A recent news story told the tale of how Nordstrom’s, one of the larger high end retail chains, made a very public statement about the changes they are making to their notoriously lenient return policy. These changes are specifically designed to discourage the all to common practice of wardrobing retail purchases.
Nordstrom’s announced that in an effort to combat wardrobing, they would be adding large black tags to their lines of security measures. These wardrobing tags are affixed to the front of a particular garment. Attached to this tag is a paper card of instructions on how to remove the tag. The instructions also state that without the tag still on, the garment cannot be returned.
The point that Nordstrom’s is trying to make is to stop the likelihood of a customer wearing the product only one time before returning it.
By having wardrobing tags on the front of an outfit, the user will be less inclined to wear that particular item out in public. If they can’t wear it, they (in turn) will be less likely to buy the item in the first place.
It is just a matter of time before the customers who previously abused their liberal return policy are caught having to keep an item because they tore the wardrobing tags off and are now declined the refund.
