Toddlerz n the Hood

How do you keep a kid in the throes of the terrible twos from acting up in your store? You ban him from your shop from wearing a hooded sweatshirt.
Two-year-old Jay Cowper was wrapped up against the cold in a brown jacket with a furry hood when he went shopping with his grandfather in York.

Jay was asked to remove his hood by staff at Monkton Road Stores because of a "no hoodie" policy designed to tackle problems with troublemakers.

His grandfather refused out of principle and the pair were forced to leave the store.
The same shopkeeper is now being boycotted by a longtime customer who was told to remove her hood.

Sure, I support the idiot shopkeeper's right to do whatever the hell he wants to. It's his shop. Doesn't mean I can't call him a prick.

My favorite coach is never without his hoodie.
