It seems like kids are always outgrowing their clothes faster than you can buy them. With warmer weather on the horizon, many parents are realizing it’s time to stock up on new t-shirts, shorts and tank tops to replace last year’s now-too-small versions. But with uncertainty about inflation at an all-time high and prices for essentials like gas and groceries soaring, many families are feeling financially squeezed.
In response, Old Navy launched a new “Price ON-Lock” initiative, a commitment to freeze current price tags on children’s everyday fashion despite the industry’s soaring prices.
“At Old Navy, we are committed to staying true to our promise of democracy of style and service and are confident in our ability to offer great style, fit and quality at competitive prices across all categories,” Andres Dorronsoro, Old Navy senior vice president and Head of Merchandising said in a statement to Shop TODAY: “Our customers and parents in particular are feeling the inflationary pressures and we want to reassure them that they can outfit their children for summer and back to school with our everyday children’s fashion essentials at a guaranteed price and Value.”
The new initiative applies to boys’ and girls’ items labeled ‘Everyday Magic’ and will run through the end of September, giving parents plenty of time to get their back-to-school shopping done without worrying about price hikes. The Everyday Magic section is filled with affordable items like $5 t-shirts, $10 shorts, and $8 gym wear.
From graphic t-shirts to colorful leggings, here are some of the key kids’ fashion items included in the new initiative.
