Kalene Krebs was running some errands with a friend and her son when the sign on a clothing shop door stopped her in her tracks. Printed clearly on a white piece of paper, the sign read “Children under 7 years old are not allowed in the store. Thank you for understanding.”
“I’ve never heard of a store banning children,” she told KVLY Valley News Live. “I was with a friend and my son, so I had my friend go into the store to ask why they didn’t allow children. They said they’ve had some horror stories of children running around wildly, hiding in racks of clothes, etc.”
Dean Clark and his wife own the local Plato’s Closet in Fargo, North Dakota. They said they posted the sign after one too many incidents of children misbehaving in their store. An employee agreed to make an exception for Krebs and her friend as long as someone held the child’s hand at all times. “We went in for a couple of minutes before we decided it was an absolutely ridiculous rule and left. I’m not going to support a business that doesn’t allow children in their doors and I’m sure many people would agree,” Krebs said.
