Vaal parents can now buy baby clothes and essentials

VAAL TRIANGLE - Vaal Triangle parents of babies and toddlers, as well as moms and dads-to-be, are allowed to now purchase baby clothing. This follows many requests for clarity on the sale of ‘baby care products’ after shops stopped selling clothing during the lockdown, despite the amendment to the regulation on 25 March, which allowed the sale of baby products. In a statement yesterday, the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs has clarified that the sale of baby care products, including clothing, is permissible. Non-profit organisations approached the courts, labelling the prohibition of the sale of baby clothing as unconstitutional. EWN reports Pick n Pay, Clicks, Shoprite and Checkers are some of the stores that will now sell baby and toddler clothing during the nationwide lockdown.
