Surf store pushes porn to young people


City_Beach_image.jpgAccording to youth surf retailer City Beach, it is 'much more than just another retail shop.' 

City Beach has a "philosophy" which is all about "playing a part in the day to day life of Australia's youth culture and life style." The stores are a "great place to meet up and hang out with your friends" and City Beach is "constantly assessing what it is that you want, and from that, we develop in-store entertainment for you that is unmatched by any other retailer in Australia." 

The fact that young people are City Beach's target market makes its commitment to stocking pornified fashion even more disturbing.
