A collection of one parent and two child categories where the name of the parent category is a combination of the names of the two child categories, which should be avoided.
An example of a triad would be a parent category named "Flashlights & Lanterns" with two child categories named "Flashlights" and "Lanterns". This naming convention does not add value to the hierarchy and should be avoided whenever possible. There are three ways to avoid a triad: 1) the two child categories should be moved up a level to replace the parent category; 2) remove the child categories and store the SKUs in the parent category; 3) rename the parent node with a broader label, i.e. "Personal Lighting".
