SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gymboree is giving parents exactly what they are looking for this school year. The kids clothing & accessories brand crowdsourced feedback from around the country and revealed today what parents want most when back-to-school shopping: style, ease and fun. In response, Gymboree has partnered with a family-favorite celebrity and beloved brands to deliver "One Big Happy Shopping Trip"—complete with new product shops, events, experiences and special shopping offers.
"We love hearing from our customers—they inspire everything we do," Betsy Schumacher, mom of triplets and Executive Vice President and General Manager, Gymboree said. "Shopping should always be filled with style, ease and fun. This year, with the help of some very cool friends, we are excited to turn any old shopping trip into 'One Big Happy Shopping Trip'."
Parents told Gymboree that they are looking for a shopping destination that offers a range of unique styles and basics that are easy to mix and match, and are kid approved! To help earn kids' stamp of approval, actress and singer Sofia Carson, best known for her role as "Evie" on the Disney Channel original movie Descendants, will be sharing her favorite Gymboree pieces for going back to school in style. Making back to school extra cool, Gymboree is also giving fans a chance to win a virtual shopping spree with Sofia this fall.
