Sorry just noticed my typo. I actually meant to say the system will "not allow" us to remove the category. We'll have to wait for them to release the updated version. I apologize for the typo.

The category can't have any products associated to it. If you go to the store and click on the category, do you see products? If so, you need to edit those products to not have the category.
