Madison, WI, 2017-Jul-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — East Towne and West Towne Malls will launch their Youth Escort Policy’s tomorrow, Friday, July 28, 2017. The Youth Escort Policy (YEP) is designed to provide all of its shoppers and retailers with a family-friendly, convenient and enjoyable shopping experience. The new policy – which will be enforced tomorrow beginning at 4 p.m. – requires all mall visitors under 18 years of age to be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is 21 years of age or older on Friday and Saturday evenings after 4 p.m.
The policy is in effect for all parts of the mall with the exception of department stores and stores with exterior entrances.
The Youth Escort Policy is intended to curtail the rising number of unsupervised youth hanging out at East Towne and West Towne Mall and related disturbances. Mall management is implementing the policy based on months of internal discussions and collaboration with local officials, customers, and retail partners.
The Youth Escort Policy can be found on both mall websites at ShopEastTowne-Mall.com/security or ShopWestTowne-Mall.com/security. It is also posted near the mall’s main entrances.
