What does the "attractive display" doctrine mean?

The attractive display doctrine mean that as a customer of a store, you may become distracted by a display in the store, which could cause you to overlook a spill or dangerous condition on the floor. The store owners purposely put up these types of displays to attract your attention, which is why they are held responsible for making sure that the floor is safe for you to walk on while you are looking at the display. While most of the time you may be held responsible for making sure that you avoid dangerous areas, in this case, the store owner is held liable because they created the "attractive display" that prevented you from safely passing through the store.
