The store that encourages you to shoplift Published: June 20, 2014

Here's an interesting new policy we'd love to see in the States: The Japanese clothing store GU recently announced that customers can try on up to three pieces of clothing and then leave the store to test-drive clothes out "in the wild," provided they return before the end of the day, according to Yahoo Shine.

Though it may seem like sanctioned shoplifting, the policy actually makes a lot of sense — the brand, owned by retail chain Uniqlo, is trying to combat the phenomenon of shoppers buying something, taking it home, changing their minds, and returning the item.
