no strollers allowed

 People who uses strollers as a way to steal out of stores messes it up for everyone else. During Christmas season my mom and I were out shopping with the baby and of course I had my stroller. I tried going into Areopostale but was stopped at the door and was told no strollers were allowed. Then yesterday I needed to go to the grocery store. I don't have a car so I walked to the one closest to my house and when I got up there I was stopped by a big ass sign that says no strollers allowed. I was beyond frustrated that I just walked up to that damn store for nothing.

Wow that sucks! ;(
The only stores that don't allow strollers around here are small grocery stores or small 99ยข stores.

 Yes they are because in the long run it causes in an convenience for people like me who doesn't have a vehicle ( I drive my moms car sometimes but it's hers so I don't over use it) that's trying to grab a few things. I don't want to have to carry my daughter and bags of groceries!

Quoting heatherd09:

Wow really?? I live in small town America, but frequently visit the Mall of America and have never had a problem. I think I would feel highly offended.
