NYC pharmacy slaps male shoppers with a ‘man tax’

Powered by Topple

A New York City pharmacy is making a political statement by slapping male shoppers with a “man tax.”

Thompson Chemists in Manhattan’s SoHo district posted signs in the store’s front windows announcing the new policy. A pink sign in one window reads, “New store policy: All Female Customers Shop Tax Free,” and the other window sports a blue sign that reads “All Male Customers Are Subject to a 7% Man Tax.”

The female owner of the pharmacy made the decision due to last year’s study showing women pay more than men for some products.

Wonder what the policy will be for transgender shoppers.
