the oversight and request they send it back for a full refund.
Old Navy even offered each customer a $25 online gift certificate as "a gesture of appreciation".
Good for them for doing the right thing!
