Grocery Store Ban on Pajamas Targets...Moms?

Moms, have you ever quickly run into the grocery store for a carton of milk wearing your PJ's under your coat? That kind of behavior will not be tolerated!—at least in one grocery store in Britain that recently instituted a dress code for its patrons.

So who exactly was this ban against pajamas directed against? You guessed it: Moms.


The grocery store recently posted notices requesting that customers be "appropriately dressed," which means that "footwear must be worn at all times and no nightwear is permitted."

According the store, "many young women have been coming into the store in their slippers and pajamas after dropping their children off at school." The dress code is meant to stop such offensive behavior!

The first person to break the dress code and be subsequently escorted off store property? Elaine Carmody, a 24-year-old mother of two, who was wearing pajamas with a coat pulled over top.

Do you ever wear pajamas to the supermarket? What do you think of this dress code?
