Today, baby clothier Whimsical Walney announced that they will be closing at the end of business on February 9, 2009 as a result of the impact of compliance with the CPSIA.
Later in the day, the owner of Bella-Bambini, maker of elaborate but reasonably priced girls dresses, emailed to say they were also closing because of CPSIA.
These aren’t businesses that want to poison kids. They aren’t businesses that use lead. They make baby clothes from organic fabric and other natural materials.
Again…how many businesses have to fail before you pick up the phone? See the picture above. Is that what you want your downtown to look like?
Appalling. Simply appalling.
