Class Code 8008

Store: Clothing, Wearing Apparel Or Dry

Class code 8008 is used for employees that work for a retail store selling clothing, wearing apparel or dry goods. Stores that would fall into this classification would be those that sell ready to wear clothing such as dresses, suits, coats, hats, shoes, knitwear, slippers, undergarments, sleeping or lounge clothes, hosiery, gloves, scarves, etc. In addition, retail locations that sell home goods or miscellaneous sewing accessories, like laces, curtains, blankets, bedspreads, sheets, pillowcases, napkins, tablecloths, towels, textile trimmings or buttons, slides, yarn, thimbles, needles, zippers, pins, hooks/eyes, and hat bodies would also be included. Finally, employees of a coat or hat checkroom and anyone demonstrating or modeling apparel in a retail store would also be assigned to this classification.

While employees that work for this type of store may engage in incidental alteration work, tailor shops or those stores specializing in custom clothing production would be excluded. Dealers of ladies handbags, retail stores that specialize in sporting goods, and stores whose principal operations are via mail-order should also be classified separately and would not fall within the scope of class code 8008.
